 Do they still make those things? I had a "lil' Helcat" model back in
the sixties. It never provided a whole lot of thrust but it was long
burning. I think that the Jetexes were the first reloadable hobby
rocket motors. I used the Jetex fuse to give Estes ignitors a little
boost in biger motors years befor there were copperheads or
flashbulbs.

It's "again" rather than "still," but yes, I bought one just a few
months ago, and I see them in stock in a couple of the hobby shops I
visit frequently.  A starter set will run around $20, and the fuel,
wick, and seal washers are available separately as well.  I gather the
company that makes them is also introducing a couple larger sizes in the
foreseeable future, possibly pretty soon, and is interested in obtaining
NAR certification of the motors/fuel.
