razz said:I had the same problem Charst so I thought I would put a straight connector into the silicone to make a tight fit.
Pm'd Mark, I went to bunnings last night and got 5 odd options for how I could make this thing and by the time id priced out all the tools and bits to bend, stretch or solder the copper, it'd be cheaper to have someone skilled make a decent one rather than Butchery Bills efforts over here.MHB said:Its called a Crox, to make them you need a croxing tool, it actually stretches the tube out from the inside to form the bump.
A frigging good set of 1/2" benders (I use specialised SS instrument tube benders, bending SS tube is hard work) and a bit of practice with both wouldn't go astray.
PM me and I might be able to knock one up for you
Razz did you just add the connecter to the tube, no soldering?
I found little copper caps for 127.7mm tube last night and that would have probably added the additional diameter required, less than the olive which looks like it may make the silicone too tight.
