Sometimes "Old School" is better.

Took an inventory of my Excal battery pods and found that 4 out of 5 pods had a cracked end cap. In the early days when they built the Sword units the end caps had a bulk head fitting that was mounted on the end cap and you didn't have some of cracking problems that you have now. So I figured I would try and and build some of the older style end cap pods with the materials I had on hand. I had some blank 5 year old end caps that I believe came from Joe and some Ikelite 4105 bulk head fittings. I put them all together and came up with something that looks like it's going to work.
