Question by Earstealer: Where can I get long 1/2″ diameter cardboard tubing?
It is for building model rockets. I think the prices they are charging at the hobby stores and online are totally out of hand.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Answer by Mike1942f
First of all, if you check, I think you will find it is bigger than that (at least O.D.)
Second – can you think of any other use for small diameter cardboard tubing?
I can’t, so the stuff is custom made for rocket building.
If you want you can get a wooden dowel and roll paper around it to desired thickness, gluing along the way (spray glue works good) and then gluing the final edge. Again, check the size of the motors, etc. before buying a 1/2″ dowel – may be 5/8″
What do you think? Answer below!
