    Did the same thing with a cheap cordless screwdriver. I found a drill chuck with a 1/4” hex shank that fit the spindle. Agreed, the lighter tool the better with small taps.

    Thanks for sharing!

    We had a local outfit try and sell us one, seemed like a lot of hype. They did not have it running and did not have the oven.

    Just to add to what others have said. Filling the inside of the tube will help a bunch. I would turn a tight fitting brass slug in the end of the tube. You could also add a center in that slug and...

    Wow, no crash test dummy? I think i would have strapped 300 lb's of steel into the harness and launching it before trying it myself.
