Got my AG71/Gorilla cases in today!

"Experimental" rocket motors are an exciting way to delve deeper into the hobby.

Got my AG71/Gorilla cases in today!

Postby DBMcCann » Wed Mar 16, 2016 2:29 pm

Couldn't pass up that deal. I just got shipment of my internals, so I thought I'd share a photo or two.

Nozzles and bulkheads are from Dan Patell, Cases are from AG71, thrust and snap rings from McMaster (going to need a bit of grinding). Currently going to share nozzle washers until I can get some more of those. Went with 28 for the 54/1050, 36 for the 54/1750, and 44 for the 54/2550 on the nozzles.

And with all my 54mm snap rings. Loki 54/1200, 54/1050, Loki 54/1600, nozzle for a 54/1750 still on it's way to me, and the 54/2550. (again no nozzle washers installed yet on the AG71 cases)

Little time with the dremel and a file and we've got the 2550 fitting into an aeropack.

If they are all the same spec as AMW then, how come my AMW spiral rings won't fit into Aero pack retainers?
AMW's do without any mods??

Not sure what you mean.... But these were mcmaster carr rings i installed.... then ground quite a bit to fit into the aeropack.
