Anyway.. has there or is there any good referances on 'how to' and what to use and stuff like that to help a guy at least get started on this project. Please and thank you...

    Re: Any how to do a jet pack instrustions?

    The way I did mine was I started with Mark Bradley's layout at http://www.bradleyfett.com/jet pack.htm Then start cutting and assembling your pieces. For all the flat parts I used sentra, and for all the rest I used things like: roller hockey balls and Renuzit air-fresheners(thruster cones), four sizes of PVC pipes, PVC reduction fittings, resin cast from a paper cone cup(missile tip), epoxy putty cast onto the bottom of a liter bottle of wine(top of side fuel tanks), and the funnel cone and gopher poison cone that were on Bradley's page. Obi-Wan's Jedi Academy has some good pics on assembly at http://66.33.77.175/fett_jet pack1.html Send me a PM if you need any more help.

    I found mine at Home Depot next to all the bug spray and insecticides. I forget the brand name, but it was yellow.

    They sell them individually at the friendly neighborhood WalMart.

    the gopher poison cone that I bought at wallyworld boasts 50% more gopher poison. does that mean I got the wrong one?

    I don't think I've seen The Sniffer dig up a thread this old.

    I find it funny that when someone searches something up and leaves a post to it, they still get picked on, where as if they just made a thread they'd be told to use the search feature.
