I believe the wick sustainers are tin. Their diameter is just slightly smaller than the paper spool diameter. The wick sustainers have a hub, too, which is 1/8" in diameter. I can easily glue the wick sustainers to the spools for a little strength. It looks like all the spools will be made with extended wire axles inside aluminum tubes inside the spools which reach to the propellers. Of course there will have to be a way for the spools to rotate freely and turn the propeller shafts...more aluminum tubes with the whole mechanism mounted.
