Not going bad so far, just waiting on a tailstock die holder to finish off the spindle, I might take a bit more off the middle of the spindle too, its just a question of what the chuck will support without the piece being knocked out of centre.

Some cat 4 pyro courses and the odd stage pyro course are just pay to attend, and will cover rigging and firing. In terms of courses to actually design pyrotechnic articles, I would assume that that particular subject is a bit too niche for a course, unless you count the ones at Cranfield, which look fantastic, but are, alas, very expensive:
