    I'm wondering what carto's you all use for these tanks? I just picked up some syringes and now need to figure out the carto to use.

    On my 5v box mod, and IPro VV, I use 3Ω Boges, and on my 3.7v's I use 1.7Ω Resurrectors.

    Polypropylene is not clear, it naturally has a translucent frosted look.

    I took a good look at shoulder washers. I focused on the nylon ones because I figured that would best serve our purpose. The biggest reason I am reluctant to try them is the fact that they have no "give", much like the delrin that is used for many end caps.

    If we could find the proper size, do you think we'd have to put a groove in around the inside and outside of the "insert part"? Some of the sizes that I found seemed acceptable, but IMHO they would need O rings for a tight and secure fit.

    I have easily spent 12 hours searching for the end caps. I'm convinced that they have been re purposed and are available somewhere in bulk, but can not find them.
    If you go to google images and use the following terms, you can get very close but not quite there. I had some of the best luck with:
    adapter flange
    seal flange
    flange bushing
    shoulder washer
    stub end adapter

    I have tried most all of those with the addition of "with o-rings" as well.
    If you still smoke analogs, people will soon look at you like your phone has a cord.

    So, the search goes on... Thanks for the additional search words. I think that a lot of the major tank sellers mill their own end caps. I mean. look how expensive the end caps are from BigDaddyVapor. The chibi tank looks like it uses the 5/5" grommets, maybe...

    I have seen lots of custom drip tips made from polymer clay, but, personally, I don't think it's safe to inhale warm vapor against it. Gotta admit, it'd be fun to make our own end caps, but I'd never use the medium of polymer clay as part of my vaping.

    Well, at least we've got great inexpensive polypropylene tubing...

    The vendors have to be getting these in bulk somewhere, how can we make someone talk?

    Funny, LOL... If I had a business, and I made a gazillion dollars, I could hire a company in China to make some for us...
    But, then I could afford to spend a couple hundred dollars without bothering...

    Oh, well. I don't think that what the vendors are charging for them is too outrageous anyway. Guess I'll just buy a few more and be done with it.

    My problem is that I diy, and I can't control myself with flavors. I admit it; I'm a flavor junkie. Right now, I have at least 25 tanks in rotation, and I need an unlimited supply. I just can't stop...
