I know there are a lot of bargain hunters in the hobby rocket community, so now is your chance to take advantage of Uncle Ted and make America Great Again...for Ted. ;)

What? I don't remember getting money from you to post an ad. What do you think this is ? A place to post anything you like? I mean, you think this is the Sagitta Cantina? Oh, wait... :?

You're supposed to buy one, use it, review it and then post glowing comments and heap lavish praise about me and my little creation. You must be from Cleveland. :roll:

I keep waiting for the original size to get back in stock. :!: Not sure if the mini is big enough or the midi is too large. What size body tubes does each accommodate?

They're back in stock at Apogee but you missed our "factory seconds" offering. I just sold the remaining one of three. Maybe I'll have more foolish accidents in the future and thus generate more factory seconds.

You asked about sizes. The original or small unit will accommodate tubes from 0.53 to 3.09 inches OD. The mid-size will accommodate tubes from 1.06 to 4.24 inches and the large unit works for 1.06 to 6.187 inches.

The new Mini-Guillotine Jig range is from 0.281 to 1.414 inches OD, perfect for dudes with small tubes. :oops:

Nope, sorry ain't gonna go that route again. Someone else offered a fin jig "second" which I bought, and even though they "corrected the mistake", I can never get it to give me CDO proof results. :shock:

In your case, OCD would mean "obsessively cheap disorder". :P
