    itaste VTR hassle

    Had the VTR for a couple of months and very happy. Suddenly the spinning 510 connection won't hold all the atomiser connection thread. Treated it gently and even so, now wont hold any thread on the atty at all. Checked using other atomisers, and no go. Currently holding with Teflon tape and an old nemesis switch magnet between to provide good earth..... what a satisfactory solution that is ?!!? NOT
    Any ideas??????? I thought about drilling out the rotating connection and inserting a threaded sleeve, but couldn't figure out how to remove the wheel (well I did think about a cold chisel and a 7 pound hammer) safely
    I really liked the mod, so much so that I just thought I'd get another, but then if its a design flaw I'd just get screwed (well not screwed really) twice.
    Help would be much appreciated,

    Here's some info. I forget the other seach terms, but there are more threads that are similar.

    Quick and dirty VTR fix

    Apparently they stopped doing them with the moving wheel, which went a ways towards stopping the issue.

    On that page with the fixes, don't do my method, I pretty much messed mine up, robs version was much better also 510 Thread Repair Inserts - Complete Set or 3 from SHOP - FatDaddyVapes.com - Home of the best vaping equipment, eliquids, and supplies!!! might be a good way,

    naa its common, the 510 socket is built really cheap and so is the spinner, the V2 VTR had the spinner issue fixed but not sure about the 510

    thanks Jeff, think I'll have a go at the fix, until the V2 has been out long enough to get an indication of the durability of the 510. In the real world of merchandising a thread that lasted less than 3 months would be a warranty issue.

    There are a couple of other threads, and someone helped me out before I traded it out:
    My VTR is Playing Up

    And whaddya know, I found the search terms that led to the other threads.. 'rotating base'. Thanks again, Avtek
