mtnman, where did you get the metal 'countersink reinforcements', and how are they fastened/implanted in the outer tube/nosecone?

Those are Lumadyne nuts/washers. You can find them at Apogee:


There was a time when you could buy them straight from the manufacturer and I got a whole bunch of them in bulk. Now, it appears you can only get them from Apogee. Too bad, they are pretty slick and Apogee is selling them at a premium.

Once my current supply is gone, I am not sure I will buy them at $5 a pair. I have been looking around for a replacement, but have not found one yet.

25 or 50, depends on what quantity said thread/size is sold by Mcmaster. I don't plan to split up quantities if that makes sense.
Depending on the cost I would be interested in the sizes mentioned in a previous post.
