Rolling Motor Tubes

I'll be adding a photo essay on rolling motor tubes to the No-Cal home page. There are probably as many variations in the process as there are modelers that do it, but this will get you started if you haven't done it before. Many thanks to my Dad for holding the various parts while I took the pictures! Here's the first of the essay . . .
