Just when I thought I was working on a large motor, I saw this truck on the freeway hauling a large number of Titan strap-on booster motors. OK, fine! Maybe this is just a sprinkler system for a new industrial building. It's all in how you use them...

SStS Motor Casing
I have purchased a piece of tube to fabricate a new motor casing for the Sugar Shot to Space DSS effort. The DSS motor and test setup were among the finest I've ever seen, it's a shame that the motor failed but the team has a good idea of the failure mode and how to avoid it. Here is the tube before being cut to length and drilled for the nozzle and bulkhead.
