Grommet Shopping

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This might seem like a strange question but here goes. I'm looking for a grommet with an ID of 7/8" (slightly bigger than 3/4", my tubing size but less than an 1") but the groove width must be able to fit a 3mm acrylic sheet (side window).

I've found a ton of 7/8" grommets but the closest groove width I've found is 2mm and 3.5mm.

Which one of these 2 would you recommend?

(Also is groove diameter the size of the hole needed to mount the grommet? If not, what is the name of said size?)

I'd go with 3.5mm. You could always put some tape or something like that on the acrylic around the hole to make it "thicker."

And Groove diameter should be exactly what you think it is.

EDIT: BTW, where are you shopping for grommets?

From this website here: http://www.britechindustries.com/grommets/grommetsb.htm

I've been using an inch to mm converter (found via google) to get the exacts. Actually found a 3.1mm groove width size which is 1/8". So I figure 7/8" ID with 1/8" groove width should be perfect.

You might also want to look into McMaster-Carr. They have all sorts of crazy hardware.
