Where can I get a bung?
« on: 18/07/2010 13:05:05 »
Where can I get a rubber-bung that can enable me to fullfill this experiment? http://www.thenakedscientists.com/HTML/content/kitchenscience/exp/water-rockets/

As soon as possible, and how much will it cost?
Thanks

From that page
"If you can't get a rubber bung you can make one out of a wine bottle cork"

I suppose you could always whittle something out of a bit of wood and use chewing gum to help seal it. Or, if you carve some grooves round it, you could fill them with rubber bands to form sort of O-ring seals. 



BTW BC,

Can you bung me a few quid till Friday?

bottle rocket kit,
more expensive than a bung/cork but does come with a tube which lowers the odds of you getting hit or soaked,
 and will launch from a flat surface (no launch stand required).

Where do you live?  If home brewing is legal where you are, home brew shops usually carry a variety of bungs.  They tend to cost in the range of 1-3 USD.

MUTR products are usually very competitively priced, but not their bottle launcher stand (£25).
