    (copied this from another o ring thread)

    This is an issue that I have raised before. The same applies to deck screws.

    ALL vape shops in SA should keep a selection of o rings and grub screws.

    For a couple of hundred bucks investment (the price of a bottle of juice), they would supply a service to all vapers. Even if they charged a crazily inflated price of R15 per o ring/screw the vaping public would gladly pay for it if it would save an atty.

    We all know of industrial suppliers that stock these items but they are usually a hassle to find and you often have to buy in bulk.

    Any company that provides the high-cost items with glee should also stock the items that don't make much profit but ensure that their customers are well served.

    I may be pessimistic but I hold out no hope that, in the near future, we could walk into any vape shop and find a selection of o rings and grub screws.:mad:

    Does anyone think that I should post a copy of this in the "who has stock" thread?

    Go to a plumber shop. Worked for me at R1, 50. All sizes you can think of.

    Plug and play right there.
