I'll bring them along, I don't plan on using them at the moment and I have the redundant pair so if anyone wants to borrow them they will be available on a first in basis unless you have a project that really needs them and you can let me know by PM if you need 1 or both and I will reserve them for you

I've been in touch with Prairie Twister rocketry to see if I can arrange to get them made here.

Big question to everyone - what price are you willing to pay for the kit that includes the cable cutter, o rings, wash bottle, pipe cleaner, and measuring vial?

Cheers

Yep, that's correct.

I'd be keen to buy a couple but I'd only be after the cable cutters, I've got plenty of the other components. I guess the best answer would be that I'd like to pay less than what Archetype charges. Otherwise it'd just make more sense to buy from them, right?

Confirmed, I've seen video of this as well as seen them in use earlier in the year by Strud on a couple hybrid launches. That said "the chomper" is 2-3x larger than the Archetype cable cutter which makes sense given they're being used to cut through a hybrid fill line instead of a thin zip tie.

I would purchase for a redundant one if they were available.
