JV, could you do me a favour please?

Can you measure your spare red O ring in mm please? (It's the biggest one, it's quite thin)

I'm guessing it'll be 22/23mm and 1mm thick. I can't measure mine because it's in the tank ;)

Thanks!

Yup, I've nothing negative to say. Great build quality, finish, and price. It's quickly becoming my all time favorite tank! I'm extremely happy with it.
It's like they took all the parts of my favorite RTAs and built it just perfect for my taste. =) JFC from original merlin (tolerance as good), reducer option from Merlin mini, clean top fill with no juice dripping down the side after closing, whisky barrel bulge of the glass to get more capacity(LOVE the 6ml option), relatively flat topcap to accept all my favorite tips, Ammit side airflow, awesome deck options, airflow at any setting is ultra smooth, removable deck without draining juice in tank,so easy to build and wick too. Only thing I can say as a minor frustration for me personally is the Phillips head grubs. Just don't like em. But I've already swapped them out for hex, so we're all good. =)




What I also like is that it's a little bit wider which makes mods look smaller and means there's a bit more space inside the glass for the juice to flow properly.

My Evic mini is being an asshat again (I now remember why I felt the need to get a new mod) and I'm not getting my other casing back till the end of the week :(

Thanks JV, you're a legend.

So that's 23mm ID x 1mm

Wish I had some calipers ;)

At the risk of becoming a pest, those grub screws are 2.5mm right? (lol, feel free to ignore me now)

Thanks again!

It doesn't look like FT sells a 25mm x 1mm o-ring (or 23mm ID). They do a 1.5mm.

Oh well, the other atty will arrive at some point so at least I'll have one spare.

a 25x1 would be 27mm? So is it 25mm ID or OD? Or is it always OD with o-rings.. I have no clue :D

Seems to be ID, so 23x1 for a 25mm O-Ring

A thicker but smaller ring could work also. Like as in maybe a 23X1.5 or 22X2mm. Hard to say. But I've had to do that a few times in the past with success. As a smaller ring stretches the thickness becomes narrowed by the stretch and works out to be the close tolerance needed. It's trial and error but worth a shot as rings are cheap. =)

ID would be 23mm after subtracting the thickness. =)
