Hi Derek, the hoop valve will be connected to the Watt controller. I use five screws for larger flanges. (aesthetics) Usually for pipe 4mm 4 screws and 8mm 5 bolts. It's my style.

Amazing work Pavel....just two questions

1. was the Blue gasket material too tough and incompressible with scale torque?.....the Straw cardboard looks torn on the edge so was softer & more suitable?

2. Is this some sort of flared tube fitting in the second image?
