Propeller Making for the Amateur is for the truly devoted homebuilder, for the woodworking aficionado, and for maintenance and repair needs of manufactured wood propellers.

It is a simple but comprehensive set of instructions for the making of wood propellers for the amateur aircraft builder. This booklet takes you step-by-step through the design and construction process of wood propellers using simple and common shop tools.

From the Foreword:

"We in the propeller business know how difficult it is to export our wares to some regions of the world. This little jewel of a book should enable anyone, anywhere, to do a respectable job of making his own propeller. I heartily recommend it."
~ Ray Hegy
