    So I'm working on a bottom feeder of sorts. Having issues finding the right dimensions for tubing and it's almost all sold in bulk so I don't want to order 5-10ft of the wrong stuff.

    From what i've read the general bottom feeder method would be to put a 1/16th od metal tube through the battery connector to feed the atty, put some plastic tubing on the end and run that through the cap of a bottle to the bottom of it so you can squeeze it up like the reo. I'm finding 1/16th ID tubing and 1/32nd ID tubing, does anyone know what is commonly used? I imagine 1/16th would be too big since it'll just 'slide' onto the metal tube and possibly pop off under pressure of a squonk, is 1/32nd the right size or should I hunt down some 3/64th so it only has to stretch 1/64th to fit around the center pin tube? Dunno if the 1/32nd ID will stretch enough or if the tube would be too narrow for effective feeding.


    thanks in advance.

    so 1/16th inch fits over the 1/16th inch OD tube in the atty and doens't just slip off? or did you use a different kind of pipe through the connector?

    What 1/16 tube in a atty ? A 15g needle is a perfect fit in the tube as well as the opening on a big hole 510 connector . A 16g needle will work as well . The tube itself doesnt go into the atty ,it goes into the bottle .

    The tube is a nice tight fit onto the needles above and def wont pop off

    I was going to use 1/16th OD stainless steel tube through the center pin on the battery connector that would feed the actual atty
