    Prototype Vapouriser Stand

    I introduced vaping to a friend of mine who happens to be a design engineer. I mentioned to him my idea of building/buying a quality stand/holder for my vaping gear. My friend suggested he may be able to machine something at work so we worked on some designs together.

    I am now the proud owner of the prototype below. It's not polished or finished in any way. It's a machined protype produced from a solid billet of aluminium. There are a couple of improvements needed right away: you can see the chamfer slightly protrudes into the outside holes and the holes themselves probably need a 14.5mm diameter, rather than the current 16mm. Minor things easily fixed. Remember, what you see is just a prototype.

    We are now toying with the idea of producing a limited run of these for sale - maybe individually serial numbered. Aluminium, Stainless Steel, Brass might be the options. In fact, my friend has said he can make me another prototype out of brass with 2 holes of about 22.5mm for the 2 Caravelas I have on order. Oh yes, I can't wait.

    Anyway, we'd appreciate some comments just to gauge the potential interest. Not sure on what the price would be at this stage.

    Nice, neat and functional. Its a nice piece of work, but are there any plans to upgrade the size to accommodate the Provari size mods?
    Because I trust no-one Who tells me FACTS with no proof

    You should do one the same diameter as a can so it can fit into a car drink holder.

    Neat, functional... that's exactly what I was after.

    Apparently, any unit can be accomodated. It's just a matter of knowing what diameter to drill. I was surprised at how heavy and stable the aluminium one is. The stainless steel or brass will obviously be even heavier.

    As soon as I get my brass one for my future Caravelas, I'll post some pics!

    Yep, i agree bigger holes to accommodate larger mods.
    Some deep engraving on that front face would look nice too imo.
