      Thanks for the reply. Flattened tube--even simpler and less work. I never thought of that. And for cigar tubes I won't have to worry about getting the aluminum to accept regular solder.

Has anyone tried starting with a cigar tube or 5.56mm (.223) ammunition casings? I bet there are a couple of members here that have used a cigar tube as an above water steam jet. I am not sure what the cross section of a spent asthma inhaler or CO2 cartridge looks like or if it would be more work added than saved to try to use one of these.
