OP since this is an international forum wouldn't it be cheaper after shipping to contract this out locally?

Maybe. I found an add in craigslist locally for an apprentice machinist needing some work. We will see what they say.

Get some 1 3/4" or 2" OD copper tube and solder or braze an end cap on the bottom.

A good plumbing supply store will have the parts.

Use plastic to keep your costs down? And for mass production they could be molded etc. instead of machined.
