Easy o-ring grooves.

Unread postAuthor: )DEMON( » Tue Jun 27, 2006 5:50 am

This is an easy way of making o-ring grooves with few tools.
The tools you will need are: hack saw and pliers.
What you need: PVC and o-ring about the same size as the PVC.

NOTE:I am not using glue in the following steps,YOU MUST USE GLUE.

Get the peice of pvc you want grooves in and o-rings about the same size,make sure they are clean.
step-2.jpg
Cut the pvc where you want the o-ring groove. Get a small piece of the same size pvc as the peice you started with.
step-3.jpg
Take the smaller piece of pvc (which is going to be the piece that you sleave inside the other pieces) and cut a portion out of it, smaller pvc needs large (about 1/4 to 1/3) cut out where larger pieces need small portions cut out.
step-4.jpg
Sleave the new piece into the other piece(you would use glue here)and make sure you have done it correct.Make sure there is enough for the o-ring and the other piece of pvc.
step-5.jpg
Slip your o-ring over the sleaved piece and glue the other part of your selected piece over the sleaved piece,the o-ring should sit comfortably

Nope,the glue fixes that problem.If it dosn't then just cut it so there is no gap.

Good Idea! Sounds easy to do. For smaller pipe you can take a pipe-cutter and cut a gash into it but not all the way through.

Doesn't anyone have a stove? lol

I just mark the PVC where I want the grooves at and then boil it and cut down the place where the marker is...

Nice guide though, It helds aldo because if your making a piston you can set the washers on the smaller inside peice of PVC...
