One rule for one it seems?

It seems strange to me that Jetex stuff is apparently sold on eBay and, by all accounts, posted off to the lucky winner, without the restrictions that apparently apply to Rapiers. I have bought motors and pellets on eBay with good results.

Fuse, though, is definitely dodgy – to buy and to post – and some of the old stuff doesn't burn very well. I am told that Dr Zigmund is 'on the case' so if I hear anything I'll let you know. Meanwhile, I guard the good fuse I do have – the test is to see if it stays lit through a Jetex nozzle – and hope somebody clever comes up with an electric igniter.


This nice item appeared on eBay recently, but will the fuse (right) still work?

    A battery powered Bovie Cautery (used by surgeons to cauterize blood vessels) should work. Shorty's Basement in the US used to carry the Bovie devices. They are currently available from medical supply companies.

    I should add the Bovie Cautery could be used as an electric igniter.

    Hi out there.
    Iv`e found in the past that the cautery tool is great for 50 size motors but no good for Paa Loader, or Jet master as the probe is too short.
    Not too good for L3, and L4 motors either (these are personal findings)
