    HELP! KFL+ base stuck on my Istick 30w

    Hi Guys,

    I need help or suggestion about my KFL+ base is stuck on my Istick 30w.

    I can't really turn my KFL+ base to take it off, i think the problem is the airflow control screw has backed up and its preventing me to turn the base off since it's hitting the airflow fin on the Istick 30W top base.

    I can only turn it counter clockwise for a couple of mm's before its stuck.

    I dont know what to do....

    Put a small nail in the airhole to use as a lever. You'll probably end up scratching the connector but it will come off.

    Can also try getting a very thin piece of metal in there to wind the screw in if you're able to get any clearance at all under the tank (have a guess as to how I found that out with the kayfuns :P )

    To clarify - the airflow grub screw is cut across the entire length so on either side are the holes for where the screwdriver goes - I was able to get a small piece in there and into one of the holes in order to wind the screw in a smidge without having to wreck my mod

    A clothes pin - you need something small and with a point or edge on it to get into the edge of the flathead opening on the side of the grub screw to wind it very slowly and delicately (if you're using a pin, you don't want to slip and stab yourself)

    edit - a small paperclip or staple may work also - not sure on the staple for length as you'd need to bend it a bit first - might be too fiddly with no finger grip
