Does anybody have recommendations on where i could source quality 1.50/6" tubes that would be strong enough for Double voice crackers? I can find 3 pound rocket tubes everywhere but not 6?

What about these,do you think they could be made to work?

Maybe a few wraps of duct tape on the black powder side to strengthen it just enough?

Those are crazy expensive tubes. I'll bet they're $7+ each after shipping.

 

For your purposes I would find a source of chipboard and roll my own. Roll them as thick as you want.

Here's a price to beat as a starting point (as in don't pay more than this). The shipping can be really high, so it pays to find a local paper output and pick it up directly.

I never set a account up with firefox yet,its a bit of a pain. They come out to about $1 a piece before shipping which is still way better than woody's prices though.... I like him and order a lot of things there,but that's to salty for my blood. I have some ideas of using a material other than cardboard after combing the web for hours and looking at specs....Its not ideal but it should work for my own entertainment and purposes as long as a proper safe distance is maintained. It's looking like large strong tubes are disappearing off the market,They get harder and harder to find,and it drives up the price at the very few suppliers we have left. There used to be so many suppliers out there 20 years ago

If rolling your own ramboard or xboard are cheap sources of chipboard available at big box hardware stores.

For cheap tubes try this: https://www.ebay.com...m-/261407542859
