I am traveling right now and don't have the invoice to hand, but I believe it was under $200.00 for the "machining' of the blades.

Hope this helps.

Good morning Terry ?

Thank you so much for the info on the cost.

How about the cost to repitch the blade?

Thanks in advance.

Alexandre, here is what I paid.



On visual inspection It does need a new bearing kit. All
3-blades bearings are worn & the blades loose on the hub.

Cost for Bearing Kit - $851.83. Includes new bearings,
Tamper proof plugs, Tab Washers, Expanding nut & bolt, zinc
& shaft nut Locking Bolt & VC-3.

Labour for Bearing replacement & pitch change - $367.50.

Total - $1219.33
