I was just looking at some thick wall NEPT end cuts that have been lying in the yard and have unfurled. They appear to have been rolled from three layers of at least 40# kraft stacked atop each other. I found no signs of offset in the layers though it's possible they cut the staggered sections off before and after rolling. 


Come on! Name one other hobby in which you cheer as your money and hard work go up in smoke!

How do you prevent wrinkles? And also my tubes were dry but you could squeeze them and it would sort of warp. anyone know why?

So difficult to say, but if you follow the tutorial exactly there should be no problem. Keep the paste sparse consistent with a good bond. Try again and come back.... or message me direct.

try buying a roll of COATED kraft paper. i bought a 12 wide roll from an online paper supplier, and use 1/2 aluminum robas the former. roll the coated kraft around your former (number of wraps depends only on what you want, but i use 12 wraps of 60# recycled kraft for 1/2 rocket tubes), put a piece of masking tape around the rolled tube, and with the former still in it, bake it in the oven at 250 degrees for an hour. it comes out perfectly smooth and absolutely rock solid. slides right off the former when it cools, works like magic.

Interesting, Is that the poly coated kraft, guessing the poly melts?
