    I normally do this in a vacuum at a pressure of 10 atmospheres, with heat supplied by a proton beam mounted on a robot arm, computer controlled via a satellite link

    btw, is this how those 'ship in a bottle' things are made? Shrink a bottle arpund the ship?

    Nope, it's quite fascinating to see someone build one. Special long stem tools and tweezers. I have seen ship in a bottle ones that are for people that have less patience to do that. I believe they split open or have a back opening. But the true ship in a bottle, amazing that anyone could find pleasure doing this.

    btw is there an electrically conductive and strong putty, for making things like a 510 atty connector?

    No, I was confused for a moment. I didn't know whether you were joking or to expect you to have Spock ears on behind the screen.

    yeah, a bit like building a mod case out of matchsticks - lol

    ps: a vacuum is zero pressure of course - blew my charade there :(

    pps: yes, glass is a very viscous liquid; the most brittle liquid I can think of.

    First of all, stop leaking out my ideas. lol

    I'm experimenting with this right now. I'm using 18 gauge copper wire and bending it into a v or w shape. Then wrap it with putty. Problem is, getting the atty to stay. Although copper wiring is softer than the brass, I'm finding it hard to want to twist grooves into the wiring to make it hold.

    I'll figure it out soon enough though. I'm also attempting to mold and cast connectors. This has been an idea I've had for a while and I know I can do this....problem is, I have to adjust the resin hardener. As small as the connector is, it has to be the right strength, or the casted threads will chip or the entire connector will shatter.

    So still working out the formula.

    ps. Yes, they make putty's that contain copper, aluminum, iron, etc....not sure about the rate of conductivity and resistance...but will pass some degree of voltage.

    How about a Ferrari style casing/mod - special ceramics, titanium and carbon fibre ?

    turbo-charged atty with 16 valve injector system, 'sport' mode (4.815volts) and dual exhaust

    fibre-optic lighting system (no plain LED on this one)

    and a low center of gravity so it won't roll off the table when you park it

    and with a price to match, lol

    would be a bit of a juice hog ;)

    and even the air filter, er , i mean cart filler, costs $100 per inch. Fish tank filter mesh? Get outta here! This is made of moon rock!

    That would be awesome! I think they make something like this already. It's the V8 ecig that's supposedly ultrasonic......but I have my doubts.
     
  12. kinabaloo

    kinabaloo Vaping Master ECF Veteran

    Oh, the mythical V8! Never heard of anyone having one. But then not many film stars and footballers on the forum i guess

    I wonder if I mod one of my airbrushes with an atomizer and a battery, hook it up to my compressor.....what kid of vaping experience should I expect? Instant over dose? lol

    Maybe a vacuum cleaner at a pinch. Darned noisy though.

    At least we got back on topic - vacuum cleaners

    or was it ???

    milk bottles?

    I think it was photon beams!
     
  16. kinabaloo

    kinabaloo Vaping Master ECF Veteran

    Photon beam?? This is not the Fiat Panda we're building!

    Yeah, so lets dispense with the nichrome coil - so passe - and use a proton beam as the atty core. We'll call it the V9.

    And power it with a domestic vacuum cleaner.

    Close?

    LMAO! Have you seen those green laser mods? I wonder if this could be the answer to ultimate heat production.

    Jokes asside. Do you know anything about the infared led's and what I would need if I wanted to use this as a switch?
     
  18. kinabaloo

    kinabaloo Vaping Master ECF Veteran

    No joking here, had a peek at the first post - AA boxes - hmm, just wait till the weekend when i disappear into the garage until sunday evening ...

    I think lasers will have their day as heat source for VPs.

    IR: normally used in pairs - transmitter and receiver (can do full comms like this - but I think you have in mind a break beam type of switch.

    So I'm not the only mad guy around here!

    Seriously, though, good idea :)

    Like those air guitars on the shopping travel (I have heard, from a friend)

    ps: or just a receiver that detects body heat ;)

    Well, this is a must for the particular mod that I have in mind. It's more a novel idea, rather than the conventional. But if I can't make this work with some form of remote activation. My only resource is to use the crappy suction switches in the e-cigs.
     
  20. kinabaloo

    kinabaloo Vaping Master ECF Veteran

    remote activation for your novel idea? Like a ghostwriter?

    I might be interested.

    "It was a dark and stormy night. But dedmon was alone in his garage, a solitary light in a dark landscape of windswept rain. Not just the light from an old table lamp on the workbench, but the light of creativity too. And this night also a special light, an infra-red light, the twilight zone where light meets heat ..."

    Something like that?

    ps: I get a share of the movie rights, right?
