I picked this up recently but can't find pictures of a similar motor.
The spring clips are absolutely identical to other Jetex models so I presume it's one of theirs?
Any information gratefully received.

I've deleted the duplicate post, sorry but not very familiar with the Jetex motors above the 35 and 50 so can't help identify it. Thanks for posting, Howard

This is not one I've seen either. Is it the size of a Jetex 50 or 100? Sorta look like a home build, or some prototype made by the LSARA - the double springs point to its use in a rocket. Mike Ingram made some bespoke motors for his helicopters in the 1950's, but not, I think, like this one.

Have you any info as to where it came from? You say "you picked it up", but from where? That could give us a clue. Interesting ... :whistle:

I'll get Andy to give an opinion. :dry:

Hello Roger,
I bought a mixed lot of vintage RC equipment and to my surprise this was included. I'll ask the seller but doubt he'll know much about it.
The bore is 3/4" but as I haven't been able to find the dimensions of the various fuel pellets I can't equate this to a model.
Yes it's been suggested this is home made using some Jetex parts and I certainly can't rule that out. As a model engineer I could certainly make this, but it's a very neat job.
