    Thanks. I like the way they look with a poly finish. But still prefer the way they feel when I use a wax/oil finish. Unfortunately I have found that if I do not seal in the dye. It can bleed off unto my hands even months later. And yes I know about drying oils like Boiled Linseed Oil. but do not like the way they change the colors of the dyed mods. Still looking and experimenting tho.

    I ordered one as soon as you mentioned "waterproof chip"
    Is the 510 spring loaded?

    No offense I Was unsure which mods you build. Getting old and have CRS.
    But I remember that you make good mods.

    I plan on playing with making Stab wood in the near future.
    Have a vacuum pump and chamber and a nice shop toaster oven for the curing.
    I use the toaster oven for powder coated small stuff.
    Been picking out some burls from my firewood pile.

    Yes it is, I've only tried the Armor 1.0 though, seems like most atties should all fit unless really long.

    So far so good though I just got it today, put a fresh Sony VTC6 in on a .33 build and it is still kicking after 3 hours or so. I'm really spoiled having used a Noisey Cricket as my daily carry for the last 2 years, so I'm not the best judge of battery life in a regulated mod.
    P.S. I just swapped out my batteries and one of the huge magnets came off the door and stayed stuck to the battery. Not that big a deal, little crazy glue and it's good as new. This has the largest door magnets I've ever seen.

    Look forward to seeing what you produce. I too have started gathering the parts to make some stab wood . Trying to find an affordable to me vacuum pump. My experiments with hand vacuum pumps have been less than successful so far. but I continue on.

    1 pint = 16oz X 2 = 1 quart X 4 = 1 gallon thus 1 gallon = 8 lbs

    Didn't you pick her a blue RSQ? Perhaps you could mix things up a bit or maybe she really loves blue.. ?

    That green just makes me want to jump on a kawasaki supersport and break the sound barrier. Looks so nice with that matching tip.

    @snake94115 , not to rain on your parade or anything like that, but do you feel comfortable with mech. mods? Most of the ones you've been making goo goo eyes at are mechs. Please make sure you feel at ease with them before venturing any capital. Just a friendly suggestion.

    Nothing spectacular for regulated squonkers, that's for sure

    Still waiting for somebody to come up with a decent regulated squonker for long distance travel -

    Was considering that MVP deal on the hotcig rig, but kinda vowed would not spend more than $50 on any mod that isn't exactly what I need

    Here is what I would settle for regulated-wise: a Wraith that doesn't fall apart

    They were perfect for flying. Pull out the bottle, put the cap on it and put the bottle in the stupid ziplock baggie for liquids for carry on

    Before landing, you pop it back in the mod and you are ready to fog up the nearest bathroom

    Coulda lived with the Therion, but the battery life is so poor that it is seriously impractical for being on the road

    There hasn’t been any deals on Facebook. Not even larger mod batches (tho JB Woodworks looks like he’s got a decent supply for this week).


    Only cool thing I saw was a limited edition Da Vinci mod on sale. Was a black skull for 160 euros (30 euros off)

    Yeah, I would have bought one otherwise. You know, at work I vape my Pulse and Inbox equally. I get about the same battery life out of both and only have the Inbox at 35 watts. Pretty much the same build in both. Put the batteries in the charger and they are reading about the same volts.

    Just saw your edit.

    You know davinci are just up market clones, right?

    I'm fine with clones, but not €200 clones

    The Inbox is okay - but it sux for airplanes and twice while traveling shoved it in my pocketbook w/o turning it off and the firing button got easily pressed and went off and didn't know until the smell of burned cotton wafted through the air :eek:

    Love my mechs, but not always practical on trips, like the one I'm taking next month

    I hear you about the Inbox. Thought the RSQ was going to be what the doctor ordered. But when the goddamn magnets fall off the first day, hmmm

    That didn't scare me too much - though that is kinda janky for right out of the box, lol

    I only use regulated squonkers for traveling - on my home turf am strictly a mech girl

    Sometimes I use mechs on the road, but if I think maintenance might be a hassle to squeeze in I leave them at home

    Close your eves and pretend the Pulse is made out of Delrin. That little fucker is awesome. I'd take it anywhere. Regulated squonkers worth a shit are in short supply at the moment.

    I have 36 awesome mech squonkers - but they all need maintenance at the wrong time if you don't keep up, lol

    Heck, when I know I'll have free time at night on trips, I like to travel with CVs - they are a super-good choice for airplanes because their bottles also cap. No mess ever.
