What's the appropriate gift for an 80th anniversary? Let's look it up.
1st, paper; 2nd, cotton; 3rd, leather... 10th, tin... 25th, silver... 50th, gold... ah, here it is:
80th, APCP.
Excellent!

Bob,
I have this image of handing out anniversary rings to the party goers...
rings made of APCP, and a few other useful materials...
(call it an artistic timeline, or just a really bad idea...)

Would these "rings made of APCP" weigh 62.5 grams or less?

62.5 grams is a damn big ring, isn't it?

That's according to BATFE.

that would be a ring that goes far below the realms of "bling-bling."

But it would be legal, at least in the sense of rocketry marketeers, maybe not the ATF.

Darrell,
such a ring sounds like a wonderful summer project. Building the molds, CAREFULLY carving the rough products, adding the trim...
I'm figuring that the ring would be about 10 cubic centimeters. That's a two fingered ring. I'll go and scratch up some quick designs for such rings...
BTW, can anybody give me the actual density for APCP?
Bob
