First Materials for Chimera arrive in Post
Great excitement. The first materials for the Chimera bench test motor, B0, arrived in the post on Friday. The project team are now the proud owners of two 600mm lengths of 38mm 6082 alloy type T6 temper Aluminium motor tube (3.2mm walls) and two solid Aluminium rod lengths 1.5inch and 2inch round, for making the end enclosures. This material was found at low cost on eBay, and appears to be of really good quality.
