End Cap broke - replacement available?
So Vamo V3 hit the basement floor, and the end cap split right at the groove. The wall thickness is only .010" so it's a poor design IMO. The grooves are not necessary and really weaken the wall.

Anyway, will we be able to but replacement end caps for this device? Right now electrical tape is holding this together. I looked into welding or brazing but it's not possible without destroying the threads.

Can't post the link and don't know if you're in the US, but smoktekdotcom sells vamo endcaps in gunmetal for cheap.

Thanks kashmoney, perfect. However since I posted this the Vamo also developed another split along the lower segment, not the fault of a drop or anything just brass that's too thin. I'm going to be returning this to FT for replacement for the second time.
