A while ago I was on the TRF chat when midpwr guy apporoached me and told me he was making cases.

I recieved the cases in the mail promptly after talking to keith. A 38mm 10" case and a 29mm case, which was about 14" They looked very good, the nozzles were high quality graphite and both the nozzle and forward bulkhead were stepped for the liner to sit into. The Bulkheads were also tapped. I drilled out the nozzle a little, and fired a load in the 38 case. It worked very well, except the nozzle cracked. It was deemed to be faulty graphite, and Keith quickly sent me a new nozzle.

The 29 case is really impressive here, the motor was very quick burning and the rocket that launched really went. This is a serious case, that packs a real punch.

Mid also makes slimline retainer clones. If anyone needs some machining ddone....he's your man.

I got some really nice 24mm retainers from him a while back. I'm putting one on my new Big Daddy. I may have to put one on Shrox's SHX-15B. The retainers are very nicely machined and polished.... They're only going on the "nice" rockets.
