4" is plenty for 30x40 (and was the size of the original Maxwell tubes), but a bit tight for 40x50. I just did a trial 40x50 rollup which created a roll with a 4.5" diameter. I am currently using 4" ABS pipe for my 30x40s. Once I am done refurbishing my horizontal enlarger (Devere 8x10), I planned to use 5" ABS for 40x50.
