Looks good.

Try and find a separate source for dip tube 'o' rings as you need to replace those quite often. I take off the posts and remove the dip tubes for cleaning after each use, I replace if they look worn, which is only after a few cleaning cycles.

This year I think that I will finally develop an invisible cardigan and my project to extract gold from spiders legs will also reap great rewards.

Yeah, looks like the do dip tube rings separately http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Cornelius-Dip ... 35efed2940 though suspect a little more pricey (50p each)

It should be possible to figure out what size they all are and order direct from the main supplier. I got lucky a few years ago with a job lot of all the smaller ones from eBay. Steve gets silicone ones which sound better.

Interesting, but that means dealing with yanks :( at least we now have the sizes

Polymax in the UK do them, a quick check has the lid o rings at 20p each in Nitrile and 82p in Silicone (discount break points at 50/100/500). Free UK shipping, but there is a minimum order, which I think is about £15.

OOH! Perhaps a potential bulk buy idea?

May actually not be worth it, think £25 could buy about 50 of each.
