At first glance of this tool it draws the half raised eyebrow look. After learning how to use it, you wonder how you ever got along without it. You'll get perfect markings every time. This an asset to every rocket builders tool box. (Posted on 9/13/13)
This marking guide will make the building process of your rockets a lot smoother and you will notice an increase in the altitude of your rocket's flights. Is is just a good buy all around. I would highly recommend this purchase! (Posted on 2/11/13)
The tube marking guide makes it a whole lot easier to get your rockets just perfect. It is a great investment for anyone who sees themselves in the hobby for years down the road.I wish I had made this purchase sooner than I did! (Posted on 1/3/13)
I have used the marking and measuring guide now on two kits. Working with a group of boys, having the tool makes marking the tubes a breeze. I have used it yet on building scratch rockets, but I am looking forward to it. The tool is simple, but well thought out. While I haven't used the fin slot yet, I can't comment on it usefulness. I use a fin alignment tool for that part of assembly.
I decided to take the plunge and purchase some of the various guides stocked by Estes. This marking guide is great for measuring and marking on a range of tubes, and lets face it results in much straighter lines than the old doorframe method. Very happy with these and a steel at the price. Now I just need one to fit a 4" tube. (Posted on 4/12/12)
