DIY Bubble counter

Hello,

I am trying to construct a bubble counter out of a glass tube from a boiler. Much like [Ebay Link Removed] [/URL]tube. Basically i need something that will connect the glass ends to 6ml tubing from the regulator and to the tank, with an NRV to stop water travelling down to the regulator. I was thinking something that would go over the glass and i could use clips or something to hold it in place. im Not very mechanically experienced.


Thanks for reading!

Perhaps the tubing when heated would bind to the glass ends.

I have come up with a way to reduce the 12mm glass tube to 6ml airline. Pictures to follow
