Default New vase doesnt fit the stem

So I have a khalil mamoon trimetal and the original opening was 2 7/8" opening and bought a replacement thats 2 3/4" thinking I could take the electrical tape off below the grommet and shove it in there... I can get it on about half way but was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to get the grommet a little smaller? Sand paper? Or just shave off tiny pieces with a knife? Whats a good way to get an evenly distributed shave off that grommet to get that perfect fit? Thanks in advance

Im sure a bit of focus with an exacto knife would have you in business in no time. granted the grommet is thick enough to take some material off of it.

if you have access to a belt sander and a really steady hand you try to shave it down like that. Or you could usr sand paper but might take a while. Another sujestion ive seen is to get a mod style gasket.

An exacto knife would probably work good, just watch your fingers! lol

did you already try wetting the grommet and the vase before you tried to put the stem on it? I would try to shave it, do not try to melt it.

I would also think that maybe with some oil or something you might get it to slide on fully, but if not I would choose to shave it with a razor over melting it any day lol.

Go to your local brake shop. Put it on a lathe and turn it like you would turn a rotor. Haha. Just kidding. It probably would work, but I don't know who would let you do that.
