I also found that the "Rocket New & New Products" had a review of the lastest FlisKits............

It wasn't long ago that we had some TRF members in another issue of SR.........

ya know, I look through the WHOLE thing, but it took Kathy to notice the cover photo LOL

I need to get more Manufacts submitted too.

Also, you may not be aware, Sport Rocketry will be going Black & White for the next few issues...

Haven't had a chance to read it all, but hope too soon

I think All thread rods are just rods that have threads running down their whole length.

I haven't received the issue yet, nor have I seen the picture, but I have seen some who use all thread sticking out of the aft end as motor retention. Put the motor in, and it is held in by threading a nut and washer over the exposed all thread.

Randy,

All-Thread is used on L3 sized birds to provide additional strength to the model. It locks the framework together, which assists with ease of the assembly. It also distributes the thrust of the motor evenly up through the frame rather than only on the rear plate. Moreover, it provides an anchor point to the upper bulkhead, where the shockcord attaches. With the added weight a Level 3 projects has, you cannot mearly glue the bulkhead to the bodytube as it could be ripped right out upon ejection. For this reason, the bulkhead is attached to the very top part of the All-thread so it is fully supported.

I use them on all my Level 3 projects as it provides me with better piece of mind on the structural integrity of the model. I also make sure I design my L3 rockets with an internal framework structure from bottom to top. This does not mean all thread is used throughout the rocket, but rather the rocket is designed so it supports itself internally, using the outer body tube just as a skin.

Allthread is a hardware item comes in many sizess and materials. Brass, bronze and stainless steel in 00/90" (diameter/threads per inch) to 3/4-9", in plated steel #2/56" to 3/4-9". Nylon, Delron and ceramic composite materals 2/56" to 1/2-13". Allthread rods are threaded the complete length of the rod.

Nice ad for Squirrel Works in this issue as well. Dunno if it's been in there before, but I noticed this one.

Oh, that makes sense...... It makes the fin can / aft section more rigid.......

My guess would be to save money......... Wasn't that an issue with Extreme Rocketry?

Saturday, but I always get them about a week earlier because of our ad. My first copy is my invoice copy.

Astronboy: Yea, it's a cost issue. Putting out a periodical in *any* event is expensive. *color* is outrageous...
