Hello all!

I'm guessing these blades are not fixable.. :( Is there anyone who can put some new wings on this hub and balance them? These came off the 1906 cake.

I have no idea why someone would drill these holes.. Whyyy :( :hammer: :hammer:

People do some funny things to balance blades. Drilling holes in them is actually one of the more common methods I have seen. My favorite is welding pennies to the bent blade. You can try Ted Kazor maybe or Nick Loos to repair the blade. Im not sure if they are taking in any work but I know they make blade sets and do good work.
