Default Where to buy Phenolic Tubing?

Please can someone tell me where I can buy 30mm ID and 10mm ID Phenolic Wing Tube Sockets? I have done a google search and spoke to TNT gear with no luck.

I just need the sockets if I can help it. But they need to fit in the current sockets inside the fuselage300mm ID and 10mm ID. Fiberglass sockets should work.

I think your best bet would be to wax the tubes you have and make your own phenolics.

I don't know how to make it. Could you tell me where to get the information? I use the tubes to make air ducts to provide cooling to the electric motor. See attached picture. I used carbon tube because I have it but it does not make sense. I am puting together anothe electric plane so need to get new 1/2" light tubes. I think phenolic is too heavy compared with fiberglass.

Thanks,
