Just launched my first 1# BP rocket using the formula, tools and press I just purchased from Rich and Claudia at Wolther Pyro Tools, and it was an amazing success, went high and straight. I look foreword to a night launch to see all the sparks from the course charcoal in the formula. It is hard not to like pyro especially when you make it yourself.

I use Rich Wolter's six pound core burner tool set for large cluster rockets. thirty six , six pound core burner rockets in a 14 inch tube makes an interesting rocket. Also Rich has great customer service! I called just to ask about a 16 inch six pound end burner tool set. He shipped it almost before I hung up the phone! Amazing customer service!

Hello Rich and Claudia, Just a quick post-convention note to let you know that the new 1-lb tools set you so kindly sent were a big success in the rocket seminars we gave at the PGI convention this year . Between the JPA rocket seminar and the two adult rocket seminars, about 75-80 rockets were made! It goes without saying they all flew well. We were able to run five stations and really allow a lot of folks an opportunity to make them. We put in a good word about you guys and your generosity in providing the sets. Hopefully they'll throw some orders your way. I'm also sold on the Nituff coating. I have been using stainless spindles for years and while they work great and are durable, they can sure be heck to get a well-pressed rocket off of...not so with the Nituff spindles on your kits. They all came off without the need to use the spindle-pulling tool we've had to use for years in the classes. We probably averaged around 15 rockets made on each set this convention and they show no signs of wear - and this was with all hand ramming by beginners. It always a pleasure to use tools of this quality - of course, I've known that since my first tool order from you back in 1983. Thanks again for providing them for use in the classes. Yours, Kurt

First Pyro tool I ever bought was this 1Lb BP rocket tool kit. I love it. Thanks for reminding me Doug about the formula. I could not guess were I got it. It is a very nice tool and I am very proud of it. the few rockets I have made did indeed work well. There is much to learn about this hobby but I know that having the right tools will make it a lot more enjoyable. I am looking forward to buying more tools from Wolter Pyro they are true quality.
