Default Sopwith Camel Propeller Design Information

Hello,

I am looking for the drawings, or design information, for the Sopwith Camel propeller. We are looking for documentation that gives the dimensions and pitch at various cross-sections along the length of the propeller length. Does anyone have this information?

My sons and I built a CNC machine in our garage and we would like to make a Sopwith Camel propeller to display over the machine.

Thanks,
Mike

Sorry for the late response. To my knowledge no one has the actual drawings for a Sopwith Camel propeller. In fact very few drawings seem to exist for any of the WW1 propellers.

Measurements can be taken from existing propellers as a template, but that's the only way I know of to make a reasonably accurate reproduction.
