Old as Dirt!

People with a little experience can usually avoid making dumb mistakes. On the other hand, one only gains experience by making dumb mistakes.

Unless you really ground the heck out of the blades you may not feel much difference in the running gear although the cutlass bearing will likely wear a little more quickly. Most folding blade props are not particularly well balanced anyway and adjust somewhat by blade angle. If you've a fixed blade prop and it feels "off", a prop-shop can probably grind and re-balance it at little cost.

Live'n learn. Next time use a little RydLyme or a similar product to remove the calcium deposits. You might also try "Speed Prop" or a similar dressing that limits growth on the prop.

Good luck...
