Wing joiner supplier

Recommended Posts

I have a requirement for 10mm internal diameter tubing to accept a 10mm carbon wing joiner rod. Can anyone suggest a possible supplier since none of the tubing and rod that I have managed to get so far is of nesting tolerance.

Check with the suppliers for tolerances

 

Or make your own following instructions found for making a ballast tube, for example (substitute resin of your choice to match structure)

Hello

 

Give Gliders (www.Gliders.uk.com) a call. I get 8mm id brass tube from them. They show 10mm id tube on their website

Hope this helps

I tried the DIY approach last night and it seems promising.

 

I used the silicone release paper sold for kitchen use to wrap a 10mm rod and then applied a strip of skinning cloth and epoxy resin over it to create a thin walled tube that is a good fit. It’s a little too fragile to use but I now know the method works and that it is not too difficult.

 

Thanks again for all your help. :thumbsup:
