I found that eclosure the other day how clean is the print job on it
Keep in mind I'm a milled delrin kinda guy... Haven't been impressed with a3dp yet.
I'd say it's passable... The feel doesn't inspire confidence. Obviously made with a lesser material like ABS on a DIY'er printer rather than nylon on a 6 figure SLS machine
Sweet deal dude, jump!
Remember those matchy-matchy possibilities!
(Your enabler here
...but then again you have a TLF to go nutso with)
I picked the gold one up from Breazy first thing for Black Friday, was $67 shipped .. arrived today (fast!) with a surprise 120ml of Fuggin.
But I'm going to wrap it up and put it under our tree, will be more fun with some time over Christmas.
Just need to get a tree first!
That is the caviar edition B2K on the Minimal. So nice. Single .3 ohm coil.
the Mojo from 67 is really nice with it's carbon printing. Evade's Nude is a nice looking 3D printed mod
Good lookin out dude.
My friend sent me that link too, I picked up cotton candy and my brother went with vanilla custard. Nice to be able to try some new juice risk free eh?
could always grab Blue Dot's 1 cent sample pack
I've almost tried them but I'm a bit hesitant when juice websites use stock photos for their flavors and their labels look like prescriptions. Any good?
Wanted to share with my fellow squonkers what I have been up to lately.
Just finishing up a 8 mod run. with most being custom ones I have never done before so ran into some unique problems that caused them to be delayed longer than I anticipated. So very sorry to the people who requested them.
I also discovered that photographing dyed wood is more of an Art than I ever knew. I even built a light box to try and aid me with mixed success. I know it is probably my camera but a new one is not in the cards at the moment. It still amazed me tho that even a slight adjustment to light source or object could photograph so differently and still not agree with what my own eyes are seeing . I added some extra pics using same white background in light box to show you what I mean.
One of my customers wanted me to transfer a DNA regulator board into a custom mod. Unfortunately the board arrived to me DOA. So could not do. They still wanted a mod made but left it up to me on what got built. So I made 4 for them to choose from. Once they decide which one they prefer I will then put up the remainder for sale in the new/old Trading post section. (Yea I am back baby!)
First up are 2 18650 mech squonkers with custom switch. 1 dyed yellow and black in birdseye maple. Came out more gold color. And 1 dyed blue in curly maple hard to photograph.
Next a 20700 mech squonker with custom switch dyed orange in curly maple
And finally one that I am exceptionally pleased with how it turned out.
A dual 18650 squonker with an OKL-T/20 regulator board (Think HexOhm V2) up to 110 watts. Dyed with yellow ,orange and red. In a major sunburst pattern. Was not able to identify the wood. and only had enough to make this one.
This next one was strictly custom request. Here is what they wanted a single 20700 squonker with a switch on flat side for thumb fire. and other side rounded with squonk hole. Dyed purple with sunburst pattern. In curly maple. Because switch and bottle were on opposite sides had to make this a mosfet mod. and installed a black switch as per customer request. I think I hit all the requests. Another one very hard to photograph.
I will add the last 3 later on.
Please let me know what you Bonkers think.
Milk of the Poppy
Agree on both.
Similar carbon printing on the Steam Bully / Steam Rabbit & the TLF V2.
Probably the most solid print finish I've experienced is the Bolt V2.5 alumide. Ended up selling it though, got too many at one time and let some go. Kept my alumide Runt instead since I got it with silver contacts.
With all the options out there now, the 3D printed stuff is on its way out for sure except for a handful of the popular brands.
yeah, people finally figuring out that Delrin is really the way to go. Even Stabwood is getting to good prices
It's a cheap 3D printed mod using a cheap Wanhoa 3D printer, with a ModMaker 510 and a DNA 75c shipped to my door for $150 Canadian dollars.
In comparison, I'd love to get a BAM from Turbocad. That mod would cost me about $500 Canadian.
I am just waiting on the Titanium Coppervape dual battery.
kinda tempted to try and get a Le Supersonic when those drop
I know yer joking but kinda along the same lines... Boru Vape is doing a funding campaign on IndieGoGo for a parallel dual 18650. Hasn't gone live yet but they sent me the teaser pics.. looks pretty shmexy.
In theory I'm all over that but we'll see how I feel come December 20th.
Lots of traveling and expenses in 2018 but I know if I don't pounce, it'll be too late.
Realistically it's completely foolish ..but then again I am too most of the time.
