    Does anybody know what the scoop is about the 510 key threads between the authentic and the SXK?

    I want a spare, but don't have 25 or 30 bucks for one or a whole internal panel set.

    I'm getting conflicting stories. Somebody says that the SXK clones once had different threads than the authentic and another says the authentic once had different threads and the SXK's have not changed.

    A guy on Reddit who is a long time authentic only guy sold me one and it doesn't fit in my SXK. Wrong threads. However I have a JMK hybrid brass drip tip made for the authentic and it fits perfectly.

    It would be just fabulous if somebody could demystify this for me.

    JMK is the only one I know that fits both... the Authentic and SXK etc. Have a different thread pitch.

    Are you saying that JMK makes a separate DT for each? How could they have different threads and one piece that fits on both? I'm not being argumentative at all. I'm just trying to understand.

    The threading on the JMK tips is somehow compatible with both. There aren't seperate tips for the authentic and the SXK. I think the threading they use is a little thinner by nature. I don't know the particulars but that's my guess.

    Thought I had with the talks of BB jmk tips fitting clones. Should the SXK top nut thread directly into my authentic?

    Nope. JMK tips are somehow the only product that works on both the authentic and the authentic.

    Maybe I worded wrong. The gold SXK kit I just got. Everything fits my BB exact. Should the top nut fit being SXK and my billet authentic?

    Then I'm confused as to which model BB I have. BB Rev 4 40 no logos. SXK stuff fits. But I was under the assumption it was authentic. I like it either way but now confused.

    Oh maybe it does then? Your BB is most definitely authentic. It's an early Rev4A and I don't think they did engravings right off the bat.
    Maybe someone who knows more than me can chime in!

    Ha ha I have no doubt it's authentic coming from you. One of the highest end dudes I know. Well what would the FF plates go for? The orange ones I got from you. I have it set up how I want it now and don't need those plates..

    Looks like I might stick...Steven changed his date:
    - ANY NONE-MEMBER OR MEMBER AFTER 25 AUGUST WILL BE REMOVED FROM THIS WINNERS LIST.

    Saw your name on the list....would think that list would have been scrubbed prior to post...(?) You might stick as well..(?)

    Check this little fucker out! Hobo Drifter with a single 29g Ni80 2mm ID. Comes out to 1.4 ohms and with the single airflow closed down 2/3 of the way its producing a SICK little MTL vape.
    Now to find a BF pin and get my remaining squonker up and running

    Oh and the new bases for the SXK bridge came. Drizzle coil loaded up perfectly. Just waiting to see if it leaks before I put up my Ohman EUCapsule and MF Bridge Full Kit for sale. [​IMG]

    @BrewBear looks like they are working out some formatting on the Haku site... but should be within a day or two when I will be able to check the Xeta out for ya...

    From their mouths... the items are already at the hubs...BUT they also said today this...

    upload_2019-8-26_13-48-58.png

    Yeah, I was actually #1 on the list of 450 LOL

    Anyway I updated my account info, and messaged Steven about the issues his site is having pertaining to FB Identity...

    For example, my FB link directly to my profile is facebook.com/dc.glidden3 but his site doesn't allow the addition of any characters outside of the regular 26 alphabet... so I just added Don Glidden *shrug

    Either way... 24-48 hours I'll PM ya the total.
