Carboard Tube Source For Wing Servo Leads

Does anyone know where I can get some carboard or paper tubes for routing the servo leads through the wing? I could make them but if someone knows of a readily available source please let me know.

Model rocket tubes from the hobby store work well.

maybe just roll a sheet of white paper in a tube? 8 1/2 x 11 or 8 1/2 x 14.

Not long enough? Maybe use a sheet of wrapping paper (xmas, birthday) that was left over.

What size tube do you want to use?

If you want something really small that only the wire will pass through use straws from your local Wendy's. You can stretch the ends slightly larger with needle nose pliers and join them together. Don't forget to glue the joints.

You might find larger diameter straws at some other fast food place.

It should be easy for you to make a tube from heavy brown paper which is readily available at art supply stores.
