    Does wicking a cardboard tube with CA add any strength?

    When I first got back into model rocketry as an adult (BAR 1.0) I ended up launching with a large club in Southern California's high desert. My precious rockets were being ground down and destoyed by the harsh dry lake bed conditions. I started laminating my tubes and balsa with 0.75 oz...

    Any tips on slotting tubes?

    What did you do rocket wise today?

    Wow! I've been gone for awhile and can't believe this thread is still going. Sadly, I only looked at rockets online today. [emoji20] I need to get out to my workshop and dust off a rocket or two.

    Well that's what had... and can't find now. There is a new Color Change Wood Filler and Probond Wood Filler. Elmer's dosn't even have the old CWF listed anymore. :( Hoping to learn if either of the new ones are similar. Jerome
