Either one would do the job at $16 copy. In looking for brass versions, I found quite a few, nearly all at $70 and up to nearly $300 for higher pressure stuffs. And if I had some brass stock for the screw I could make it, but steel screws would just rust and clog. So I changed to a pinch the hose idea, which I'll do this afternoon. I can do that with a 1/2x3/4 piece of 1/8 alu panel scrap and a pair of 3mm.7 cap screws I already have a box of. Probably cold flow problems with the plastic hose, but no long term corrosion to deal with. > > > > _______________________________________________ > Emc-users mailing list > Emcfirstname.lastname@example.org > https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/emc-users Cheers, Gene Heskett -- "There are four boxes to be used in defense of liberty: soap, ballot, jury, and ammo.
