Gus,Thanks for posting the pictures of the Centuri LAI-50. I bought my first rockets and gear from Centuri in 1967. My much used LAI-50 was in a wooden telescope box stolen out of a friend's storage unit back in 1995. Also in the box was my Mantis launcher, bunch of Apogee Blackshaft tubing, launch rods, and other gear.
The attached picture was from Winter 1967 in a field near my house in Central Ohio. Own designed model from the Centuri parts assortment.

Chas

I also have a LIA-77 that I stained brown. Don't recall if I have the blast deflector anymore.

Just like SmoKING, which has 'king' in the word....it must be partially good.

People are such safety/enviro mamby-pambys nowadays....No asbestos this, no DDT that, no Lead in fuel, get rid of all DECENT pesticides, lower VOC content in paint, gotta have a car safety seat for this, yadda yadda....
Makes me literally want to PUKE with the sissy/nanny state that has been created at an accelerated pace over the last 20 years.
Disgusting.

I will continue to use VOC laden paints and whatever else I darned well please no matter what any enviro-whackos (ALL environmentalists) think.


This actually explains a lot

Yeah, it does say a LOT.

Chas,

Glad you liked it. I bought this one several years ago on Ebay. I grew up in Phoenix so most of what I had was Centuri. After my LIA-50 wore out I replaced it with a wood board with a hole drilled in the middle to hold the launch rod. I punched a hole in a piece of asbestos and slid it down over the launch rod. Worked great and it was easy to strap to the rack on the back of my Schwinn.

The shipping weight was one pound more, 4 pounds for the LIA-100 vs 3 pounds for the LIA-77. I had plans for the LIA-100, but I cannot find them now.


Carl,
I have the plans for the Centuri LIA-100 , and I still have my LIA-100.

Thanks for the link . . .

I have the instructions but, when he mentioned "plans", I was hoping for something more like a set of templates.
