    Default New modder...what I've hacked/modded up so far...

    Hey folks. I figured I'd share what I've been working on lately.

    First up, GUN!


    The battery is released from the magazine release, and the slide still slides. The trigger actuates the switch too. It's a fun mod, but certainly not something to carry outside of the home.

    Second, Kraken!


    Large pipe hack that fits a huge 18650 bat. LED switch, 3A inline fuse, and a 'just in case' gas vent since I used a brass bat tube in the pipe bowl for ground contact. It is far too large to be convenient, but great to keep by my desk.

    Third/Fourth, two early pipe hacks


    These are just the first two pipe hacks I put together when I started vaping. They were great learning experiences, but still function just fine. They were originally some cheapy tobacco pipes I found on amazon

    Finally, my first free hand pipemod




    I carved the bowl and shank from mora wood and used some basic concepts from other pipemods out there. Rare earth magnets hold the battery in place. I picked up a hot spring manual button from epipemods (Matt's stuff is top notch as I'm sure you all know). I wired in a 3A inline fuse that is snap in replaceable requiring no soldering just for good measure.

    That's all for now. I'm just getting started here and have a lot of fun ideas for novelty pipes. I'll be sure to share. If you have questions, let me know! Thanks.

    Thanks for the kind words folks. I have far too many of these things now. It's too fun of a hobby to put down, but my desk is getting a little crowded. I'll post some more pics tonight of my new creations.

    If you don't have an awful mess on your table, you are not real modder!

    Again: your selfmade wooden tube is really great!

    ***NEW PIPE***

    I finished another pipe over the weekend that I really enjoy. It is an upright that stands on its own, bottom weighted. It has a wooden stem that will fit Ego type B or 801 cartos. Mechanical button again, but an inline 3A fuse (I'll post separately about these very soon..cool design that threads onto 510 fitting in-line).

    Not just a show, so if you have questions...ask away. I apologize if I don't get back quickly, but I will try and be helpful asap. Thanks.