Nice to see ya back in action!
I agree 100%! For the price it can't be beat. Unassembled i got the dna75c kit shipped to USA for $105usd
Beautiful as always sonar505

Thanks glad I am back and able to post in Trading Post again.
Thank you SteelDriver. Kind words appreciated as always.
I've got 2 bodies on the way from printer, one in nylon, other in alumide. Both printed on SLS machines. I did have an alumide print from shapeways that i wasn't that impressed with but not necessarily the material/print rather the design...
That sunburst is pretty special
Thanks DogMan. Yea after sanding I liked the way the figure looked. and it kept popping in my head that it was the rays of the sun. So went with it and as I said am quite pleased with the way it turned out. I know that not everyone will agree with what I consider beautiful. (But as we all know I am always right and anyone who disagrees with me must be wrong)
Yep just pulling legs on that one.
however as for dual battery sqounkers...
Decided to just stay with the Dripbox 160.
It just works pretty well and can change juice or batteries without one interfering with the other.
And really have no use for a dual battery mech squonk mod anyway.
lol didn't think they could fit it into one of those bubble mailers but that's what Lightning Vape sent my Daedalus in
Just grabbed the new Hotcig/Rig Mod 80w squonk mod from Vapordna.
$79.99 minus 20%, code Cyber20
Damn I love cybermondays.
Beautiful work sonar.Love that purple mosfet.I may have to commision one like that from you someday soon!
Thanks Zaxxaz. Anytime you are ready. Now that I have done one. The next should go a hell of lot easier and faster.
What is the ballpark $$$ for one like that? Also,have you thought about trying the switchfet v2 from Modmaker? Would probably save you some space in the mods.
For a 20700 with mosfet in that shape. or with you providing the switchfet I charge $70 and can dye any color with a poly finish or use exotic wood and a wax/oil finish.
Just got my shipping notice from nicotine river. It says total weight is 27 pounds. Might have went overboard a little or it’s a misprint. Dam Black Friday
Great price as always. I'll get in touch when I'm ready and we can discuss options then.

Which mod is this? Thanx
VG/PG is heavy in bulk, got a gallon of VG a while back was something like 16lbs lol. It’s awesome to look at a gallon and know that’s pretty much a whole gallon of juice (more after nic and flavor). What makes you feel better about the purchase is calculating how many thousands of dollars worth of liquid you have at vape shop prices
There will be plenty of pics of that purple beauty once I receive it!
My Thanksgiving present to myself! Diggin it, great build quality, and water proof chip to boot. I know you will like it!
Hmm, still trying to find my perfect regulated road rig - first impressions???
Analog box mods DNA75C 3d printed squirt mod. Come as a kit. You assemble, or send a note and have it assembled for you for another $30 or so... Doubt you could buy the separate components w/o the body for much less than he's asking. Seller is super quick with answers to questions. That goes a long ways in my book. Highly recommended from my limited experience
You do some AMAZING work!!!
Sonar is an artist
Yep nice work.
That heaviness is why I always get PG/VG from Amazon, so I get the free Prime shipping.
Yep even with the recent Essential Depot sales the Amazon Essential Depot PG/VG is cheaper and free shipping for Prime members.
Need to order another Gal of PG and VG soon plus an extra liter of PG.
IKR? I wish to hell Amazon sold nicotine!!!
I wish they sold vape stuff.
I am good with the nic in my freezer for the rest of my life.
I thought i was... but now with the spawn vaping too, and he's at 5mg, I'm thinking I should get another liter.
@AndriaD @JuicyLucy @The Cromwell Thank you all very much for the kind words. They are very much appreciated.
This is my 1st regulated squonker too though I do have many non-squonk regulated mods. First impressions are that it is very well made, high quality, water proof chip squonker. Came with 2 bottles, silicone and less soft plastic, both good quality bottles, as in they don't leak. You can turn off the led rgb light. It has a good amount of weight to the mod, but I don't think that it is too heavy that it won't get carried, it's tiny. About the same size as a PhantOhm mech just a mm or so wider. I plan on using it as an everyday carry mod, but will still carry one of my Noisey Crickets as back up. Noisey Cricket has spoiled me, have yet to find any mod that hits the way it does. I have 14 mech squonkers that may be taking a shelf nap while I put the RSQ through it's paces. I picked mine up at VapeHappy on the 22nd and got it today, very pleased with it so far.
