Help!
Where can I buy a pitch guage?

Man these things are hard to find. I have googled ebayed and everything I can think of and no one makes them.

I found that Prather used to make one but no luck finding it. I saw a picture of an awesome one that said Go pitch guage but again no luck. This Go one is clever but I can not find any info on it. http://www.go-cl.se/propg.html

By what I can tell about them, they are all hand-made by enthusiasts. The only one I found that you can actually by from a company (I believe its a company) is this one:

http://www.ozspechobbies.com/prop_pitch.html

And it's for boat props. IF anything, I say look up online on how to build your own. They don't look like they will take that long. Just have to get the right parts and burn the diagram to the metal frame at the right spots and such.

I wish you luck on buying/finding one if you don't have the time/skills to make your own

EDIT* And here you go, regards to RCGroups for a search feature (This is for TRex heli blades. But Im sure it can be modified to work with any blades)

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...itch+gauge+PDF

And a website for a mini Pitch Gauge. Looks like it might be for small blades, under 10"

But yeah, you just have to know how to work Google to find this stuff

First link refers to the Prather Prop Pitch gauge.
IMO pretty well as good a guage (in real life uses) as it gets.
