How much do you need? It's the main component of a product called "stump remover" for tree stumps. http://www.amazon.com/VPG-Hi-Yield-Remover%252c-Potassium-Nitrate/dp/B016P3G4XC/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1456211850&sr=8-5&keywords=potassium+nitrate

You can also find it at some gardening centers.

y not b badazz like laxus n do mercury fulminate?



Mercury is slightly more toxic than what i want to work with. Not to also mention the burn rate for HgCNO2 is 4250m/s, which is extremely fast for any type of rocket fuel use.
While KNO3 isnt technically combustible, when you add powdered sugar and heat, the mixture becomes a slow burning solid, which is very convenient for rocket fuel.

I'd probably need a license to sell rocket motors but not to make them tho

Uranium would yield better results.
Not to mention buying KNO3 has a legitimate household purpose.

I'm looking to build a homemade reusable rocket motor and I need a place that can sell Potassium nitrate in bulk. Anyone know of a place or website that has it?


okay, ima assume for just minute you really are trying to build a rocket and not a bomb......(right)
first off, ive been in rocektery and never heard of using potassium nitrate as rocket fuel.
you better off looking into hybrid fuel rocket using nitrous oixde. they can be made reusable. id try checkout exhaust manifold shops to see what grade of SS they recommend for really high temps.

id start off with sugar rockets and take up with a potery club to learn how to make ceramic thrust nozzle and move on from there.
of you can go with LOX and keroseen (1st gen ICBM fuel). but that is really dangerous.

id say go for the hybrid rocket. you can easily throttle them and they are reusable and are a pretty mature knolwedge, and NOS is alot easyer to get that potassum nitate. ya know, after timothy and all...

ive looked into hybrid rockets, and a simple steel walled tube should be good for casing. you have to work with a fuel hollow tube design, so you thrust will be more at burn out, and you will have to take into account the greater surface area when making you nitrous calculation

edit: never mind, im stupid, i read AMMONIUM nitrate, not pottasium nitrate.
try salt peter, or peter salt at the drug store. or try ebay. its common oxidizer and totaly safe.


edit, im sorry bro, its really late.

I plan on using 1.5" 1026 carbon steel piping as the motor body due to carbon steel's heat resistance, and look in one of my above posts for the videos explaining the fuel im going to make and use.
Fitting a nitrous system into the size rocket im making would be pretty hard
