Throw the compression sleeve in a vice and slowly use a stepped drill bit to widen the hole. One you are getting close, flip the compression sleeve and drill from the backside. Keep trying to fit a piece of acrylic through w/ sleeving over top of it often so you don't end up drilling off too much material from the compression ring. Afterward file it smooth so the compression sleeve doesn't cut the sleeving.

oooo dat is jus tewteww much

@lowfat I am working on this now. When you got the sleeve in did you slip it over the top of the first o-ring? How far in around the o-ring did you go to prevent compromising the seal? Thanks in advance for any advice on this.

It goes between the compression ring and the top oring. I leave about 5mm inside the ring. With the Primochill fittings you can fit about 10mm and still be able to screw down the compression ring. What is important is the edge of the sleeving is smooth. Otherwise it will catch in the threads and the ring will be very difficult to screw down.

Awesome! Thanks for the advice. I bought a bitspower and a koolance fitting to test and play around with before I commit to a full set of fittings. It seems the koolance has very little room but sounds like you actually pushed it in passed the o-ring and the limitation was more with the threads? I was thinking I needed to put it in like 1-2mm to minimize compromising the seal. I haven't gotten the bitspower fitting yet so ill see what it is like later.

Just logged in after months of inactivity to comment on this! I subbed to this almost two years ago; I was lurking and was very pleased to see this worklog was still going.

As always, great work Lowfat. By far the cleanest rig I've ever seen, I can't get over the epic cabling thumb.gif

The sleeving just bunches up on top of the o ring. As long as the oring is still seated where it is suppose to be it shouldn't leak.

Thanks for the quick answer Lowfat. I'm still deciding on my colour scheme. Are you okay with me stealing some ideas?

Feel free. Almost everything I did in this thread, I documented on how to do it. I wouldn't have done so if I didn't want people to attempt it.
