    Amazing! Is it made of brass? Doesn't it add load to the arm connector in addition to the atty you will be using (specially rebuildables or UFS)? TIA!

    It is brass, with brass connectors. Though i do need to find a short brass 510-510 connection, as you still need a little distance form the Darwin connector, just to screw it on.

    It does a little load, but it doesnt stress the arm much if at all. It is way less than the side to side stress the arm gets when you try to put a Linev2 or v1 on it, where it causes the arm to bend outward.

    Like isaid it is only a protoype, and still working out some of it. but the concept works, and it lets me use tanks etc.

    An adapter will never be as solid as the original connector, especially on the Darwin, but until Brandon sells me a longer extension arm liek he showed inthat video, this is what im gonna go with. Way better than the Gooseneck or lleaving the arm open whiel its in your pocket. I dont fear accidntally pressing the button any more with tanks on, when i am on the go.

    Im also looking for some caps for the ends of the cross brass piece.

    I have a few other ideas, but this one was the only one i coudl make with my own lame tools

    I need an easier way to solder though, my soldering iron is not cutting it. Anyone have suggestions?

    I made something similar to this with L shaped pipe fittings. Couldn't get the solder to stick to it, so I wound up kind of making a mechanical connection and just gluing it at the time. Never used it though because it was too wide at the base. I think the easiest way is going to be press fitting the connectors in with a vice. Unless you're talking about the center posts on the connectors. If that's the case, I have no ideas lol. I know madvapes sells pre soldered connectors, but I've never tried them.

    Yeah, those connectors can be hard to do sometimes. Seems to be much easier if I load the center posts up with Ruby Flux.

    I was wondering if flux would work on this... mine solders are just solder on connectors in this version...Do you have a good source for it?

    At first I thought you were talking about soldering to the brass. Later you clarified you were just soldering wires.

    What type of soldering iron are you using? Even a cheap variable-wattage station is much better than a Rat-Shack pencil iron.

    I feel so much better after vaping a while, and I didn't think I felt bad before.
