^Not sure why the youtube tags aren't working, just copy paste the UrL...it's worth the look.

Save yourself some money by straightening your existing masts. You don't even have to detach them. I use a 3/8" ID pipe with a sleeve, but most people just do it by hand.

Roadrunner, can you help with the tube dimensions, the ID/OD of the brass sleeve insert one and ID/OD of the SS outer tube? Where you bought/found them?

This is simply 3/8" ID galvanized (not SS) steel pipe I picked up from a scrap metal yard in town. The brass is 9/16 ID thinwall tubing that I found in a hobby shop. If you don't have the pipe, you don't need the tubing. But if you do, take it along with a mast and make sure it fits right. As I mentioned before, most people just use their hand, and that's exactly what I did before finding the pipe. The masts have a tendency to bend where they previously bent. It doesn't have to be exact to work. In fact, several users have slightly bent fins and don't even notice. 8)
