Introduction: Black Powder Rocket Engine Diy
this is just a quick instruction on a super simple way to build black powder rockets for beginners they flay high and are
super fun be safe and vote for me :)
Step 1: Tools
i made the coring tools by my self with a nail a dowel and a drill i think by looking at the pictures you could figure that out
other than that all you need is a hammer some pvc to fit over the dowel and spoon
i made the black powder at home i will make a instructible on that later
Step 2: The Nozzle
i hammered clay dust and sand into the bottom of the tube before adding a small amount of water if you have bentanite clay don't bother with the water
Step 3: Fuel
now drop some milled black powder into the tube and hammer, repeat until you have a hard core up to just above the top of your nail/coring device.
Step 4: End Plug
after the fuel is in and packed hard ad around a 1/4 inch clay to the top using a shorter piece of dowel than before
Step 5: Fuse and Removal
i had some extra cotton twine lying around so i rubbed the remaining black powder in to it and it burned nicely
to remove the rocket just twist and pull up till it comes off
Step 6: Launch Prep
just before launch check all the plugs and nozzle for cracks put in the fuze
also tape a long strate stick or dowels to the rocket and cut it until it balances
Step 7: Firing!!!!
to fire insert fuse with some extra black powder and light always be safe and watch from far back
We have a be nice policy.
