Question Searching for toroid parts


I am searching for cups to pot diy toroid chokes.
Does anybody know where I can order them?
What kind of material should I use to pot the toroids?
Any kind of help or hint is welcome.

How large are the cores?

I've heard of people using the caps to aerosol spray-paint cans before,for smaller toroids...And ABS/PVC 'end caps' for larger ones.

Some ABS Stuff

You could use a coffee or soup can. Emptied out and cleaned of course!

As far as what to use for potting, I'm pretty sure most companies use a 2 part mix. We use something at work that looks very similar to the potting in the center of Plitron toroids and it is a 2 part mix that cures fully in about 24 hours. I believe it is made by Loctite. Alternatively, you could use some kind of epoxy.
