I never cared much for the bottle caps on my respirator. I remember reading that one of the respirators was made from 2 Silvo silver polish cans that had been taped together.

Cone top cans with screw on lids are getting very hard to come by so I thought I would try it with something a little easier to find nowadays.

What I have here are two OATEY 4 ounce PVC glue cans, two 1/4 inch Flare nuts, and a 36 inch x 1/4 inch aluminum rod. So far I've spent in the neighborhood of $12.00 USD.

The cans are a bit long so I'll have to cut them down.

I used short bolts to anchor the flare nuts to the caps.
