Today i tryed my 1st splices i used 1 litre bottles as this was my 1st attempt i used 2 glues Titebond a american polyurethane adhesive and sikaflex 11 FC as the Titebond glue was very runny i followed a tutorial on aircommand rockets where George used polyfilla as a thickening agent it worked very well made the glue much easier to work with i decided to try 2 splicing techniques a symmetrical splice with 2 glues and a asymmetric splice with 2 glues i will leave these for a week to dry fully then pressure test next weekend.

  1. Very good Dan, you have done the same thing as we are in my group are going to try except we are using 2l bottles and a shrunk 3l as a sleeve :). Keep it up :)
