    I looked at the welding tubes at the hardware store yesterday and the only one's they had were over 12 inches long. I am shooting 5x7. What size are the tubes you are getting? I am assuming suitable for 8x10, right?

    I settled on 10 foot section of conduit tube and mish mash of PVC parts. The hardware guy I got to help me really got into it and we were coming up with all kinds of concoctions. They would not cut the conduit down so I have the body makings of a lot of tubes.

    My problem is the cap. It is not very convienient to get off. It gets stuck. Has anyone come up with a way to make this easy. By the way What does a waste Adapter look like. No one had a clue.

    Mark, I put a threaded male pipe adapter on the tube and a female treaded pipe female adapter that inserts into the glue cap to allow a threaded cap on my tubes. Works great

    The waste adapter is the female threaded pipe by male glue fitting adapter.

    Okay. made the tubes as close to the instructions as my local hardware store could get. They look pretty cool, but.....The lid seizes and so does the screw top. I basically have to bang the hell out of it to get it open. Before I put film in these things I need to solve this problem. Any suggestions?

    Mark,

    I have not experienced that problem. Perhaps you are screwing them on too tight.

    Irregardless, what I would do would be to pick up a roll of teflon thread tape at the same hardware store. This tape, if you haven't used it before, is wrapped tightly over the male threaded componants... in the direction of screwing something onto the male threads. This tape will act as a lubricant and a sealer of threaded parts.
