I am offering to the telescope making community an excellent alternative to cardboard sono tubes! Kraft Phenolic tubing is a resin impregnated paper that is cured in an oven under pressure. The resin makes the tube much stronger than paper alone. The big bonus is that it also becomes moisture resistant and dimentionally stable. The perfect combination for scope builders! It is also much lighter than a typical sono tube. Recently several telescope makers have purchased our tubing for making Dobs and they loved it! Now it is time for us to offer it to the rest of you.

PT-6.0: 6" ID x 48" long. ~0.074 wall 36.9 oz. $32.95 each
PT-7.5: 7.5" ID x 48" long. ~0.080 wall 48.1 oz. $38.45 each
PT-11.4: 11.4" ID x 48" long. ~0.125 wall 104 oz. $76.15 each

We also offer fiberglass wrapped phenolic tubing and custom made carbon fiber tubing up to 48" diameter and up to 96" length. Email for more info and shipping charges. I may consider some trades for high quality scopes and parts as well.
Thanks,
---Frank
