Baffle

What I'm building for my pumpkin lofter, because a 2" tube would need a lot of wadding. I cut three 2" plywoods disks and drilled a 1/8" hole in the center of each, plus 4 3/8" holes in each. I'm now gluing them onto a 2" lenght of 1/8" dowel with the 3/8" holes staggered. That way, ejection gas can still flow through, but its speed is restricted by the staggered holes and disks, and it'll cool down and not fry the chute. Pictures eventually.
