RFM folding carbon props don't fit RFM turbo spinner?

I just got a 12x8 and 12.5x8 RFM carbon and the 30x4mm turbo CF spinner... and the blades don't fit. horizontally, they fit fine. the hole size is fine. it's the shape of the prop at the base when it's extended, it protrudes and rubs on the inside of the metal hub area.

what's going on? the 12.5x8 ALMOST works, the 12x8 is a more oval shape at the base and isn't even close. am I really supposed to file the bases to MAKE it fit? seems stupid to have to do on a $30 prop to fit a $30 spinner... I don't get it. help!
