Thread: LARGE GITD O-RINGS

  1. #1

    Default LARGE GITD O-RINGS

    Hi,

    I've been searching everywhere and I can only get smaller GITD O-Rings. I am looking for some that are bigger than 50mm diameter.

    Specifically 51mm, 5mm, 55mm or 64mm

    Any advice where I can buy them?

    Make your own with IV tubing, glow powder, and hot glue. This is a small one I made, but I did make a 72mm one for my Wife's sportman flashlight. I can take a picture of that one if you want.

    These that I make glow better than anything that you can buy.

    Cool, thank you for this. They look really great! I will have a go.

    The first image of the smaller one. Is that for the bezal or is it going behind the reflector?

    It was actually around an optic. Here are two examples, the second photo is a small o-ring and not just one for glow under the optic.

    Just make sure you use a good quality glow powder, there is a lot of junk out there.

    Could you explain your technique for making them? Particularly mixing the powder and hot glue, then getting into the tube, also how to make the join. Would be much appreciated! Thank you!
