I would like to thank all of those who have shown interest in and used the the Towerlauncher product. This year I have decided to focus primarily on our engineering work at Caztek, Inc. All of the products shown on this website will continue to be available to the ameteur rocketeers on a custom order basis. Please visit our main site at www.caztek.com to contact me. We offer a full array of design and engineering services for a variety of customers in the aerospace, medical and industrial fields including CAD modeling in solidWorks and Pro Engineer as well as finite elment analysis. We also excel at cnc machining of short run, close tolerance work.

CAZTEK Inc. introduces CAD design services and CNC machining capabilities to the rocketry field. "Our specialty is designing and fabricating custom rocketry components! We hope to bridge the gap between the rocketeer and professional manufacturing capabilities." —C. Sienkiewicz, President. With this announcement comes the delivery of the first custom rocket motor case for an amateur rocketeer in MN. The case is destined for an Ammonimum Nitrate fuel load and features a heavy wall 6061 aluminum extrusion, machined for spiral retaining rings.

CAZTEK Inc. announces that their flagship product, the towerlaunch pad, is now Hypertek hybrid compatible. With the addition of a hybrid crossplate, the tower can now accomodate hybrid motor fill tubes with ease. The adjustable nature of the standard TL standoff lends itself well to the addition of the hybrid crossplate. Adjustment is quick and easy.

Rocketeer feedback has led to several design improvements of the CAZTEK Towerlauncher. The baseplate can now tilt to a horizontal position without the removal of the lockdown wing bolts. This facilitates easier loading when the tower is pre-set for a specific diameter rocket.
