    Yes. It's the corrected link in both my posts.

    ...and the updated part is about a buck cheaper for some reason. Gotta love that.

    Also, mcmaster is good about not raping customers on the shipping. No charge for sticking a packet of o-rings in an envelope with a stamp it seems.

    $7.20 shipped for 10 of the o-rings. Should be a lifetime supply or thereabouts.

    Hmm I just re-read the first post. You got 50 of 'em for $6usd? Sounds like a much better deal than mcmaster at $7.20 for 10 of them. Oh well, I'm not gonna cancel. It's only $1.20 and as I said, 10 is already a lifetime supply.

    @DandyDon it might not be a bad idea to include a link to your source down under in that first post as well.

    No, I paid $12 for 2 sent from Australia, hence $6 each. Edited. So you got 10 for $7.20? Cool. That might be a lifetime supply for me changing every year, but aren't you younger than me. I added the source of my label.

    I just ordered from the link you guys provided. Thank you! :) It looks like it will get here before I leave for my trip so taking a spare is even a bonus. :)

    Remind me - what's an appropriate grease to use on buna/nitrile o-rings? I don't want to use the MCG111 since that stuff is so expensive if I need to cover that much surface area. For Shearwater o-rings that are tiny, sure.....this thing is huge. What's an acceptable alternative?

    Thanks.

    I use silicone grease from a hardware store. Good for my 4C lights as well and my mustache.

    This is the same stuff, but in case you'd prefer in a diver package, Trident offers a 2 oz tub: Silicone Grease - 2oz 6641657080317 | eBay

    I use silicone lube I got from swimming pool store. I forget what I paid, it's a big tube that I've had for several years. I use some trident o2 lube for o-rings in my regs.

    FYI my o ring order shipped. $7.20 for 10 and then shipping was $7.38 to me in California.

    Check your credit card charges.

    I hate companies that don't quote shipping charges before you order, but they do answer emails quickly. I was advised that shipping would be about $8.

    Ok, so you can order 2 from Hdvseatek for $12, or 10 from McMaster-Carr for $15 for now.
