It's a bust. Group Buy - Harmonic Prop Puller

This is a carry-over from another thread. I just emailed Steve Schnitzer who is interested in working with us on a group buy for Acme Harmonic Prop Pullers. I think they usually sell for around $30 per unit. I've asked him to give us a quote as to how many people we need and a per unit price and am waiting to hear back.

I've never organized one of these before, so if anyone has any advice or wants to take the helm, now'd be the time.

Let me know if you're interested.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Doug,
I currently have a prop puller... not sure what kind it is... Thankful that I have only had to use it once. It is the treaded type that reaches behind the prop... and as you tighten it down it pops the prop loose. Would the one that you are working on work any different. Price talks... could be a good Christmas Gift.

Okay, heard back from Schnitz. With a group buy of 15 or more, we can get them for $28 delivered in the United States.

Don't forget to let me know what the diameter of your prop shaft is.

So far, we have two on the list. You can email me if you like.

15 deliveries. We could get more of a discount with 1 delivery, but quite frankly, I don't want to juggle all of that and think that he may have a better handle on good shipping deals than someone like me.

Tom, this is different. It just screws onto the end of the shaft in place of the nut. You hit it once or twice with a hammer and (in theory) it pops off.

Tim has had good results with his.

Thanks Doug... Since I have only had to use once in over 9 years. I'll put the $28 towards carpet/skins. This for the information and effort. "Two hit with the hammer", hmmmm.

Let's say "taps."

Probably not a bad thing to have handy if you ding your prop though. I'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

For $28 bucks I'll give one a try, even though I have the other type. Could be a lot easier if need to swap at the lake. If it doesn't work it will be an interesting paper weight in the office. I have 1 1/8" shaft.

Got you down Tom, and welcome to the board. Are you on the Lakes at Cypress Hills? If so, my compliments on a beautiful ski site. I was there for regionals (not skiing).
