An Alternative way to repair a Cataract

I came up with this idea instead of the white foam tape in the youtube video. I used rubber foam tape it worked very well and adds a extra seal. I did use scissors and cut the rubber foam tape in half and applied it around the edge and when I put the safety glass on and pressed it on the front of the tube you could here the air come out and then the safety glass suctioned to the front of the tube and then I put a layer of clear tape around the edge it makes a real nice seal and looks good to. I used a 27 Dollar Home Right Heat Gun Pro I got on worked great this is the second cataract I have removed with it.
