I may still decide to take some excess weight out of the nozzle ring as it's heavier than it needs to be. Then again, it doesn't really matter for the static test so I may just get the important stuff done then move onto the next piece. It would be beneficial to remove weight from the aft end of the rocket before the flight so I'm sure I'll do it before then. I'm machining the nozzle ring out of 1018 which is noticeably tougher to machine than the 12L14 that I'll be using for the divergent piece. Once you've machined 12L14 steel, all other steel seems like a chore!
