End burning rockets are similar to Estes rockets--the hobby rockets a lot of us grew up with. This type of rocket usually has a longer burn time than core burning rockets but produces less thrust.
End burners make ideal drivers for girandolas, wheels and other projects that need longer duration than a typical core burning rocket provides.
Each tool set is machined from 6061 aircraft grade aluminum and stainless steel to fit Skylighter tubes. It's designed to be used with 3/4" ID x 7.5" long (or less) parallel tubes.
The removable, replaceable stainless steel spindle is mounted with allen head screws in bottom and side, which prevent the spindle from turning. The base has 2 flat sides machined for solid gripping, and can be easily clamped to your workbench.
Each End Burning Rocket Tooling Set contains:
- One aluminum base
- One stainless steel removable spindle
- One 8.5" long hollow ram with nozzle former
- One 7.75"-long solid ram. Both rams are milled with several thousandths setback along most of their length and each has a hole drilled through the top so they can be pulled out of the tube using the T-puller.
