I’m always fascinated by how stuff is made. An AVweb editor recently toured Sensenich‘s prop factory in Plant City, Florida. He produced a short video of the manufacturing process. Sensenich uses state-of-the-art, computer controlled equipment to make their propellers. Just image what this process would have been like 50+ years ago!
