    Im sure if there is a company close to where u live u could buy it cheaper, but if u have to have it shipped the cost might not be that much cheaper unless u buy a ton of it.

    There are companies out there, but be ready to pay. Unless you are making a whole lot of tubes it's not worth it. Well, if you have all the equipment and you are a die-hard DIYer then it may be worth it for you. There is nothing like making your own stuff.

    These are some of the tools for a good tube making party:
    Drill press
    Air compressor and a stapler
    Table saw
    Dead-blow hammer
    Holesaw
    Staples
    Wood for making plugs
    Chop saw (miter saw) with a good blade (or a big band saw)
    Router and router table
    Truck and trailer to go get the pipe
    Gas to drive to get the pipe. Be ready to drive a few miles.


    You'll probably end up spending double or more what the mortar companies are selling them for.

    What size you looking at?

    Eric makes a great product. as he said you can do it yourself too, but you don't need all those tools!
    a chop saw and a pnumatic stapler is it!
    isco has hdpe usually in 10' sticks, tell them its for fireworks.

    Just ordered 100 more mortars this afternoon from PyroBoom.
    If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

    I second PyroBoom. Nice racks too.

    I ordered some 12-shot racks from them two years ago. I'm probably going to order some tubes from them and make additional racks based off their design.
