    20 mm aluminum wing tube

    Hi Guys,
    I am looking for a 20 mm X 24 inch aluminum wing tube. I have called every where and no one has one. Any ideas.
    Thanks.

    RE: 20 mm aluminum wing tube

    You can get any size metric tubes in the US from Parker Steel. There is a min $ amount and you need
    a dealer or your local hobby shop to purchase it for you. Google them for address/phone number.

    RE: 20 mm aluminum wing tube

    You can also look at the steel supply or farmer's supply shops in the area. That's where I get my tubes in 6061 or 7075 and both with a T-6 temper.

    Typically, by the foot and VERY reasonable. I get mine from Great Southwest Metals in SW Houston. Many more places like Metal Mart on-line, etc.

    RE: 20 mm aluminum wing tube

    What about a swimming pool broom pole? Plenty feet of aluminum for next to nothing.
    If you propose to speak first ask yourself: is it true, is it kind, is it necessary?

    RE: 20 mm aluminum wing tube

    Do what I did to find an aluminum tube for my Boomerang Intro. I didn't find the right size in aluminum (2 1/8). I found 2" or 2 1/4. (The original tube was in carbon fiber but was broken in an accident).

    So I got the 2" aluminum tube and got a piece of vinyl tape (black) and cutted it the same lenght of the tube and a little wider than the tube perimeter. Sat the vinyl tape in a glass table and placed the tube carefully in one of the tape sides and rolled the tube very carefully until the tape was completely adhered to the tube. No bubbles at all.

    I repeated the process until I get the desired tube diameter.......

    RE: 20 mm aluminum wing tube

    I replaced my hotspot spar with 20mm carbon tube. It turned out to be 20.2mm carbon and wouldnt go into the wings! Ended up having to drill out the wing and fus tubes.
