  3. Ah cheers guys that helps as I've built the tube rack with 15 mm pipe so they should still be a rattling fit.

    Watch out - 15mm diameter may be getting a bit close if some are 10x10mm square cross section as hofnerite says.

  5. 15mm should fine.... as long as the tube is straight!

  7. I was looking on screwfix tonight for some. Is it plumbing or electrical conduit?
    Bought some from B&Q last but can't remember what it was and of course Screwfix would be half the price.

    I use the larger poles from a couple of those crappy cheap gazebos that fall apart pretty quickly. The smaller poles I use as stakes.

    You can put foil tape on the top 300mm of each tube to help it stop melting;)
     
  15. I thought 20mm may be better too. I've already started building one rack but it's OK as I plan to use that with a pack of brothers extreme machines and I'm sure they have smaller sticks even the largest rocket in the pack.

    I put aluminium tape on mine, even with a bit of melt, they still work fine, after a couple of years just, level em off and start again :)
