    Can I get the diameter of the left Gauntlet rocket body. I think I may have found something that could yeild several, for cheap.
    Unless it's too small.

    The true dimensions are subject to opinion, but some general measurements are 1" tall for the body, 1-3/8" tall for the tip, and a little over 7" in total length. Remember, these are not official measurements, but approximate figures.

    BF, are those measurements the diameter to the edge of the tube or the raised ridges? Hope that makes sense.

    Squeet, what was the item, out of interest?

    I was doing some cleaning of my little work shop yesterday when I realized the "Swifer" (sp?) I was using had the ridges and looks "clean", plus it metal so lots of possibilities there, bnut alas the diameter is like 1/2 inch so.....
    I may use it for something else though. That's the joy of doing a custom

    One inch is the average height of the center (ridged) portion of the body. Remember though, this is not a concrete meausrement, but it is pretty consistent with all of the ones I've had and/or seen.

    Well, I took the damn thing apart and did a "what if " check with my gauntlet and it looks a bit small. In proportion to the big picture, looking at it from a far, it's not bad, but just not right you know?
