    Will you be sending any SS 4in1 caps?They are on your list but not at COV.I know there were limited quantities of the brass but what about the SS?
    I have asked several times in several places for weeks but have gotten no response from anyone about them.
    I did receive my GGTS the other day and it is very nice.
    What about the magnet upgrade for the switch?

    this 4 in 1 cap is on preorders list, so it will be ready in about 2,5 months med. What is ready for now will be send to Bruce.

    I am not making magnets any more but I think there are some places where they make magnets that may fit on switch. Other people here know better than me so I am sure they will help you on this issue:)

    I'm finding different sizes for the o-ring on the penelope, can someone please clarify. I found some people using 1.8 x 1.8. and I found 3mm (ID) x 1.8mm (Cross section (thickness) in the wiki. I am looking for the one that goes under the nut to ground the wire to prevent leaking of juice on to my provari. Thank you.

    we used to use 3x1,78 but this o-ring sometimes stucks to the bottom of the penelope's base and prevent rebuildable part to get unscrewed easily, so we now use 1,78x1,78 nod:)

    It seems that is not common to find the exact metric sizes of o-rings in USA, so I was thinking in the AS568 sizes as an alternative, for example:

    Odysseus in short mode:

    Official metric O-Rings sizes:
    (Inner diameter x Cross section (thickness) in Millimeters)

    16 x 1.5 (2) Odysseus base, between refilling cap and body
    1.78 x 1.78 Under center pin
    9 x 2 Between caps

    AS568 closest available sizes:

    [​IMG]

    will those (AS568) o-rings work ok?

    I'm looking for an alternative, standardized measurement and equivalent to the official sizes, to include in the GG Wiki O-Rings guide.

    Ariel, I think they're all readily available here. They don't have 1.78 exactly, but do have 1.8 mm cross section and I don't think anybody will notice any difference from them being 0.02mm thicker ;-)

    Oh, and that replacement for the 9 x 2 may or may not work. I had better luck with a 3/32" cross section for that application, the 1/16" allowed a little air ingress and caused some flooding on my Ody (tried that size replacement a while back after losing the original o-ring, I suspect that o-ring I used was my problem but can't be 100% positive, it was quite a while ago). For the record, I'm still using that 3/8 x 3/32 for my Ody top cap

    So just for reference here a 1.78x1.78 o-ring is actually AS568A-004 or .070" ID .210" OD
