    Here is my VV Passthru. I used a LM2596 DC-DC step down regulator. it is a simple, plug and play kind of regulator but it can handle a whomping, although it is a tad big in comparison to others. The mod runs on a 15v 5amp laptop cord, and goes to a stompbox with foot switch, voltage regulator, and led display. this can sit on the floor or on the armrest of the chair or whatever. The potentiometer (voltage knobby thingie) is accessed by screwdriver through a small hole. The kicker on this this mod is that it is operated by any mod that accepts an 18650 and has some kind of hole to run a wire through. I used a piece of a rake handle milled down to the size of an 18650 and put battery contacts on it. here it is with my reo grand. The foot switch just turns on the power source, then you use the reos switch to use it.

    Here is also a bottom fed mod wood mod I made. now this was built with 100% intention of being like the reo woodvil. I respect Rob and his mods completely and looove reos, and this is in no way shape or form as good as a reo, and would never reproduce something like this for another person, but since this was made for me and me alone... anyway, this thing works pretty well, it was my first mod of any kind so... yeah its not perfect. There is also a pic of it attatched to my vv passthrough.

    NICE!

    Is the stomp box really a foot switch, or an esoteric electronics thingy? Cause a foot switch for your VV passthru would be SO cool!! hands free voltage changes would be SWEET!

    Your wood mod is beautiful!

    Thank you CES the stomp box is a on/off footswitch. You stomp it when you want to vape and the power source will stay on until you stomp it again, that way i can leave it plugged in and it won't ruin the chip or display by continuous running. unfortunately I have to change voltages with a screwdriver, but I really only change voltages when I switch atties or juice. The wood mod is made of black walnut from a 150 year old tree fell on my family farm. I helped my brother cut it down and cut it up because it was dying and leaning toward the overseers house and he had it milled out. I have the stump and I need to mill it and air dry it so it will be ready in summer to do some building. Black walnut stump has some awesome grain.

    Wow! that makes the wood mod incredibly special!! talk about making it from scratch

    I still like the on-off foot switch, even if you can't use it for completely hands-free vaping. It's cool that you set is up like a battery- so that you can use it with any PV with an appropriately sized battery compartment

    My new bottom fed rebuildable atomizer. This is built from a RCA plug and an HH357 atomizer. It features some of the parts from the 357, including the coil (because I don't have my kanthal and wick yet.) I have to give a whole lot of the credit to meatsneakers for the complete tutorial on building this. It wasn't easy but the next one will be

    fixing to make me a pipe mod soon I have a pipe stem, a churchwarden style stem. I am going freestyle on it, so it will be interesting to see what I come up with . I am thinking of making it a carto tank pipe, that hides the carto tank under a wood "sheath" for lack of a better word. I am pretty sure it will run on dual 18650s, stepped down with variable voltage regulator. the top of the pipe bowl would be made of tinted material (piece of old sunglass lens) with a voltage readout. so in a dark area it would almost simulate burning of tobacco in a pipe bowl. I have high hopes for this pipe, I hope I dont let myself down

    That sounds like it'll be really cool Sammy! Can't wait to see it.
