    So I just took some pictures and you can find them here, DougKirkland's albums - Imgur

    So I finally got it to fire with a flat top battery, but the battery rattle is awful and I do not feel safe at all using the mod like that. I got rid of the rattle with a button top with the screw pretty much maxed out on the spring. Is their something that I am still missing or am I just not going to be able to use flat tops without replacing the contact pins??

    Also if you look at the pictures I do have the beauty ring off if I am not mistaken.

    ketchup removes oxidation from copper so don't laugh till u try it
    You can use any cleaner you like, but chances are there is some ketchup in your kitchen!
    lol

    sorry;
    am defitely going to rub some ketchup on some copper coins to see if that does work.


    !
    then! i'll stop laughing!

    That sounds like the answer to the problem.

    You bottom spring got a bit too compressed; pull it up ; stretch it; it's not pushing hard enough on the battery for the top to make contact.

    This ring on the top is not a beauty ring, it lets you adjust the airflow and has nothing to do with the nemesis firing or not.
    TBH it looks silly with it off and that o-ring sticking out.

    The battery is not supposed to rattle, so you still got something wrong.

    Pics did wonders. You do have the beauty ring still on. It's the shiny band part of what you have as the top cap. The actual top cap is the bit you've removed, which is designed to twist about the piece you have the RDA screwed into. The 2 holes are for airflow and you twist the missing piece around to line up or cover the holes for adjustment, not that you care with that dripper.

    Try rubber gloves or those rubber jar openers or similar. Grab the bit of the top cap where the o-ring is. Grab the shiney part below the line, twist it off. Then you should be good.

    Edited your pic, hope this helps:

    Mechanical Mods are a simple ON/OFF system
    Multimeter is your friend. If you are at all mechanically inclined you can operate a Multimeter and easily troubleshoot a circuit.

    A) All contacts and threading must be clean and NOT coated in any non-conductive finish - some copper nemesis were clear coated.(bad idea)
    B) adjustments must be made to Assure everything can make contact when the switch is closed.
    Atomizer is part of the circuit - in through the center pin, through the coil, out the main body.
    Battery MUST be making good contact to top pin and Closed switch pin.

    Did you know - If you remove a bottom switch and touch the battery negative with the negative lead of a multimeter and place the multimeter positive lead on the Body of the Mod, it will read the voltage available?
    Yep, power is already available all the way back to the switch, just waiting for it to close.

    So guys I'm at work now and finally got it working. Long story short the beauty ring was seized on the onto the top connection and since I work in a machine shop I had to take two collets from a mill to get apart. Now it's vaping great and no rattle all I need to do now is get my switch a little smoother.
