Any suggestions for a lubricant? Heat resistant? Baby powder? vegetable oil?

I would think that some sort of non-stick cooking spray would help. Maybe PAM?

when I made rocket motor nozzles I used WD-40 to separate the wooden mold from the cement. You could try that.

At this point I am aborting the mission. If my tube were copper, I would shape it to a temporary tube and and bake it with the tube inside.
