I'm looking for some tubes for my next two birds of the Sandman series. I need three of each of

24mm tube, heavy wall, foil lined if possible, at least 30" long, prefer 34-36", will take up to 48".

29mm tube, same as above.

The 24mm is the harder part. The good, heavy tube I can find is 24" long.

Anyone know of anyplace that's stocking this?

LOC make 24 and 29mm thick wall tube in 34" lengths.

Totally Tubular do foil lined 24mm, again a full length is 34" - not as thick walled as LOC though thicker than Estes.

I hadn't thought of LOC. Any idea if their 29mm motor tube is the same stuff that they use for their 38/29mm motor adapters?

Balsa Machining has a 29mm heavy wall tube. I think it's called the T52-H.

I have some 34" lengths of heavy walled 29mm tubes (I need to check now that I think about it - they may be 36" long) that I got off eBay. I have more than I need (like 5 or 6 of them.) How many do you want? Perhaps we could work a swap or something....

Thanks, but I got a quick response from Totally Tubular (which I didn't expect) and they had both, as well as a few other pieces I needed. I asked for 3.6" of BT80 and he offered to send a full BT80 that had a crimped end. Can't turn down a nice offer like that. I can cut several 3.6" rings and offer them to people who want to convert their Estes V2 to a Canadian Arrow.

Still, I'll be needing more 29mm's, three at a time.
What do you want/need?
I've got an A.S.P. 18mm WAC Corporal scale kit with the top cut off the bag but that's all.
