I Made an Aluminum Wrist Rocket
« on: Mar 17, 2019, 01:25 PM »
Hey gang!

Just wanted show a project I made a few months back. A clan member of asked if I could make a wrist rocket on my CNC machines.

So I ducked into my CAD software and worked up the design of the digital model. Not pictured is the little spacer block that'll attach the gauntlet to the rocket.


I drilled the hole pattern in the front of the rocket on our mill, and completely forgot to take any pictures of the process. So I turned the rear section of the rocket on our lathe, flipped it over and turned the front section.


The last thing to do was mill the slots running along the mid section of the rocket's body. This was filmed with an actual potato, a design which I'll be patenting next month.

And this is the flare "in the white", without any sort of paint or weathering on it. Overall it was neat little project with was a lot of fun to do. I certainly enjoyed the project and I hope my clan mate enjoyed his new prop!

Vod this is fantastic work,  I know most of the actual work was done on your CNC but you did create the CAD files to do.   :like:

Thanks Vode!

This was a good time, and I just love taking on these little projects. It lets me learn a lot outside of my normal work and do some fun projects that other really love.
