has anyone recycled their prop for scrap metal?
I have an old OJ legend 3 blade that cannot be repaired and i'm thinking of just taking it to the local recycler to see how much i could get for it.

Best I can figure would be about $2.40 a pound.

You might get enough to cover the gas to take it there.....

Not sure what you'd get for that alloy, but last time I made a scrap run I believe iron was around $9 per hundred. When scrap was at its peak I'd get a few hundred per pickup load of mostly iron/steel.

Point being, you won't get anything for a single prop. Start a pile, when it weighs at least 1000 lbs bring them for scrap. I feel for you if you go through enough props to be worth a scrap run.

Best used as a paper weight, or coffee table ornamental.

Chicks load our houses with bowls of stinky dried up flowers - its time we start re-decorating with mangled nibral and various wake paraphernalia.

i would doubt you can even recycle its. its a alloy, not a single type of metal. so when melting it down you would have to find a way to re seperate the puddles of liquid metal.

ski boat props are made from Nibral. short for Nickle Brass Aluminum.
i highly doubt there recyclable..........

Great wall hanger and thats about all if its not repairable. I have a couple on my garage wall that are great conversation pieces. All were donated, always been lucky myself.

Yeah taking it down to the scrap yard isn't a bad idea. But I would suggest you wait till you have enough metal with you because that will fetch you some good bucks at a scrap yard. Scrap dealers are more interested in buying a bulk of scrap. There's a SIMS facility in Sacramento that's into car scrap recycling, not too far from where you live. These people accept ferrous and non-ferrous metal both so look them up and pay them a visit if you're interested in metal recycling.

If you send it in to OJ and they can't repair it, they will give you $100 off a new prop for scrap value.
