OJ PROPS ~ 80 YEARS ~ Thank You TT

What started in 1936 by my Great Grandfather Oscar Johnson at the age of 60, has now survived 80 years. Johnson Propeller (OJ PROPS) began in his garage with a gas furnance in the floor and and his skills as a blacksmith and exceptional craftsman with wood. With no formal education Oscar developed the ahead of his time propeller designs, carving single blade patterns from wood, molding and pouring the props in his garage with his son Ivar.

We have come a long way in the past 80 years and I still use Oscar's original template for pitch and rake distribution. His concepts certainly have stood the test of time. I'm sure he would be amazed as to how we produce propellers today with CAD designs and CNC machining.

We have been supplying propellers for MasterCraft, as well as other builders, for over 30 years. I want to thank all the TT members/ MasterCraft owners for the amazing support of our products over the years.

I am offering a special discount this Spring and Summer for TT members on our new WAKEPRO V-3 propellers, call 800-359-9730 for the details if interested.

Thanks to all again for your continued support of OJ PROPS.

Eric Johnson

Awesome! Thank you for your wealth of knowledge! It's great when you're able to talk directly to the owner of a company when a question or problem arises.... I don't think I've ever heard a bad thing about you or your company!

Eric, OJ props is a great company.

Does OJ take current props and clean/check it to verify that it is at the proper pitch?

Yes we can check your prop and clean it up. If it does not need repair we can do it for less than $50.00.
