Q: Modify LOC Graduator to add PayLoad

Post by Mark Schweize » Sun, 09 May 1999 04:00:00



Has anyone anyone managed to add a payload section to the LOC
Graduator?  If so, any construction details would be greatly
appreciated.

Also, if anyone could supply me with the dimensions and distributed
weight specs for the LOC Graduator, I could simulate the effects of
adding a payload section.

Thanks in advance for any input,

Mark

Easy: Buy a piece of LOC tubing (2.63") and a LOC bulkhead for same. Cut the
piece to whatever size payload bay you want, epoxy the ring and nut into the
bulkhead, and you're in business.

A Grad stock is 2.63" x 39.5" and built weight can be 17-19 oz. Of course if
you add the payload bay, increase the length and weight by whatever you chose.
