Here’s a video on cutting down the old style
100 round tubes into 50 round tubes. And using the same removable style lids on
the 50 round tubes that we make. First thing I’m gonna do is remove the lids
from either. The next thing I’m gonna do is measure the
difference in the two We can see that I need to take about 3 and
a half inches off this tube. So with my sharpie I’m going to do a mark
all the way around this tube. In several spots, at 3 and a half inches. There’s one. There’s another. And here’s another. So now we have 3 marks around the 100 rd tube. And with the saw on my leatherman, I’m going to just cut the tube down. Here we go! Sawing down 100rd pod to 50 round pod] [Cutting and sawing…] Making sure that I stay lined up. [More Cutting and sawing on tube…] I didn’t line it up perfectly but that’s okay because…
I can go around afterwards and just kinda trim this and our cap will cover this also. So again with my leatherman, I’ll just take my blade, just go around the edge, smooth
the edge down a little bit. Get some of those unnecessary scraps.
We can heat it or do something else to make it look nicer but it doesn’t really matter
because we’re going to cover it up with our lid anyways.
We have a pb virus lid, stick it on there, pretty tight fit.
Comparing it to the exisiting 50 rd tube. And there we go, both about the same size
and we have another 50 round tube now.
