Pocket Rocket

Unread postAuthor: spudshot » Mon Feb 14, 2005 8:56 pm

<div align="center">POCKET ROCKET

I finished my new combustion launcher, all out of black iron piping, its called the pocket rocket, and measures only 13 1/2" long. a spritz of cologne sends wire nuts flying. the parts from cap to barrel are 3/4" endcap, 3/4" 6" nipple, 3/4" coupling, 3/4"-1/2" reducing bushing, and a 1/2" 6" nipple.

it took me about 5 minutes to put it together, but about 45 minutes to cut out the letters from tape.

How did you get it to arc in the chamber? A wire inside the pipe or something?
