    Broccoli chicken with oyster sauce and jasmine rice. I also mixed in a bit of sriracha to give it some kick. Drank a couple of IPAs while consuming it last night.

    I am! I was thinking of asking you since you mentioned your country being the same with mine regarding being a lawyer. What a coincidence!

    It says “Just a small town girl” on your profile, that’s why I assumed you might be from mine.
    Because I’m from the one between your city and Istanbul, which is like a baby Izmir in some ways.

    Model rocket engine propellant punches and tampers I made for a friend.
    20201208_110113.jpg Either an arbor press or a hammer will provide the forces required to assemble the engines.
    Blue indicates the stainless steel nozzle form sample.
    Brass was chosen as an alternative to the more difficult to machine stainless because of spark concerns.
    Can't have an engine go hot on the bench in a pile of rocket fuel :p


    20201208_110159.jpg
    Blue are the engine tubes, while red are the tampers

    20201208_110246.jpg

    Brass tamper slid onto the stainless sample.

    The tampers have a 1/8 inch hole drilled to 1.5 inches deep, which can be tricky in common yellow brass.

    The project was to make nozzle pins for different sized engine charges. Interchangeable pins will be made of brass to allow for differing lengths which will also require tapers so they release easily.
    The pins are for the initial fast burn for liftoff thrust which later slows to a sustained lower thrust after gravity has been initially overcome.
    Common kitty litter made into a paste is used at the nozzle end and the upper end of the cardboard tubes to retain the fuel charge.

    20201215_142112.jpg Print in frame cost a whopping $3 at a church resale shop.
    It was chosen for the plain styled frame with glass.
    The pastel blue frame was painted black to match the theme of the $9.99 poster bought at a Spencer's Gifts outlet in a local mall.

    20201215_152121.jpg
    The original matted print was stapled in place, so I opted to retain it with lathing, #4 wood screws and a slight amount of hot glue to add slight pressure to the glass. The screws added another $4.99 to the bill of materials.
    It ain't real pretty, but very strong.

    I found it amusing that Marilyn has a tat that reads RIP JFK.
    Most unfamiliar with the chains of events from that era may not get the irony of that :p

    I have about 6 hours and $19.05 for the entire project just because I thought it was cool :cool:

    I guess I must be in the age group that remembers these events. Marilyn Monroe died almost 16 months before JFK.
