    Hello all,
    I have 3 RBA's (Phoenix clone, Wyvern, Igo-S) that use very thin O-rings to keep the pieces together without leaking. Eyeballing them, they seem to have about 1.0 cm diameter. Does anyone know where I can replacements? I've looked at places like Home Depot, but can't find anything small and thin enough. Also the vivi mini novas use even thinner ones between the plastic and tank and end caps.
    Thanks in advance!

    I use The O-ring Store for 1mm and over cross-section (thickness)... and All Watch Parts for sub 1.0mm.

    You'll need to accurately measure the cross-section, which is the most important part... then because most used o-rings get stretched out, pick a diameter a 2-4mm smaller than the application.

    Thanks! I would have never thought about the watch supplies.

    They aren't exactly high temp rated, so I'm not real sure how well they'd hold up on an RDA, but for a clearo, I imagine they'll be fine. I use 0.5mm on all my mech end caps, so they don't get "stuck" when you tighten them down. ;-)
