They are pricey though! And they are selling a part for using it with the Moki which will add even more. Unless I can find someone to machine a transition from 4mm to the Tru Turn bolt size. I think its 10/32. I like that the Tru Turn blade cutouts can be done for my prop no extra charge, it is a German SEP prop, wood, with a very wide blade. N8622t your cowl/spinner looks terrific!

just a tip on the cowl opening...before you cut at your mark, glue in your reinforcement support because the cowl turns into a bowl of jello after cutting the nose ring out. Itíll save you a lot of work

The alum tube is so soft that I straightened it across my knee so I ordered some T6 6061 aluminum tubing to replace it

wondering if carbon fiber tube will work with 4mm wall thinkess ?

Maybe check your dimensions? I mean yes it would work by I doubt anyone actually makes a CF tube that O.D. With a 4mm wall thickness.
