    Tyreburster help...

    Hi all
    Long time since i posted anything but should be posting a bit more in the near future... busy busy.
    Can anyone supply the sizes for the T shaped brass detonator housing that is inside the Tyreburster?
    Height, Width etc.

    Thought i'd ask if anyone had a spare housing but i guess i know the answer to that

    I have made a copy of the donut charge that is inside.
    I made up a mould so if anyone needs a plaster copy get in touch (i'll post some pictures of the finished copy soon)

    Here is a Picture of the copy charge in place with correct green cloth tape around it.

    All the best
    And thanks for any help

    I am a little late but here goes. The weight without detonators is 8 gram. The height of the spring housing is 18,2mm, the outside diameter of the spring housing is 14,4mm, the outside diameter of the detonator pockets is 9,5mm and distance between the detonator pockets is 22mm. The slots for the shear wire are 1,6mm wide and the height is 11.8mm.

    I would like to see a photo of the copy.

    Okay I am impressed. How much do you charge for one?

    Old post but am wondering if you know of a source for an inert Tyreburster or a good replica? Or pieces to make same?

    This is on eBay - not sure if it’s the right thing or not
