This link by way of Roy this morning…

Our gear was built from whatever consumer or industrial stuff we could obtain. When I needed a perforated spherical stainless steel shell for our electron measuring probe I drilled a huge number of holes in the bowls of two soup ladles and joined them together. For a telescoping arm needed to move the probe several feet from the rocket after it got above most of the atmosphere I used a magician’s “appearing cane” powered by a silly looking coil spring slipped around it.
