    Knowing myself, I'd probably tap that hole (no pun intended) and add a screw for extra holding power!

    I was inspired by DarkZero on the shape and size of this jig





    And the next one is for a size comparison



    Btw the jig was originally made with only a 2" piece of hard wood a 5/64 drill bit a bolt, 3 nuts and plenty of supaglue
    I then decided to coat it in some stuff from the diy store that when set's it go's hard rubbery and gives a nice solid grip

    What did you coat it with? Is it like play-dough or like the rubber on an ego battery? This interests me if it is durable. Very cool idea.

    ive never had an ego battery so not sure.. but it start's out like a play-dough yeah and from the time you open the sachet you get i think 30 min's to play about with it and as it starts setting you can wet your fingers to smooth it or do pretty patterns lol...

    in my case i realised one sachet wasn't quite enough hence the two-tone just glad it didn't go pink

    its temp resistant from -50*C (-58*F) to +180*C (356*F) UV resistant and electrically insulating.(this is the reason i picked it up cus i might be able to use it to repair bits on my mod, but not sure whats a safe temp at the 510 connection is)

    the address on packet is sugru.com

    If so, how many packs did it take?

    Man, Sugru is the bomb! I use that stuff for almost everything! That stuff will bond to almost anything and has a real nice finish to it. I had used it on my magneto a while back, but I use it for alot of other things besides modding :-)

    2 sachet's ed101z but if you premade the humps where the fixing bolt and drill bit are you'd use less, maybe 1


    hey propofokgov, yeah man its awesome, it certainly had me scratching my head for things to fix or do with it I even put some on my tweezers to stop the heat coming through so much if I torch my coils & on the side of my torch lighter so when I put it down the nozzle sits facing up away from the surface
