    Disclaimer: The Woodvils are handmade, and will slightly vary in size.
    To get a good feel for their size, there are several photos available of REOs next to objects such as cigarette packs, cell phones, and such. Those photos are located in the REO Family Photos thread here: http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/general-e-smoking-discussion/152837-reo-family-photos-4.html

    For the older metal reos, the allen wrench needed to replace the spring is a .050 allen wrench.

    Posted by prophetz:
    If you ever go to a hydraulics shop to get one or more of these o-rings tell them that you need a Hercules part number 568-012 for the grand and a 568-008 for the mini. These are kind of a standard part number that most every shop can recognize!

    For the REO rba...

    Thank you Dave. I would say batteries count since their dimensions are in the numbers.

    I sure will Gil. If someone lets me know what the size of the REO Classic Woody and REO Woodvil are, I will go back and edit the original post.

    CJ, I think you have a typo on the depth of the mini, should it be 5/8"?

    Okay everyone- please add here and we'll keep an updated list:

    Wood Reo (or just REO): The original bottom feed wooden box that Rob built. It has a native 801 connection for the atomizer and uses a 3.7V 18650 battery and has a 6ml bottle for feeding the e-juice. It also has a brass colored plunger instead of a "squonk hole" found on the aluminum models.

    Grand Reo (also called Reo Grand and in some threads, the Reo Grande): The airplane grade anodized aluminum bottom feed box that is part of the Reo family of mods- it is larger than the mini but smaller than the Wood Reo...holds 6ml of fluid in a bottle and uses a 3.7V 18650 battery. It has a native 510 atomizer connection.

    Mini Reo (Reo Mini): The smallest rendition in the Reo family- style and make is the same as the Grand- airplane grade anodized aluminum. It holds a 3ml bottle, has a native 510 connection and uses a 3.7V 14500 battery.

    Woodvil Reo (or just Woodvil): The newest (at this time) of the Reo family mod- its configuration is the same as the original Wood Reo (batteries, juice bottle) but its corners are rounded and it is slightly smaller than the Wood Reo. It comes with a choice of a native 510 connection or can be made with an 801 connection and can be made with a squonk hole rather than a plunger (see Wood Reo description above)- specify your choices when you order (available soon).

    Squonk or squonking: The act (or art- it's a learned process) of pushing on the plastic bottle in a Reo to send juice into the atomizer. This term is credited to Jack Murray!!

    Blind Squonk: The act of sucking gently on the drip tip as you squonk the juice...as soon as you feel pressure in your mouth (some say, when you hear a slight gurgle) let off and that should be enough juice to vape. This term is credited to Infernia!!

    Firing Pin: The metal part above the positive post on a battery that points downward and is made of metal. It is under the plastic button you use to push down when you want to vape. The firing pin makes contact with the battery to begin the vaping process. Also known as the Positive Battery Contact.

    Noalox: The grease like substance you want to put on the tip of the firing pin occasionally so that there is a good electrical contact with the positive end of the battery. This is accomplished by gently cleaning the firing pin with some alcohol and then applying a small dab with a tooth pick.

    Flooding: When you squonk too much juice and flood the atomizer. Usually when you do this, your juice well (that's built into the Reo) has some juice in it. You can take long light draws and "burn through" the juice which should restore things or you can try blowing out (while holding the button on the Reo down) for a bit or you can take the atomizer/cartomizer off and blow excess juice out of it to restore functioning on the Reo. Continuing to flood and use the Reo typically results in a sore mouth and tongue (my experience) and tasteless juice afterwards.

    Bunckle: The positive end that juts out on a battery.

    Dirt Toss: What you do to yourself when you’re aggravated frustrated or you’re having some kind of Reo related issue (rare but effective in clearing the mind and restoring equilibrium). Also known as a “dusting.”

    Reonaut: Follower of the Reo – Usually a proud owner of a Reo or one who is about to become an owner of one.

    Reonauti: Plural form of Reonaut, a group of Reonauts….in larger numbers, they may be referred to as the Reo-Army. Also used as a Reo-slang instead or “real naughty.” LOL

    Reovangelist: A Reonaut who promotes vaping and the cessation of analogs- Convincing the analog user to stop altogether or to turn to vaping is acceptable in and of itself (no matter what vaping device is used) but some zealous Reovangelists may also promote the quick track to the Reo as a means of saving countless amounts of money and the hassles associated with dripping and other vices typically native to other countless devices used along the path to enlightenment. Certainly, the virtues of turning others away from Mall, Gas-Station and Convenience Store vaping devices is held at the core of a Reovangelist- as he/she sees those souls as those being led astray to fall back into using analogs once again. Related- Reovangelising- the act of being in the role of a Reovangelist.

    Juice Junkie: Most of us here…or if not, why are you here? We are addicted to nicotine- our nicotine comes in juice, thus the term.

    Porkies: The porcupines that inhabit Rob’s (the Reo creator) land…he feeds them bread in the evenings and there are pictures and videos of them up in the critter section of this subforum.

    Two-Fisted: The act of vaping that requires holding a vaping device in one hand and a bottle to drip with in the other- something avoided by using a Reo.

    Reonot or Reonaught.... Those who don't have or didn't get a Reo....

    RBA: Rebuildable Atomizer.

    RDA: Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer.

    LP, Low Profile: Metal bodies with a shorter catch cup profile to allow for larger RBAs.

    SL, Super Light: Milled metal bodies with slotted/punched design that is a lighter version of the originals.

    SO, SubOhm: A style of vaping where the coil in the atomizer has a resistance of less than 1Ω. This greatly increases the temperature. Not all batteries can handle the power draw required to fire these coils so please do your due diligence to make sure you are vaping safely.

    OS, Old School: A term lovingly applied to the earlier versions of the Reo, both metal and wood.

    RM2, Reomizer 2: The Reomizer is a Chinese manufactured rebuildable atomizer that has been modified to work on a REO. The Reomizer 2 is the 2nd and most recent version.
