Sounds like a good plan to me!


I'm crazy busy at the mo with work and the run up to the season, plus I want to get some more BP and stars made up before I next have a play but I'll drop you a message this evening and we can see what similar interests we've got and hopefully get something sorted!

All working now, thanks again Vic,


I've got some 15mm Aluminium bar stock ordered and a design for 15mm ID stinger style rockets (I've got an abundance of 15mm tubes and always fancied trying the stinger design). I'll put some photos up as this progresses.

Essex Tube Windings will do single quantities of card based tubes up to 6", I've bought of them before and they're fine to deal with. Otherwise CAT 4 suppliers such as MLE often sell single fibreglass tubes, and Pyroquip are probably worth looking at too.

Hi guys, I notice the website that used to host the 'rocket tool sketcher' is no longer available. If I remember rightly there was a downloadable version. Does anyone have a copy of this and would be kind enough to send it over? I've finally got a lathe to play with and I reckon that would make a nice little project.
