Is that an Emerson blade on there, or a custom job?

 It's a custom job..  I got the cut out from a friend then finished it for the 6" GE.. still had to make a coining die, custom hub, cover button,balance and polish, A lot of work ... I'm a retired tool maker and limited to what I can do now..but he is still working..  he also made some 3 inch 5 bladed ones.. This is one on my Red Rex.. The others sold on eBay last year.. I think he has two more six blades that he's going to be putting up on eBay soon, look for them..when they're gone they're gone that's the way he rolls..

That’s pretty cool! A 6-wing pizza slice place would look cool on there too.

After working for years on aluminum, iron and steel, it was a steep learning curve for me to get used to working with brass.
Bronze is much easier, in my opinion, but more costly.
Also, there are numerous grades of brass that you need to understand.
Plus, brass reacts to heat by softening, not hardening, like steel does.
A coining die shapes metal between two tools in a press.
The radius of the blade can be rolled in with a slip roll doing opposite wings at each time in the tool. It takes more time and the pitch is set after the radius is rolled, but it is possible without the coin die.
It took me quite a while to get the hang of polishing brass, as well.
Still learning, by the way.
Cheers,
Bill

it's two curved pieces of metal, that when the flat blade is sandwiched in between and put in a press it puts the curve in the blade to the desired shape.. The word coining die is tool maker jargon.
