I have a small metal lathe, if some one needs to they can send me a few zincs and tell me how small they need them. i will turn them down to what ever size they need.
just pay shipping both ways.

Ok, I'll admit it. I usually grind down a 1" collar zinc for our shaft about once every 2 years, as needed. We only have a clearance of around 1/2" between the prop and the cutlass bearing on our old Tartan 27.
I looked into the 'drive savers' but since zincs are cheaper I keep grinding them down with: a grinding wheel, a 4-1/2" grinder and breathe zinc dust now and then.
Not much fun and there has to be a better way.

Newly purchase older boat with 1" shaft. Need to reduce shaft collar zinc annode profile size by 4mm each side. Should this be done on lathe or other suggestions?
