    I'd be happy to help if all else fails I live in the Stix in WA so have to order in some ally.

    Or wait till I come back through Perth on our holidays which is going to be mid August I want to grab some anyway as I'm wanting to do some centre caps for my EH.

    It would cost a bomb postage though.

    Takai, that design is bang on what I'm after!
    Well feel free to download the design in whichever format suits. All yours.

    Is good in a pinch. But for me, I find it really inconsistent with flow rates and very inconsistent with term to heat... Sometimes it acts like a heat sink and shit gets cold, othertimes it doesn't and you expect it to... It's just not consistent enough for every day use for me.

    Maybe I'm a complete spastic (in fact that's pretty likely), but I've had no luck with it not tearing up or falling out.

    I would of thought scrunched up Alfoil in the end around the hose would be better and less chance of it falling out.

    u gunna drill a hole through it to purge the air out?
    All the sets I have used have had two fittings. One end with feed and the other end with purge. Same plug each end though, just different fittings into the 1/4BSP.

    Was having to show someone how to do basic things with Fusion 360 today, and needed something to model. So 10mins later here is a 105-60mm purge plug: http://a360.co/2tqXSbl
