Excellent for marking tubes
By Corvettejonesy December 11, 2012
Easy to use and accurate. Simplifies measuring and marking tubes for proper alignment and placement of lugs, fins, tube-to tube configurations, etc. Way easier than trying to wrap paper around a tube to mark it for fin placement, or to use the door-jam method for straight lines. The pencil marking guide to mark around the circumference of the tube is great for setting up a cut line, or other accessory placement.

Great for marking larger body tubes, too!
By scott October 15, 2012
For building low-power (Estes/Quest-type) rockets, this is an indispensable tool. It allows you to quickly and accurately mark body tubes for things like launch lug placement (where you want a straight line!), fin location and alignment and even finish work such as paint stripes. I've also used it a number of times to mark much larger (up to 4 diameter) body tubes. Another trick you can take to the bank for larger rockets: Lay the fin location guide (the one that the vertical body tube is attached to in the product image here at Hobbylinc) down on a sheet of paper and mark dots around the outside for your fin pattern -- either 3 or 4 fins. For four-fin design, you can use a straight edge to connect the opposing dots to have a big 90-degree plus on a sheet of paper. Then you can stand your large body tube over it (you can look down the body tube to get an indication that the body tube is centered), and mark the body tube fin locations. THEN, you can take the marking guide itself to pencil in the lengths down the tube. Simple idea/tool, but lots of uses, and definitely worth the price!

Highly recommended tool
By Eric F. August 13, 2013
If you build lots of Estes rockets you need this! With these guides you will no longer have to cut out the tube marking guide from your instruction sheet and this is more accurate as well. Drawing a straight line on your body tube with the guide is much better than using a door jamb, just be sure to hold your tube carefully while you draw a line along the slot so it doesn't move. After purchasing and using these guides you will wonder how you ever assembled rockets without them!

Works OK
By FinBurner October 10, 2014
This works fine, especially for smaller tube sizes. For larger and longer tubes I prefer to a piece of aluminum angle from Home Depot.
