Default WWI propellers - technical drawings/ blueprints

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
