Mixing Sieves and Screens
Mix up large batches of star composition or propellants in short order. Just run your fuels through these sieves and they come out a fine powder, no lumps and works just as well with oxidizers. WARNING: DO NOT SCREEN OXIDIZERS AND FUELS TOGETHER.
The screens are fastened to a wood frame of knot free pine, glued and fastened at the corners, and given two coats of shellac and sanded a smooth furniture like finish to prevent charcoal etc. from sticking to the surface. The frame is then finished with a wood molding over the edge of the screen wire to prevent pricked fingers. Replacement screen is available; please inquire. Note: After using oxidizers I recommend washing the screen in water to prevent oxidation of brass screen. Enquire about stainless steel wire.
I wanted to drop you a note and tell you thank you for such EXCELLENT tools! I made some 1lb., 3lb. and 6lb. gerbs for July fourth. They were FABULOUS! I made them with Perigrin's fuel formula. I had rammed them with a 2½lb. dead blow mallet. I alternated each increment so the effect was a pulsating gold to silver, to gold to silver, etc.
I also made some 1lb. core burners with red, silver, blue and green stars respectively. I used a fuel formula you suggested. What NICE rockets! Everyone loved them.
Thanks again for making such great tools and in so doing helping make my humble pyro efforts a resounding success!
