Charts of common BP grainsizes for various uses and the grain sizes of the FG and FA commercial powders both in mesh and mm, rough table for mesh/mircon/etc, table of PSI/kPa for hydralic presses and common pressures that are called for in whistle and mabey BP comps, some basic rule of thumb suggestions for lift of various sizes of spherical/canister shells and starmines (Like the "1oz of 2Fa per lb." guideline.), common unit conversions, like inches/cm/mm, the whole which diameter tube corresponds to calling it a xlb rocket/fountain, and their common lengths, common diameter/lengths for other fireworks and mortors of various sizes, actual common shell diameters before wrapping and the mortors they fire from, mabey recommended temperature ranges to cook your charcoal too, common hardware store ID/Wall/OD of HDPE pipe and common price range? Common carrier/burst ratios? General burst ammount for shells What concentration of what solvent is most commonly used for what composition genre (glitter/charcoal streamers/perchlorate metallic fueled color stars/etc). Common chemical incompatibilitys. some common oxidizer and fuel properties, flame coloring species (created through the reactions usually.), Chlorine donors and the percent of chlorine by weight (still need a few more),
I'll edit in suggestions. Bold faced are already found and posted, plain text is everything else. If having all the possible things to include in a vertical list unstead of separated with commas is preferred ill change it, just tell me.
(THE INFO, if its a chart or something, i suggest just puting "chart" or "table," because it may be hard to import it into the forum. Though code tags might work if the table was made with PRE tags on the site originally. If its a short bit of text, just copy/paste it with quote tags i guess.
(source of info, a HTML link for instance, or the ref needed to find the book, author, title, publisher, etc)
I'm sure someone else has thought of something like this before, so i don't want to steal credit or anything if that is the case. Just making that clear.
I'll give 2 examples:
