On the CR mailing list two times n the past, someone has bought a pack of these O-rings (they cost bout 2c each in quantities of 1000x), and distributed them to other R list members for the cost of a self-addressed stamped envelope. - Don Gillies an Diego, CA, USA

Thanks for the tip Don! I always figured there must be an easily obtainable standard size that would work, I just never knew what it was. Here is a place right here in Seattle that has them. http://www.oringswest.com/ I will pick some up. They have the metric equivalent too, M3.5 x 9, but they want a $50 order for any Metric size. I only have to order $20 of the standard sizes. I don't know how many that is but I bet it's a lot better than the ebay price from the UK.
