    cutting aluminum impeller diameter

    Does anyone on this site have the ability or know someone who can 'recut' a tapered aluminum impeller. Such as taking a worn out one welding new material to outside edges which I can get done, but then finishing it to proper size to fit in the wear ring. The west coast firms do not do this. My old Wetjets use this type of impeller so did the Kawasaki 550's.

    Have you tried Impros? I believe They recondition props and impellers.

    Re: cutting aluminum impeller diameter

    Anybody with common sense, basic measuring tools, and a lathe can do it. Measure the taper, set up a cutting guide on the lathe, then weld and regrind. But good luck finding a real machinist these days and not just some empty shell of a body standing in front of a machine tool.

    That's why I am asking here, lots of watercraft information, & no Impros doesn't do old aluminum impellers, I have used them to do my 15F impellers over the years.

    If you can explain to a real machinist what needs done they can do it.
