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.
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 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.
