Too save on space posted the page link. Mark oof end's with calipers. place clamp on mark and use hack saw. When saw gets too the bolt now use a xacto blade. now I insert a strip for the ends to glue too. cut end-caps a bit larger from flat sheet and glue. When dry use supper glue on strip and slide into place.(Before glue dries) When all glue is dry sand the ends all most flush with tanks/bottle. if need too Fill gaps with filler re-sand and refill missed gaps or low spots (Note) Neck end of bottles are a bit thicker than bottom. If the sheet is then glue 2 sheets or rounds together. this is the way I do it. s42.photobucket.com/user/cla_077/library/master%20parts%20f?sort=6&page=1

I find it to be much faster & easier to keep a stock of Evergreen & Plastruct tubing on hand. No need for trying to square up an end after whacking thru it with a hack saw & it can all be glued with normal liquid cement. The material that those pill bottles are made of is incompatible with all other normal kit type styrene's.
Seems like you are pushing a big rock up a hill. Plus, Plastruct offers domed ends in all diameters to fit right on there tubing.
