I am nearing completion of my Silver Lancer. I would like to, in the future, have a winding stooge. As I understand it I would need a hollow metal tube instead of the wood dowel. Anyone know what size? Steel, brass, aluminum?

I bought 1/4 inch aluminium tube only yesterday for a rubber job I’m building now.
I always use that size on several large and small models as it works well and I wind on a stooge with a blast tube in the fuselage bb

I have that kind of stooge, but I also have one with two, opposed nylon bolts,with holes drilled in their ends. The ends of the peg go into the holes, and then the screws are snugged up so the model can't get loose.

I have a poor memory, but I suspect I picked it up from someone else who was the clever person. I'll admit it's clever. Annyway, it helps if the holes are well aligned and,the threads aren't too loose.
