Hello,

I am new to the forum.
I am looking for technical drawings or blueprints for WWI propellers. Does anyone know where can I obtain them?

I know that Achim Engels produce replicas of Axial propellers. As far as I remember he used to sell blueprints as well.

tanks for help!

There are very few (almost none) of the original drawings still around. Most reproduction propellers have to be manufactured from existing propellers, and often it's even very hard to find the correct one of those.

So there are few blueprints. As far I've tracked via WWI Aeroplane following blueprints:
-Bentley 230hp propeller for Sopwith Snipe. But it's a reconstruction, not an original dwg.
-Drawing for Fokker DVIII/EV fom 1920s. Again - it cames from an American book.
They have some books about designing and construction of the propellers.

I've noticed that someone has drawings for SPAD propeller and for AXIAL prop. Is it possible to get a copy of the drawings?

thanks
Piotr

Hi Piotr,
I have a WW1 Sopwith Triplane Propeller blue print and some WW1 British Propeller blue prints, as well as some WWI German Propeller blue prints if you're interested

If there's any possibility of getting some CAD drawings, I'd love to have some. I just got a woodworking CNC at work, and I'm going to try and build a prop...even 2D CAD drawings will help, I can work from there.

How exactly would a CAD drawing be created? I have the props, but I have no idea how to get a CAD part done.

Does anyone know how to obtain copy of the Axial prop that Achim created? I tried to email the US contact via email and did not get a response. I even tried emailing Achim and never recieved a reply. I know there are some pictures of his blue print floating around on theaerodrome website. I ended up having to take the small picture of the blue print posted there and recreating the blueprint to a useable scale.

I am in the process of creating a smaller scale version of the 2620mm prop. I am going to end up with a 7 foot prop instead of the 8+ footer. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello wooden propellers enthusiasts

I'm also looking for any documentation or CAD drawings of real historic propellers. Simply I want to make a replica for my living room just not want to make a silly shape. All help will be highly appreciated.

Would anyone have images for the following props:
British and Colonial P.43
Lang L.P.1020A
Integrale I.P.C.2360

I would especially appreaciate pictures of the "decals" (I do have something that is Integrale, probably proper era).

One of these would have been the type used on the original Sopwith built Pup N6184. Since dropping it (i.e. my replica) into the Wisconsin river, I am looking for a new prop, and if the one snj5 loaned me is similar to one of those, I will duplicate it with a steeper pitch. If not, the Culver guys can carve me one that is at least similar in shape. Any help would be appreaciated.

Would the books sold here have these?
