    No these were actually made on Cox's very own motor making machine. Before it exploded and killed a few people. Or they could have been made by MPC who made the later COX engines.

    No, Cox had their own motor making machines.

    These machines existed until the early 1990s when they were broken up for scrap. :(

    I Remember That these motors had almost white nozzles with a very smooth finish and the casings were very precise looking

    White nozzles indicates they were using a different cat litter than Estes used

    I remember those, especially the all in one ignitors. The Nichrome and pyrogen was affixed to a plastic plug. Stick it in the motor and connect via a special plug. Cox Ignitor + ESTES motor = CATO, plastic plug stuck in nozzle

    I have a recipe for nozzle mix that uses bentonite clay, grog (powdered ceramic dust) and paraffin wax. Turns out incredibly hard once compacted! Great for small ex motors or bottle rockets.
