    With all due respect, that's making it more difficult than it need be. Cutting glass tubing is a simple matter: use a tubing cutter designed for glass. They're cheap. Probably cheaper than a diamond cutting disc for a Dremel. All you need to do is make a small score all the way around the tubing and snap it.

    Here's an interesting example: glass tube cutting - YouTube

    Has anyone made a carto with these glass tubes? I was wondering how you would seal the ends?

    I have been using them for almost two years now...but I like quartz tubing better. The tube thats in the mod I'm using is one of the originals that has morphed into several different configurations of my attys over time....but they are not what you guys are used to seeing/using. Take a look if you want.....

    I call it..."My Mod" !!Warning...graphic intense!!
    ................I found a solution that may be bad for one of both of us..............

    I went by the hardware store yesterday, but they tossed all the old sight-glass tubing they had.

    I'm just at a loss as to what to use for the ends. I don't like the idea of grommets in contact with fluid that I'm vaping, and some people are saying syringe mods can leach into fluid and make it taste strange.

    I use vinyl grommets with O-rings. The vinyl will hold up. The rubber grommets and syringe ends (also rubber) will bleed into the juice making it nasty.

    For grommets, use 5/16" ID and 5/8" OD. The O-rings should be 1/2" ID and 5/8" OD (or size .014). This is with a 5/8" ID tubing.

    (ID is inner dimension, OD is outer dimension.)
    I have kleptomania, but when it gets bad I take something for it.

    I was thinking along the same line but a small O-ring in a glass tube should still be better than filler or a plastic tube.

    That's the part that I have been researching now. I want glass due to contamination, but I want to avoid as much as possible. I have a couple of ideas that are not economically feasible (custom is not cheap), but I am still figuring that there is something that will work and not leach and will not leak.

    Vinyl - hmmm - maybe...

    Phiniac sells pyrex tanks, plain or decorated and etched are coming soon.

    Their forum thread is here.

    I don't own one yet, still in the coveting stage.

    So very, very pretty.
