    Default JonboyUSMC's Lava Tanks

    OK, I've had few PM's to make some more of my tank mods. I'm going to post up a couple of sample pics and if there is enough interest, I'll order up some materials and get to work.
    Those that don't know me, I am a master toolmaker with over 25 years of machining experience. My tanks are made with top food-grade delrin end caps, and thick walled lexan tubing. They are also 100% CNC machined, to very tight tolerances. I tried to design these to be indestructible and completely user serviceable.
    These ARE a mod, and with that said, it does take a few tools and a little mechanical experience to change the cartridge. They are a TIGHT fit, to keep them leak free. I'll say that again, they are a TIGHT fit.

    Here's some pics. The new ones will have the top cap like the one in picture #2. The one in pic number 2 is stainless steel and not for sale. That's my personal tank, and she's a one of a kind. The next batch will be made with the top cap, that will accept any drip tip you care to put on it. This also gives you the option to fill with a syringe. I don't supply drip tips, since there are so many cool ones to choose from out there.

    I sell these for $35 shipped. Like I said if there's enough interest, I'll go ahead and make 30 or 40. Send me a PM, or reply to this thread if you're interested.

    Thanks for taking the time to look,
    Jon

    What you have is very cool. On the fence about getting one.

    Also thinking about getting a lightomizer. Could these be made with a light inside?

    If you wanted to solder a resistor and LED inside, you could have a light in it. I just machine and assemble the complete unit as pictures. If your handy with a soldering iron, it would be very easy for you to add an LED in there.

    I think I'd like to have one like your personal tank!
    That being said, and please don't take offense but what makes your tanks
    worth more than the ones from M.A.P.?
    I'd like your honest opinion please.

    Cigarbabe,
    The MAP tank is $30 not including shipping. Mine are $35 with shipping included. Pretty much the same price. The MAP tanks have had a history of tanks cracking, and to date, I haven't had a tank crack yet. (Knock on wood) I'm not trying to knock anybody else's product, just stating a known fact.

    I personally own one of these tank mods made by John and I must say it is awesome and has worked flawlessly since i recieved it not to mention he has always been very quick on responding to any questions I had regarding it and shipped it very fast to me once payment was made. I definately recommend this seller if you are in the market for a map tank or something similar you cant go wrong with Johns version.
