Wouldn't that make a tube the same diameter as the motor case as the liner fits inside the reloadable case?

Yeah, good point! Maybe I should sometimes have my morning coffee and put the brain into gear before posting ;-)

Good size for making a coupler?

Yeah that would work.. then if I get the coupler perfectly round I have a fibreglass 3" coupler that I can use as a mandrel and roll 3" tubes off that.. Now I just need to find a heap more phenolic liners to make a long mandrel for the coupler.. then re use the extra liners for a fleet of V2's :twisted:
