SMI-DG-H
(hinged degree gauge for all other propellers)

The unique Smithco Degree Gauges, as shown above, make setting the blade pitch fast, easy and accurate. Select your desired blade angle on the gauge. Slide it into the special index hole in the blade and rotate the blade until it stops. That's all you do and you can be sure all the blades have the same angle setting. The hinged clamp on the SMI-DG-H model allows setting the blade pitch angle of a propeller assembled on a motor shaft.
