Hello Everyone.... Hope you all are doing well...
Guys, I really need your help here.
I have a Rokkaku which is 230cm wide and 300cm tall and I have broke my Upper Horizontal Spars last time, due a small accident. So, now I'm confused in which I'm going to replace it.
Last time, I used 9mm CF Tubes in 3 parts (3 x 77cm long spar) to make it 230cm long, because I don't had the spars more than 100cms long. This time I'm thinking to use 10mm CF tubes to add some strength.
Since I have some left outs of other tubes of same thickness and fixed 100cm long spares, I was thinking of below options to make it 230cm long....
(I use Smaller CF tubes as ferules to connect with each other that fits inside perfectly)
1. Either I add 15cm tube at the extremes with 100cm tubes in the middle.
2. Or put the 15cms in the middle and the 100cms at the extremes. I don't have anything left that is 30cms long to put in the middle.
3. Should I make it 3 parts as I did before. (77cm-77cm-77cm) In this way I have to use 3 new tubes and then cut down to 77m. Whereas in other two methods, I utilize just 2 full spars of 100cm tubes with some left outs.
The only thing I'm concerned about is while making the Bow for the rokkaku. At the same time more efficient, not to break early.
So friends, please suggest me the best way to put it in and what works better.
