I don't think that would work.

O-Rings aren't made from silicone sheets, they are made from different diameter lengths of cord that are cut to a specific length before the 2 ends are spliced together with special adhesive.

Flat o-ring seals would be a better option in various sizes, currently needing some for the Obs nano!

I know this is old now, but saw it and wanted to comment: I looked up how o-rings are made, and while you can get kits to make your own from rubber tubes, that is not how they are made commercially. They are made in different ways, like extrusion, compression molding, injection molding, transfer molding or machining. If they were glued together, that would not be safe for vaping purposes, for starters, and certainly not food safe. You can make your own o-rings from silicone, using molds, but it's not very practical, especially for small sizes. But I agree in principle, because many vape o-rings are not standard round ones and it is hard to find replacements. So being able to buy flat o-rings in various sizes would be very helpful!
