    People are always needing gauntlet rockets it seems, so I bet plenty will be interested in this.

    yeah, the cone is proving to be a pain(drilling the sideways holes) but, the dremel is the best tool in my toolbox lol. I'll get it. these won't be 100% accurate, but I think I can get them pretty close. Been working with the dremel for a few hours today(offday woohoo!) and I think I am getting close to the look. pics coming tonight

    Just for reference, I used a plum bob (the heavy metal piece you hang from a string and use gravity to hang it) from the local discount hardware store for 2$ to make my first rocket tip. If your making a custom sometimes they come with pretty cool designs in therem.

    thanks for the tip brother, I actually have one in the garage. I'll have to try that, the screw in tip should work well for the little extended tip piece at the end too
