Just found in work a few bits of piping that may be of use to a torch builder as a battery housing.

Black pipe, circa 1cm wall (i.e. incompressible!) and about 10cm internal diameter - half meter of (could make 2 battery holders?). Very similar to the larger Halcyon pack....

Also a blue version, but internal dia of circa 15cm so it's seriously big!

All you'd need to do is figure a way of sealing each end - with a lathe you could turn a screw thread into either.

Let me know if I should half-inch it for you.

Payment in GBP - Great British Pints

Got until Friday morning to let me know.

Drifty, I would keep the big one for a scooter, if I were you. Put two canisters side by side and you should have enough space for some good battery capacity.

If you get working on it let me know.

Cheers
Lawrence

Hello Drifty,
First thing to start with is to check which material the pipe is made of. If its PVC it will be the easyest material to gule. I think the way to go is to make a 10mm thick canister cap using outer pipe diameter for top diameter and pipe inside diamter for cap bottom. Then use SS clips to close.
