Vendors who drill props ?

I was looking at getting a 3 blade mejzlik prop for my DA 170. Any companies out there who will drill the prop for you when you order it ? I have an old drill press but its a POS and I do not trust it for drilling an expensive CF prop.

TY

The only Mejlick dealer I know of is DA and they dont drill. If you are willing to go with Falcon you can get drilled props from Northwest RC and VVRC.

I have taken props to a machine shop before. If you provide the drill guide a local machine shop will probably do it for you.

Try Chief Aircraft and go online. Search Mejlic Props for RC Airplanes.

Since this will most likely not be the last prop you buy, invest on a drill press.
