The cutter is not bolted to the shaft a spool is bolted to the prop, it is machined and centered on the shaft.
QuicKutters use a shaving principle like a lathe tool so there are no shock loads and they also have been shown to have no effect on performamce.
These are used by Navy and commercial vessels world wide, and fitted by builders like Christensen Yachts, Grand Banks, Aqua Star.
What you are all discussing is some old technology.
I'm gonna hazard a guess that you may be in some way affiliated with QuickKutter... This theory is based on your user name, the product name, and your (ahem) product knowledge.
Assuming that I am correct; there is NO problem with your participating in this forum, however a full disclosure of your interest in the company is required
Sorry for the thread drift, but everyone here should be informed of a commercial interest's participation.
