Neoprene fitting problems


#1

Have any orchid folk got experience fitting neoprene 2mm rubber
into the round bayonet filltings that I are especially designed for
the task of mating the two ends. The bigger sizes respond well to
the use of Lochtile and other types of super glue but with the
smaller one (2m) there is not enough surface area to hold the
neoprene well. Any in formation would be be very much appreciated.

kind regards,
Brendan

Hi Brendan,

You can cut tubing that will telescope into the end of the bayonet.
Sometimes it can be tricky finding the right size tube. I also
suggest using JB Weld for the epoxy. Works very well.

Good luck, Reba
