Stinger Missile Rocket Tools
Whether you are a rocket nut or not, Everyone gets a hoot out of Stinger Missiles. They are a hot-rod version of the Class-C (1.4G) item called Warhead Launcher, a spin-stabilized rocket. The rocket flies by first spinning (on a nail) rapidly to achieve gyroscopic stability, then takes off vertically. They don’t need sticks or fins. You can make them with headings (a shell, a report, flying fish fuse bursting out, or whatever) or without. Fuel is generally black powder plus some metal for sparks but can be any rocket fuel. They are easy to make and all you need is some chemicals, the Stinger toolkit, and some parallel tubes. Click here for instructions.
These things are the closest to instant gratification you can get. I made about 10 of them in 30 minutes on the back of my pickup’s tailgate recently. We will be restocking them in three sizes, 3/4 inch, 1-inch and 1.5-Inch diameters (called "One Pound," "Three Pound," and "Six Pound" rockets, respectively). Shoot ‘em "neat" or jazz ‘em up with spark tails, rising comets, or headings.
Each toolkit consists of a base and spindle, a hollow rammer, a solid rammer, a drill bit, and an optional drill guide. One rammer forms the nozzle from clay and rams the composition around the spindle. The second rammer is used for ramming composition above the nozzle. The drill guide is used to precisely align the side hole off-center in the tube where the rocket is ignited and which causes the spinning.
Use parallel tubes only for these rockets. Since Stinger tubes are shorter than our standard, pre-cut tubes, I suggest you get the long uncut tubes and cut yer own to size, or buy pre-cut stinger tubes. Stingers can be rammed with a hammer; you do not need a press as long as you stick to black powder based fuels.
Our Universal Stinger Drill guide is used to align and drill the tangental vent hole which "spins" the rocket for a stabilized flight. Works on al...View full details
