DescriptionApollo Program: Saturn V Engine Duct Resilient Mount. An aluminum and high temperature stainless steel resilient mount for 2" ducting manufactured by Robintech Inc. of Burbank, California under NASA Contract No. NAS7-101 for Douglas Aircraft Company and bearing a George C. Marshall Space Flight Center identification label with a date of April 1967. It measures 5" x 4.25" x 1.25" and the unit has part numbers and inspection stamps including a NASA triangular hand stamp. An opportunity to own a part of this venerable rocket series that launched all nine manned missions to the moon. Excellent condition.
Because of the extraordinary pressures and temperatures which the powerful Rocketdyne F-1 engine developed, all thrust-related components would move, expanding and contracting during launch as temperatures ranged from cryogenic through 4700°F. Multiple ways to hold ducting were tried early in the space program with this stainless steel mesh proving very effective; it allowed expansion of bellowed assemblies and would not "freeze and grab" during engine operation.

We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.View More Testimonials
