    Right – possibly the most obscure thing I’ve ever posted 🙂

    I’m after a couple of rubber or silicone bungs to fit a 68mm drainpipe. need to be 62mm or so at the narrow end.

    don’t care about material or colour.

    donation to charity of choice waiting.

    anyone?

    Thanks

    Have a look on here – I’ve got some fairly sized obscure feet for 50’s tables and other bungs and stuff from them. http://www.componentforce.co.uk

    [edit] any good? http://www.componentforce.co.uk/category/88/silicone-stoppers

    Thanks – yes – they want a min order value of £25 🙁 I only need 2 and they won’t do free samples unless there’s an order to come..

    Ebay is your friend

    sorry, I didn’t know about the minimum order thing – I’ve tended to buy a number of items at once.

    Hope you find somewhere selling something similar with no minimum.

    Thanks – spotted that seller too – its Hong Kong based and delivery looks like an age. It is my second choice…

    Alternatively, depending on how permanent/water-tight/pressured you need the seal to be I would probably cut some disks out of wood with my jigsaw (blade at an angle), wrap with inner tube and bung that in! 🙂

    indeed – looking for a neater finish though

    try searching for ‘end cap’ rather than bung.

    cheers – blimey there’s whole world of stuff out there… sadly nothing that jumps out for 68mm

    That link from houndlegs is a goody – thanks. blimey nearly £30 for 2 lumps of rubber…

    Bit left field but try your local pet shop, eg, rubber dog ball..

    probably better with something like a flexseal rubber endcap, at least they can be fastened relatively securely.

    One of these: http://www.screwfix.com/p/floplast-boss-adaptor-40mm-pack-of-5/89174 and one of these: http://www.screwfix.com/p/socket-plug-40mm/34151
    Can’t remember the outer diameter of the boss adapter but they are about drainpipe size.

    yes – my application needs to have the ability to easily remove the end cap (at least one) so the jubilee clip is a bit overkill. the pipe won’t have liquid in but will live outdoors. what I need is the cap that is a snug fit for a 68mm pipe…

    will research dog balls (ahem) – may still be the cheapest

    Thank you STW 🙂
