Talking Best Guess Here.

I needed to know the same a while ago. I looked at some cardstock my wife was making B-day cards out of and the only info I could see was the number 110. I know it cannot be .110
so it must be .0110 which seems about right as a best guess .

Different grades of paper may have different basic sizes.



That paper is called "index", and it's base size sheet is 25.5" x 30.5". So, 500 sheets of this is a ream, and it weighs 110 pounds.

Talking Card stock vs. fiber board

Hence, its "weight" (or thickness, if you prefer) is 110 lbs.

I *did* figure out that Carl's 2-ply(?) fiber rings are 1/20" (0.05") thick, which is *way* heavier than 110 lb. card stock.

I may have to slip down to Lowe's and get that $30 dial caliper next week, after all.


Cheers,

Jay, I just stopped at Menards a couple days ago and picked up a really nice digital caliper for just this sort of activity...only $24, and a great little tool.

Dunno if Menards is out there by you, but if so, a nice price on a great device.

For medium sized rockets, I make transitions out of lightweight cardstock - like a manilla folder. After gluing up and attaching to project I will fill in with wood filler. Depending on whether it needs any structural strength, after it is affixed to the project, I will sometimes cover it with .75 oz Fiberglass and Epoxy. You can do the FG lamination before assembly, too. Gooped on Kilz primer can cover any finishing sins.

For HPR, I use 1/64 ply, built over underlying stringers, then always FG/Epoxy covering.

Harbor Freight has digital calipers for around 20 bucks. They also ship. WWW,Haborfreight.com. They sell all kinds of stuff. And for the light weight thingss I do the tools last forever. Chief nukemmcssret
