    I built this rack three weeks ago using a full sheet of 12mm (2440mm x 1220mm) OSB and 3 x steel gabion mesh sheets (400mm x 1000mm) custom made in Germany by for the sole purpose of firing all my Sale Day rockets and those I had from other displays this BFN.
    In addition all joints are hot glued and brass screwed ... in short it is super strong and is best carried by two people. All in, it cost around £100 to make.

    It has three sections (keep the fire separate between cues) to easily hold 24 x Royal Party Special Rockets, 24 x Magnum Ultra Gold Brocade Rockets, 12 x Primed Pyrotechnic Silver Strobe and 12 x Primed Pyrotechnic Gold Brocade, all which will be fired during my display at Ashton Athletic Football Club ... tickets available; lol! couldn't resist a plug.

    There are actually 160 (50mm x 50mm) mesh square if the need arises to recreate a War Hawk rocket experiment.

    The problem is it fills the garage and therefore this rack needs a new home ... seriously after a single use on Nov 5th, it is FREE for anyone who wishes to come and collect it. Please just contact me via the forum and arrange a date and it is yours.

    It will be a shame to see it leave, and I hope someone else will use it for its primary purpose but should you be looking to build your own barbecue, these mesh sheets just need some bricks and you have a summer of outdoor cooking.

    So nice of you Simon Weir (sw) :)

    If you like give me the details of the event and I can add it to the events list. I added my two big displays yesterday to that. In fact I might do a thread asking if anyone wants me to put there event on our web site ? Thats if you're trying to attract more people ? I presume so if ticketed.

    I think I've worked out how your pet Chinchilla escaped, Simon.

    Simon, before you let your rocket rack go to a new home, I challenge you to do the following....
    Stick an advert on ebay for a almost priceless antique harpsichord, and then, when it sells for thousands, deliver the rocket rack with multiple camera-men capturing the look on the face of the person receiving it!

    Wives are the same the world over ... Pimp you handsome young man (pimp), you can imagine the disapproving look I received after I built it, hence the need to give it a new home.
