What’s the difference between a tube and a core?

I think Yazoo Mills is my new favourite company. I really wish I had a compelling need for cores or tubes.

Their FAQ page is particularly notable, inasmuch as it appears to actually contain questions that are frequently asked, among which:

What’s the difference between a tube and a core?

A tube is used to put something inside and a core denotes that something is wound onto it.

Do you have any minimums?

We have no minimums. We will make you a single tube, box full, or a truckload.

What lengths can you do?

Any length up to 53 feet.

A 53 foot tube! The mind boggles with possibilities.

I also like that they include the FAQ titled “Services We Do Not Offer”: all company websites should include this section.

I was just about to enquire about Phenolic-impregnated cores, but it's listed in their 'services we do not offer'. Glad that's cleared up! :D
