    I still need to finish up the programming for the 1.25 comfort, produce 1.25 comfort tips, purchase bubble bags, take picture and set up all of the web pages so they can be purchased. After that is finished there should be a few for sale. Then I will make the 1.0" core/comfort tip and run another batch. Once all of the core sizes are complete I will make the ming, vase, genie and reo styles

    With the current tool wear the price will increase about another $0.40 and should be the final price.

    It is cool to see someone else making them
    Back in December 2012 on nu-vapor I posted "I also would like to start a thread about ecigs and lathes for tech purposes. I think it would be great to have a place to talk shop as people begin to turn ecig mods. Hopefully the new tech thread will get more interest from turners and help them with their hobby."
    I have yet to make detailed instructions or start the thread on how to make them, but it is still on my long to do list.

    I think ebay has relaxed their rules a bit. I'm seeing plenty of hardware auctions lately. I think maybe juice is the only thing they don't allow....Lewis, any chance you've trademarked or applied for patents?
    $529, maybe he accidentally posted the wrong price. If he sells them for that he will be the second turner I know of to make decent money turning ecig products. The first is Bull Box Mods using the version 3 LG drip tip design.

    I don't get any trademarks or patents as I turn for a hobby and make $10-$15per hour. This is the average rate that turners make selling products like pepper mills, pens, razors, etc. When I started to turn ecig mods instead of raising the price just because they were popular and had a limited supply, I kept the same rate so more people would be able to afford them.

    It is really to bad that paypal, ebay and other companies have tried to stop the sale of ecig products. In the end we can still purchase ecig products, but vendors are forced to use more expensive means of payment which raises our prices. I guess I will never understand politics.

    It sold for 325.00 on auction.
    This is the day the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it!

    Much better price than $529. It is good to see you around again. How have you been?

    Hey Lewis I'm doing pretty good. I've been in a pretty good battle with throat cancer since Christmas but doing better now. I just dropped by to admire some of your work.

    Sorry to hear about the cancer. It is good to hear that you are doing better now and I hope it stays that way.

    Thanks Lewis. I went through surgery, radiation and chemo. I go back to Seattle the end of June for more tests and see how I'm doing.

    That is a lot to go threw, I can't even imagine. I pray that they got it all and your tests turn out well.

    A update on the progress.
    I finished up the programming for the 1.5", 1.25" and 1" comfort tips. 1000 bubble bags showed up today. I still need to get labels, take pictures and create the web pages.

    This evening the lathe made six 1" comfort tips and I didn't have to edit any programming. It was great to see it just do its job so I could do mine.

    Nice job Lewis. Can't wait to see the new tips.

    Life is short, bend the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, live passionately and never forget anything that made you smile.
