had nothing better to do so i figured id go ahead and start on something...

i had a bunch of tubes lying around... one that was alittle more than 24mm inside wide, and rather thick around the sides, so i had to sand it down... then i just decided to cluster 2 of em... before i knew it i had a mess of saw (cardboard) dust, and 3 tubes ready for action...

center holes drilled:

and just a test fitting... not perfect, but they do their jobs...

there was some sort of metal cover on the tube (found it in the trash) so i had to grind it off, and of course that makes for awesome pics! :D

Rabidsheeep,

The rocket looks OK, but I'm more impressed by that humongous cup of coffee right next to the grinder.

Man, drinking that much coffee would make me too jittery to use a grinder!

And please, remember, safety first. Always grind away from your coffee cup, or at least make sure it's wearing goggles. :D
