I've just realised that square section styrene tube is very useful for N size chimneys.
I've ordered some 6.4mm x 6.4mm which is just about right for me.
I need to make about 50 of them so, for me, this is just the job.

Of course, I expect everyone else has been doing it this way for years.

So what's that then for 4mm? About 12mmx12mm, maybe a little more. Although they do vary enormously.

It's a sharp upward curve in price as the size increases.
Much easier to make them in 4mm than 2mm in a more normal way (i.e. - fiddle about with strange shapes!)
