Propeller shaft straightening is essential when even a slight bend causes problems! We specialize in straightening 1” to 1 1/8” diameter shafts for outboard and stern drive propellers without the need for removal from the gear case, ensuring precision within +/- .005.

The people at Nettle Props have awesome customer service and they really know their stuff. I came in with a small ding in my prop, wanting to get a backup. They fixed mine (very quickly, I might add) and suggested a better and very affordable prop to better suit my needs. The "backup" has become my primary because it pushes my boat better for my needs. Thank you Nettle team, keep doing what you are doing!

Ran my prop into a rock, hair lipped two blades and bent the prop shaft.. They Straightened prop shaft, repaired prop and some aluminum trailer repair/ welding. Price was what was quoted and it was done early ahead of schedule.. They offer a premium service and do good work.. If needed I would not hesitate to use them again and I highly recommend them..
