Default Vase compatibility?

Ok simple question. How closely do you have to match the size of the vases? Say I want to get a replacement or just second base for a change of style or just for the fun of it. Do the two have to be the same size or is it just a matter of grommets. IN light of recent Sahara Smoke posts I have been looking at the clearance section thinking I can get the vase of my dreams or very close for less than 5 bucks but it has a 1 3/4 opening where I think mine has a 1 7/8. Would I just need to buy a grommet from them?

Seems like a grommet and/or some electrical tape could solve the problem.

Hmm these would be smaller opening for the base. Do you mean I may need tape between the stem and grommet?

I wish I just had the thing so I could look at it and see how the grommet things work.

I like the clear Syrian "ribbed" grommets... they seem to have the best interchangeability.

The black Egyptian kinds can be sanded down to fit smaller base holes.

I use Teflon plumbers tape to space out my shaft... so I dont leave sticky stuff behind when I change out.

ive got a 32'' mz and the grommets on that will fit a KM base...
but for some reason when i try to stick my stem in, it doesnt fit, it feels like the stem is too big for it

but it looks exactly the same, the grommets fits perfect alone

Measure the outside of the base part that fits in the grommet, then add atleast a 1/8" (.125) to the measurement.

Plus, if Sahara says SMALL, it means SMALL - wouldn't even fit my 22" E stem.

Grommets are nice, but paper towels, cardboard or fabric work just as well to make a good seal.
