Up for the auction I have 2 star pumps from California Pyro.

1/2" Cavity Star pump with a hole drilled through. I do not have the pin for it, a tooth pick or a piece of a bamboo skewer will work well.

Cavity stars are traditionally pumped from a charcoal streamer comp and dried. The cavity is filled with a bright, contrasting color. The dried comet is pasted in similar to a crosette. The effect is a long duration color changing comet, good for candles and cylinder shells.

Also up for auction is a 1/4" star pump. This is good for testing small amounts of stars for a small mine or rocket heading. If you are patient, you could certainly pump hundreds of microstars for a shell.

Free shipping to the lower 48 US.

**Addition to Pumps**

 

If you agree:  Nate, send them first class to me and I will face them, shine them and get the scratches out plus make a brass pin for the one pump and add a brass "tit" to the cavity pump if the winner wants, for crossettes.  I will cover shipping to the winner CONUS via first class mail.

Dag is extremely generous. He's done so much for me already. There's no way I'll ever be able to repay him for everything. Thanks again Dag.

Stop being so gushy BB!!!   :P

 

Seriously, your efforts spilled over to Fireworking and the proceeds chopped off a full 1/4 of our debt!!!!  I cant wait to get this going over there and see what they come with as well.  I felt bad last time that we couldn't let all the people over here  involved too so I started here.

$25 plus shipping.
Dagabu, your offer for the value add is enough that any bidder should feel some hella guilt if they let you fork out shipping ontop of it.

No guilt at all VA, my pleasure!  I got some goodies I am throwing in as well.  I know a guy that makes 3/4" and 1" pumps as well, he is making a few this weekend, once I get the pumps from Nater, we might get a few more bids on this package!
