Whee! I'm only a bit excited about my new 38/240-480 casing set, so I got all of my casings (24, 29, and 38:)) out and took a picture of them, which is attached.

So, if your casings are available, line 'em up and snap a pic!

Mmm....motor casings...:D:D:D

Nice, I hope to see more home made casings. After all, the COTS ones can be seen on vendors' sites.

now that the thread is active again... :)

I am older than the thread and older than a lot of others...

I actually took this photo to show the range of motor sizes earlier this year, so please disregard the Estes motors on the right side...

While this is still active, there was a request 14 years ago for more homemade hardware.

I need to come up with a better storage solution. I thought a gun case would work good. But it filled up to fast in the last year. This is the 38mm and 54mm. 24mm and 29mm is in another bin.

Whats your storage? I'm not a huge fan of the tube that CTI come in. But might go back to that and keep them all in a bin.0815181342_HDR.jpg

I don't use any CTI (used to, but decided to stick with just one type). Anyway, since day one with Dr Rocket/Aerotech reloadable cases, the first thing I did was buy 29, 38, and 54 PML phenolic airframe tubing in 36" lengths (made the inner ones a bit shorter to fit), glued a centering ring in the bottom of each tube, and made a cap with a piece of coupler tube, a 1" long piece of airframe, and another centering ring. They all fit into each other and protect the casings from damage and dust. I keep the closures, seals, and other things in a parts case (Stanley, HarborFreight). I have two storage tubes (29/38/54 each) that hold all my motor cases (I probably need to add one more 29/38mm case for some spares I have now). I can grab one tube or both and have all the cases with me protected.
