How many different hit and miss engine plans did Phil publish in HSM ? Is there a book with all of them ?

There are four sets of IC engine plans in The Shop Wisdom of Philip Duclos: Odds 'n Ends Hit 'n Miss Engine; Smallest "Hit & Miss Engine?; "Whatzit" Engine; and Six-Cycle Odball Engine.

Philip's gearless hit & miss engine is found in the book, Two Shop Masters.

Both books can be purchased from Village Press for about $40, each, plus shipping.

I do not know how many plans were published in HSM. For sure, those listed above were.

So many projects, so little time.

I have both books. There are lots of engines to keep you busy for a while. Good drawings and instructions.
