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.

graphtechrc.com has phenolic tubes, not sure what sizes off the top of my head but they may do custom stuff...

I need fiberglass 1/2" light tubes. Where can I get this?

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,
