ON A PERSONAL NOTE WE WILL BE CLOSING THE BUSINESS FROM THE 26TH OF JULY
UNTIL THE 3RD OF AUGUST, RE OPENING ON THE FRIDAY FOR BUSINESS AS NORMAL.
SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE. CHEERS.
Busy time of the year with the end of financial year, winter down south and busy up north,
school holidays etc. Its all happening. Its a great time of the year to do all those rotten jobs around the
house, on the boat what ever goes when you cant go boating. My favorite is wheel bearings and steering.
Now back to propellers and the associated things that happen day to day. We are having a rush of
older propellers bought it that clearly havent had enough grease applied or even often enough. This is
a winter job. Takes 5 minutes to remove the propeller, grease the parts and refit it. With our new Rubex
bush system you need to check the nut for tightness regularly as this system grips the bush, not the
propeller, for gearbox protection and safety so the nut needs to be firm at all times.
The rubex system is so popular and successful that with all new ideas and upgrades there tends to be
someone that wants to make a buck out of it the easy way. The rubex bush has been copied via mainland
casting agents in China contacted by some very lose Australian businesses trying to make a buck the easy way.
Its illegal and dangerous to fit a plain packaged copy item to a SOLAS propeller that doesnt have the same specs
on the rubber drive for a start. Even down to the nylock nut using inferior nylon in its end.
So unless you get the distinct RUBEX dark blue carton with SOLAS and their patent number inprinted on the carton,
you are buying an inferior copy. They are not cheaper. As a matter of fact we supply these free with the purchase
of a Rubex Propeller as well as a spare insert with every Stainless purchase.
Ok back to the grind for us. have a good month.
Michael and Cheryl
