    O-rings questions. ( for drippers)

    Hi,
    any one got advice re buying o-rings. I want to try using thicker o rings for some dripers I got fro fastech some time ago, but the topps are really loose fitting.

    Firstly, will this be likely to work?
    And what size selections should I get. They are for patriot/ stillare type clones. Should I just write them off and get new rda's locally? I have been eying a few off at vapeking and vapoureyes.

    Should the O-rings be rubber or silicon if I buy them?
    I was thinking of fastech again because I cannot find suitable looking sizes locally, but
    is there a good more local source?

    I use a local bearing company for all my orings. They can get any size in next day. So I just ring and order and they throw in an envelope and post. Get yourself a copy of the standard imperial and metric o-ring charts and look at local companies.

    Mine is AB bearings there must be some in Melbourne

    dental floss or fishing line under the current o'rings will work
    If you have noticed this notice you may have noticed that this notice is not worth noticing. That is all.

    Hey thanks both, will hit the floss and that chart will be handy. Are the o rings silicon or rubber?

    Great, I find those things everywhere. They may melt though.
