I'm thinking about using shear pins in an upcoming two stage project to ensure the connection between the stages...I may as well go ahead and use them for nosecone retention, too w/dual deployment. I know the concept of them, but could someone give me a run thru on how to do them? I originally just thought small nails would work, but when I helped out Tom Binford with his Nike Smoke @ O-Berg last year, I noticed that they were the size of small nails, but he used a screwdriver to put them in, so I assumed they were small screws. I wasn't paying attention in full detail, though, so I'm not sure exactly how it was done. They may have been nylon screws, too. At any rate, could someone give me a walk thru on this?
