    couple more DIY tutorials

    Posting cause I think this guy is a bit under rated in many ways and could be convinced to post more and do more tutorials

    Sure he waffles a bit but he gets excited about what he is doing and can be hard not to like - The last mod is prolly my favorite

    "How do you know Iím mad?" said Alice.

    He doesn't do a bad job, although I dunno why he needed to go to all that trouble just to use an iStick mini board which is VV only and gets very unhappy with low resistance. I have one I use when I'm out metal detecting for a couple of hours. It's light and easy to keep in the top pocket without it falling out every time you bend over but it's pretty limited otherwise.

    About the 3min in the first part of the iStick video (which is just chatting) he explains he does it for the love of modding and maybe getting others interested as well as having something just unique .. I think for him its more about making something rather than big performance

    Caught my eye in part cause its simple but pretty and b) Its prolly not as advanced as some tutorial peeps out there and c) he really seems to enjoy what he is doing




    Lol but in all fairness there is this tutorial on the DNA 200 which is popular and has good reviews

    Fair point. I must have missed that part.

    I went through the making my own stage about 3 years back. I didn't realise until a few weeks ago just how much shit I accumulated while doing it. 510 connectors, assorted leds, switches, half-finished mods, copper and brass bits, you name it! And then these was the home-made carto tanks!

    What got me started was the lack of reasonably priced options back then. These days there's so much choice available I'm kinda *Meh* about the idea of starting again.

    OMG! Home made carto tanks? That can be done?

    You know I have been looking for articles or videos to post here on how to do your own atties - but they are hard to find - if you get the inkling can you please post something up if you have the time

    I always admire people who can - I do ok with art but the practical not so much - agree that it is cheaper and easier to buy atm

    But who knows maybe there is a budding craftsperson out there who just needs a lead so they can take the vaping world by storm

    I made the tanks from a length of the tube from a 20ml syringe. The caps were two of the silicone plunger caps with holes punched with an old carto. Rustic, but worked fine.

    Not sure about making atties. I guess it wouldn't be too hard to make a functioning dripper with basic tools but I doubt the outcome wold be worth the hassles.

    I've made about 15 atties ... as far as I know, there are no videos showing how to DIY. I doubt any manufacturer would show you either, and it would be a boring watch

    Much harder to DIY atties in comparison to box mods, for a starter you need to buy and know how to use specialised machinery (which depending on the design could include a lathe and a mill). Material selection is far more important too. And you actually need to know what constitutes a good design, especially if it's yours
