    Can't disassemble a Smok Magneto switch

    A friend gave me a Smok Magneto today and I've tried disassembling it to clean it and make sure it's ok. The only issue is the switch won't unscrew. It's stupidly tightened up. Any suggestions?

    Hey LNB. I've tried that. It looks like it got ejuice into it and someone's tried to clean it and they've done it up tight. If there's no other suggestions I guess I may have to make a tool (wrench) to get it off... o.O

    Maybe try the 'throw it in the freezer' trick. Give it an hour or so.

    The freezer trick didn't work. I'll have to try some rubber and some vice grips... ugh...

    Give rubber gloves a go after an hour in the freezer.

    Gave it a go with a rubber gripper matt but nada... it's going to need some seriously brute force.
