So I finally order everything I need to make my own rocket fuel and engines. Once I get down how to make the fuel properly I will attempt to make a tube launched series of rockets. Hopefully I will be able to make a model icbm so it launches from the ground in a silo. I will get pics of everything as I go along.
1. KNO3 - its part of the propellant
2. Bentonite clay - to make the rocket nozzles
3. Grog - it helps hold the nozzles together
4. Pyrotechnic fuse - to light the engines
My first attempt at a nozzle. Its not too bad but I need to cut my pipe more evenly and when school starts again I will be able to use a lathe to set my nozzles at dead center.
My fuel and Oxidizer:
A fully prepared rocket(except for fins because I have no balsa wood):
After a test fire:
This is where I got all my information http://shadow.yak.net/125
