Tab Tool


With high-performance rotor balancing systems like the Chadwick-Helmuth 8500C, the need to "Fine-Tune" rotor blade trim tabs to within a fraction of a degree is critical. High accuracy means quick solutions.

Our new Tab Tool Kits provide consistent, precise, and reliable tab bends in increments of .001 in (.025 mm). These new kits provide innovative features including:

  • Dial Indicator to provide highly accurate, repeatable adjustments.
  • Tab Bending Tool which allows the user to directly read tab position as bends are made.
  • Mechanical provisions that retain the Tab Measurement Tool on the blade and position the Tool repeatedly in the proper measurement position.
  • Zero Reference Tool to set the Tab Measurement Tool to the manufacturer's zero point.
  • A protective case for transport and storage.

These new Tab Tools Kits are available for use with most helicopter models. Please contact us for your application.

Each tool comes complete in a high impact rugged carrying case containing:

  • Tab Measurement Tool
  • Dial Indicator
  • Tab Bending Tool
  • Zero Reference Tool
