Comparing this to all the mods on sale, from the + $150 ones to the $50 flashlights, I don't think $56 is expensive at all for this mod.

Just because you're not paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you.
Each unit is hand made one by one. The tops of the Copper are adjusted to the depth of a washer inside. Being that I do not have fancy machining tools, "depth gauges", or an assembly "plant", each internal washer depth is not the same on each pipe. One may be 4mm, next one 4.5mm, etc.
Therefore the top is adjusted according to the depth of the washer.
When the end get rounded, it is the first step in the process, this is not how Zo did it (he already had the adaptor end installed). But it is a simpler way of doing it.
To make the long story short:
I'd basicly have to start from scratch, I can't do the machining on existing Coppers, well it wouldn't be cost efective.
However, I can probably do an exchange.
I think you better contact me (those that are interested) because I believe I'm pushing the rules here as it is.
I'm a supplying modder and I'm really not allowed to "push sales" or advertise in this forum section.
Moderators, please forgive me if "I dun wrong".
Sorry Rick I will send you a message!
The original ecigs were invented as an attempt to recreate the experience of smoking a real cigarette. To do that, they can incorporate a number of electronic components and assemblies.
A basic 801 pen-style, e-cig, for example, has a battery which activates either by the pressure change you generate by drawing on it or by the sound of the air moving through it. Both automatic and manual batteries can incorporate miniature-electronic cut-off timers to save your lungs or wear and tear on the atomizer, and all of that in addition to circuitry that keeps the battery from overcharging when you plug it in and leave it on.
Pretty much all the mods out there, are attempts to strip away that complexity while providing more powerful heating to the atomizer to increase vapor volume/flavor, FAR longer battery life, or both together.
I hope that answers your question.
congratulation Rick, its so elegant and great idea to make it just mechanical without any soldering.
Pity its 160$ for post to EU, otherwise I would buy
today i have recieved the COPPER, so its 20 $ to europe - not 160; some mistake on the page calculation
have to say i am impressed by elegant idea to make e-cig mod without any wires and I like the ‘industrial look” as well , but i have to point not a very safe way of activation the atomizer. Atomizer get contact not only if you deeply press it in, but also if you slightly press atomizer at the side (kind of bending). today i realize it when atomizer get extremely hot in my pocket. So, the COPPER extremely solid, but the same time not so safe for the transportation IMHO. more kind of “home use”. or its only my model have such sensitive contact?

I really love the copper. Hope to be ordering one soon. It is definitely my number one choice for a big batt mod. The mini copper, to be more specific. Very good job designing this beauty!
I like the Copper, but keep it at home. Delivers a lot of flavor, and is indestructible. I have a few mods now, and would like to see a poll comparing the little difficulties with each one. There seems to be specific problems that crop up with each one. The Janty stick button, the Prodigy/Protoge button, the SuperT with all it's moving parts is more upkeep, etc. I like the designs with a cup under the atomizer that keeps the liquid from leaking down the sides of the mods (such as the Protoge has), as the SilverBullet gets messy.
It's always somethin.....:nun:
