@Gaffboat The flat bottom of the groove in the hub aligns the four blades.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Knots are heavy. Avoiding knots in the prop might make it balance better. Don't ask me how I know this.

Hi TeenGees ~ your point is noted. In this instance not one knot is included in the build. This is not to say that not having a knot is branching out and is not discriminating against knots. Indeed over time I have not overlooked Knots and feel this is not a small matter. My most important knots should not be overlooked. I include the reef knot which not in the sea, the honda knot that is not on a motor bike and the tarbuck knot which is not connected with Jimmy Tarbuck.

Regards

Branching out is fine but getting to the root of the reference to knots is not a simple thing and not to be taken lightly, which the prop would be if you do not include knots.

Hi TenGees - It is difficult to answer your knotty question but on balance the answer is Knot At All.
