    So, the only device I own is an SXK billet box that I run with the Kanger RBA that was included.

    This morning while trying to rewick, my cat thought I was opening his food and pounced onto my table. I've broken my Boro glass and lost the screw that holds the RBA together.

    Could anyone help me find out where to get new parts for this? I've only found one place online that sells boro's and I think insiders? But together they're just short the price of replacing the entire kit :(.

    As this is my only device, I'd really like to get it sorted out as soon as possible. I've started looking for Mcguyver methods of replacing the glass in the mean time.

    Any advice is hugely appreciated!

    You could technically cut up a piece of plastic (a thicker smart shopper card etc) to substitute for glass in the interim.
    Screws - depending which screw you lost- most electronics (or even the smaller cellphone shops) might be able to help you.
    The RBA's used to come with spare screws though.

    @Chickenstrip in the spirit of all @Rob Fisher is doing, I will send you the original RBA that came with my SXK billet. I unfortunately have no spare glasses, apart from the backup one I have in an envelope. Will the RBA help solve some of your problems?

    Just had a look at those links for Downtown... @Chickenstrip
    The Insider is pretty expensive, so pass, but the Boro will cost very much the same if you had to get one from Fasttech.
    I suggest that you pick one of those up, then I will send you the RBA.

    @Chickenstrip
    Brent of Bearded Viking makes acrylic windows, which you could use or keep as a back-up should it happen again. I doubt that he has any ready-made for your mod, but perhaps he could make one for you. And while you're about it, pick up one of his absolutely stunning build stands!

    EDIT: You can PM Brent directly from the forum @The Beard

    @CJB85 please note, @Chickenstrip , if you haven’t ordered a boro yet I can pif you one, as well as a Kanger rba. Please advise via pm and I can courier it to you. May have a spare glass as well, will have a look and will include that as well if I find it.

    I'd just like to take a moment to thank each and every one of you that offered to help me! needed advice on where to find parts and all of you have offered to provide them for me! I'm blown away, truly!

    I've taken @Room Fogger up on his offer as he has everything I need and won't have to put multiple people into a position of going out of their way.

    Thanks so much again guys! You're all the best! And a special thanks to you @Room Fogger for all your help.
