Default Restrictors for Sage Vario

Anyone have any ideas on alternate restrictors for a Sage Vario? The usual sources don’t have them.

Thanks,
CM

Bond a tiny tube like (hyperdermic needle) into a barbed fitting.
It's fun to experiment with the size of the tube. I turned one Winter mechanical into an averager with one botched restrictor.

We used to put sections of pipe cleaner (center wire with fuzzy stuff on the outside) in the line to damp the motion if it was too jumpy.

You can even color code to match the function. :-)

It would be nice to have a cigarette up at base after a low save
Maybe I could put a ashtray on my panel next to the beer holder.
Would it be dangerous to smoke while using a nasal canula? Or should I just turn the O2 off while smoking? Gotta think safety first.
