So it's super nice out today and had to have a play with it all

1st this really does support 100KG. I'm currently 91Kg, it hurt my ass but i was able to sit stable and enjoy a drink in the sun (not normaly looking this rough, been working on house and garden).

1st mod, lose the plastic. Less to burn on liftoff

Blast plate has arrived, handle i was able to rip off there and then. This will get cut on the guillotine at work so all them holes are gone.

Testing it' fit and cover, looks good.

Let's measure and see what we can mod and mount options.

So now the above section has been removed time to see what option is on offer.

Still unsure how i want to do this. The latter gives me more rail which is good! I'm thinking i could get a steel plate cut and drilled to bolt on the stand then 3 bolts along the length to hold the rail on.

Blast plate i really like, it's very very well made.

Penny washer
M6 wing nut

That holds the blast plate on. Rail is held with the built in clamp and a bit of 25mm thick MDF. Hold my 90KG no problem.

Local camping shop had a peg start set. Rubber mallet, peg puller and 6 8" metal pegs for £5. Grabbed one so I can pin this down.

How much rail do you have left for launch with your current setup?

Thanks

Hey, I just wanted to say thank you for the idea of a jawstand for a base. It is absolutely perfect! I haven't been in model rocketry in about 20 years and wanted to start with something good, which I seen this post about using a jaw stand.

I have done a few mod's to mine. But I have two different blast shields that I can use for it and I dont think any rocket will burn a hole in these plates for many years to come. I can use normal rail, mini rail, and soon to be launch rods.

Anywho enough bad English and more Rocket Porn...

Very nice setup. I just picked mine up and was thinking along the same lines as you for an "all-in-on" unit.
May i ask where you got the "Mini" rail from?

Thanks
Ed

I am pretty sure it was this... http://www.mcmaster.com/#5537T117

Product Detail
Aluminum Metric T-Slotted Framing System, Two-Slot Single Inline, 20 mm Solid Extrusion

I also picked up the 1010 rail at the same time from the same place... also the two-slot style.
The rails showed up nearly next day. I was shocked.

Found it on Ebay at the 80/20 storefront it is the 20 series ,, I will post later today on my progress.
What is that your using as a blast shield and what are the bolts attached to?

I am another one who read this old thread. At Menards last week I found one clearance for \$64. Now I need to get some kind of rocket ready.
