    2.14" white cardboard tube?

    LOC sells an excellent paper tube that fits 54mm motors, but it's "kraft" brown color on the outside. Does anyone sell a comparable tube in white?

    A Balsa Machining or Totally Tubular T-70 or T-70H (thick wall) would work. They aren't as heavy duty as LOC tubes, though.

    I thought those were slightly different diameter. I'm looking for a 54mm MMT.

    I checked the dimensions of a CTI 54mm casing and the BT-70 size tubing; there is a 0.025" slip fit, so I imagine that they would work for a 54mm mount.
