Yep, Sorry I normally do everything in metric.
Those inch things confused me.

Silence is golden but duct tape is silver.

Yeah, me too. I don't know why imperial is still even used......but all the info I've gathered is in inches and ft^3......so rather than convert, I'm just going with the flow, ha ha.

Just using masking tape and a jig saw to cut the sonotube and port to the appropriate lengths:

Well, had a grand idea for a compass to draw my circles......



Only problem is, the string winds up on itself and gets smaller and smaller.....no good!

So I built a little jig. Counter-sunk the holes so just a pencil-tip can go through....viola...any diameter I want!

The portside end caps that go IN the sonotube:




Gluing and clamping together:




Nice snug fit with the port! Not bad for free-hand with a jigsaw!

The whole port endcap assembled (dry-fit) just to see what it looks like. No sanding, no roundovers, just sitting together for the fun of it:



Its upside-down if it confuses anyone. The small bit at the top is my home-made flange that will be IN the sonotube. Should be glueing/caulking all this stuff together tonight, plus hopefully lining it with some sort of dampening material.....
