I think it is done.
Some finished pictures of my Philip Duclos "Gearless Hit and Miss" engine from plans in Home Shop Machinist in 1993.

Ciao a tutti
Chiedo se possibile avere i disegni per la costruzione?
È un modello molto bello.
Ciao James
Li trovi sulla rivista "Home Shop Machinist" 1993 vol.12 N.3-4-5-6 (Devrai cercarla usata perché non so se ci siano state ristampe)

PS. Aggiungi la traduzione in inglese anche se da google ;)

Quindi devo cercare la rivista? Dove si possono trovare queste riviste?

So should I look for the magazine? Where can these magazines be found?

Thank you all, it was a long time getting done.
James, whether the magazines are still available or not I don't know. you could check with Storefront « Village Press
They did collect all of Philip Duclos articles in two books, and the "Gearless" is in "Two Shop Masters" along with three other internal combustion engines an air motor, and a flame licker. " The Shop Wisdom of Philip Duclos" has four more I.C. engines and a lot of other stuff. Those should still be available. I think he had fun figuring out other ways to do things, and make interesting engines. My first model engine was the "Maverick" and I really appreciated his clear descriptions of how to make some of the parts. Some people don't need that, but it really helped me.
They are all in English, with inch dimensions.
Good luck with it!
Doug
