1Lb. Black Powder Rocket Refill Kit (no tools)
This is a refill kit for our 1# Black Powder Rocket Kit. It contains everything in that kit, except the 1# rocket tooling.
This spectacular black powder rocket is easy to make. Adding titanium gives the normally orange tail a bright silvery finish.
1# rockets are small enough to fly in backyards, yet large enough to carry a heavy 3-inch canister shell with ease.
Each kit contains a professionally made tool set and enough supplies to make 25, 1# (3/4-Inch) black powder rockets:
- Potassium Nitrate, 2 pounds, (#CH5304)
- Airfloat Charcoal, 1 pound, (#CH8068)
- Sulfur, 1 pound, (#CH8315)
- 1# Parallel Tubes, 25, (#TU1068)
- Bentonite Clay, 1 pound, (#CH8078)
- Titanium Powder, 1/2#, (#ZCH3006)
- Visco Fuse, 10 ft, (#GN1008)
You save 20% off the retail prices of the individual components when you buy this kit.
You can use hand-made black powder with this kit (but be sure and follow our project instructions closely). You definitely do not need a ball mill.
If you're going to hand-make your black powder rocket fuel, you'll be using several screens--40-mesh, 4-mesh, and 10-mesh screens. If you don't already have them, you can get them here at Skylighter. You'll also need a blade-type coffee mill (cheap at WalMart).
Now, if you want to make black powder easier, faster, and with less work, a ball mill is the way to go (use lead balls to mill your BP). You can definitely crank out more BP with far less work and hassle this way.
You can fly your black powder rockets day or night, with or without a heading. Flying Fish fuse and Falling Leaves fuse make a great, light-weight heading.
