A HUGE thank you to my friend Shane for stepping in and helping me with overnight CAD while I was overwhelmed and struggling and seriously needed to just sleep. Y’all should give him a follow, he is a very cool rocket kid! https://twitter.com/Shanepc14

Alternatively, a good friend of mine wanted to build this and shaved $14 off the BOM still ordering from McMaster. I can’t vouch since it’s not what I built specifically but I’m fairly certain it’ll be exactly the same:
1 1 Pack of 360 12205T79 Natural Rubber Bands Size 73, 3/8″ Wide x 3″ Long
2 2 Each 7297K12 Plastic Miter Gear 48 Pitch, 24 Teeth
3 2 Each 8978K113 Rigid Aluminum Tubing 3/16″ OD, 0.022″ Wall Thickness, 490 PSI Maximum Pressure, 3′ Long
4 2 Each 6432K19 Set Screw Shaft Collar for 3/16″ Diameter, Zinc-Plated 1215 Carbon Steel
5 6 Each 57155K374 Stainless Steel Ball Bearing Precision, Shielded, NO. R3-2Z, 50000 rpm Maximum Speed
6 2 Each 1257K55 Rotary Shaft 303 Stainless Steel, 3/16″ Diameter, 24″ Long
