    Yes.. I just done one on a newer adjustable 510. With the top end facing you turn the nipple to the right to loosen. Needle nose plyers will work good.

    Tighten it up to the left till good and tight.

    You won't be abe to move the contact pin once it's snug so you should find something to place under the contact tip to hold it just right before snuggling it up.

    My atomizer is slowly but surely dropping down, on my Woodvil. Oh I don't want to have to put super glue on there. Anyone have photos on that?

    If your brass well is loose you will have to . The glue goes on from the inside of the mod . flip the mod up side down . Put some glue were the brass touches the wood it will soak into the wood . Let it dry for 5 minutes you will be good to go

    Glue will hold! Done that to one of mine and I've read of a few others that's it's happend to. There glued in originally so it will be as good as new afterwards with no signs of ever a problem. ;)

    I am afraid I won't have it set right, then it will be stuck!

    You will have enough time to set it flush.

    Though I'm sure rob is willing to do the job for you if needed.

    I know Rob would fix it for me. I don't want to be without it though. Maybe a short video, or a picture step by step would be best.

    Well the Woodvil bit the dust today. Dang it. I put in some new wick, and replaced the inner ring to the Derringer clone. Then I heard a slight click. That was not good, I knew. Pulled out the meter, and I have no power. This Woodvil is used EVERY day. I am in panic mode.

    No idea what could go wrong in a 2015 woodvil other then a broke Contact pin or the spring shorted and collapsed.

    Sounds like since u replaced rhe center ring on the atty it shorted the mod?

    No, I don't think the mod shorted. The atty has been slowly falling lately. I think it is because of the ring on the Derringer, and then you have to push down on the top cap, before you use it. The ring goes on over an o-ring. The top cap goes on over another o-ring. Maybe the sound I heard was the glue crack. I did not hit the fire button when the slight noise happened. The spring did not drop, or anything like that.

    Since you have your meter try testing all points to know where it is failing. Pay attention of not firing a hard short.

    Well I looked at it again. If that wire is soldered on to the bottom of where the atty screws in, it is quite possibly broken there. (I don't know what you call that piece) Either that, or it is the glue that cracked. I think that is a solder point though, it is right at the base of the atty base, brass colored. I am going to have to send it to Rob I guess. Oh I cannot believe this.

    I don't have any answers...just offering support. Do you have a back-up that can get you by? I can attest that Rob repairs stuff as fast as any action hero.

    Yeah prob the solder joint broke when the 510 pulled out.
    Sounds like it's time to replace that atty with something smaller and one that the lid comes off easier.

    I've yet to have the 510 pull up from pulling a atty top. Only when I dropped a woodvil.

    Rm2 screws on.
