Beach Shoot #12 - Chrysanthemum #6 Ground Spinner

Date: 2003-11-21


Built like a hummer from an off-cut of 19 mm ID tube, about 50 mm long. End plugs of wax treated cat litter, 4 mm spin vent and case wall treated with waterglass.

Propellant of Chrysanthemum #6 composition. Fused with blackmatch and meal-NC paste. The spin vent was at one end of the case, not in the middle like a traditional hummer.


Slow spin up.

Not all that impressive of an effect.

I guess the Ti/meal composition has ruined my love of charcoal effect.
