760mm from end of stick to body of rocket and sticks are about 10mm wide.
The pack of War Hawks I have: cross section 7mm x 8mm, approx 76cm long to start of first bit of plastic of lift charge tube (excludes fuse).
Ah cheers guys that helps as I've built the tube rack with 15 mm pipe so they should still be a rattling fit.
Watch out - 15mm diameter may be getting a bit close if some are 10x10mm square cross section as hofnerite says.
15mm should fine.... as long as the tube is straight!
20mm pipe conduit all the way
I was looking on screwfix tonight for some. Is it plumbing or electrical conduit?
Bought some from B&Q last but can't remember what it was and of course Screwfix would be half the price.
I've just bought 6 X 2m lengths of 20mm overflow pipe from B & Q for my new rack (rocket rack)
Plastic pipes are u guys talking about yea
That's the stuff, but I bet Screwfix do it at half the price. I've got three new racks (thanks IKEA) to kit out with tubes.
Bingo! http://www.screwfix.com/p/floplast-...tracking url&gclid=CMOFwp7V8c4CFa0V0wodiWMLMw
My rocket tubes seem to melt lol was thinking of using metal
I got mine from Screwfix last year, but was in B & Q and they happened to fall in the trolley
I use the larger poles from a couple of those crappy cheap gazebos that fall apart pretty quickly. The smaller poles I use as stakes.
You can put foil tape on the top 300mm of each tube to help it stop melting
I thought 20mm may be better too. I've already started building one rack but it's OK as I plan to use that with a pack of brothers extreme machines and I'm sure they have smaller sticks even the largest rocket in the pack.
I put aluminium tape on mine, even with a bit of melt, they still work fine, after a couple of years just, level em off and start again
turn them upside down
I use exhaust foil wrap 780 degree temp resistance but ain't cheap lol
