Title: Nose Cone Clay
Post by: Tonyfr on July 23, 2015, 06:44:35 PM
I finally got around to building my Astron Sprint XL for NARAM.  I put the clay provided in the nose cone for weight. I then got too clever for my own good.  I thought "these clay globs always dry and fall down after a few years and then rattle.  I will put some glue in the nose cone to hold it in place."  I put model glue in the nose cone and suspended it so it would dry around the edge of the clay.  I checked on it the next night and the glue melted the nose cone.   :o

What clay should I use in my replacement nose cone?  My wife offered up some resin clay but I do not want to have the same issue.

Thanks,
Tony

Found a topic thread on rocketry forum regarding the topic.  Ended up using Sculpy stuff.
