    That turned out great! My husbands Provari arrived today, and after I showed him the pictures in this thread today, he went out in the garage and whacked off the end of the handgrip, leaving the wide lip end instead, and made it into a stand, lol...he tips over his stuff alot and said that's what he wanted, so there ya go--he can't put it in his pocket or anything like that, but he's been vapin' it right in the stand. Hey if he's happy, I'm happy--I told him I'm getting pink handgrips at the mx store tomorrow, and making mine like the ones here!

    I considered leaving some of that wide lip on the end, cutting a straight edge so that when the Provari is laid on its side it wouldn't be able to roll. That's one nice thing about those cubed Siam Mods tubes, being square they can't roll off a table or chair. I lost one of my favorite pyrex tanks last week when my Silver Bullet rolled off a bench about 2 feet onto a tile floor and shattered the tank.

    Yea I kinda wondered about that, the grip is flat enough on the bottom to stand up?

    If you have a Fry's Electronic near you then you can get the 1" heat shrink tubing in 3-4 foot lengths in different colors for about $4

    FRYS.com | THE

    I was up there today and had Provari in hand and it slid in the 1" tubing just fine, should shrink down perfectly.

    I chose the motorcycle grip as I did not want a permanent/semi-permanent "skin" but rather a "case" of sorts for when I leave the house.

    Post some pics if ya do that heat shrink

    I like this idea. Also the Sugru posting as well. I have a few projects around the house that could use this.

    I ended up using 34g actually. To me it give the best middle ground of heating up quickly with just the right amount of coils but that's just me.

    That's just brilliant! Thanks for posting those pics. It makes the process a lot easier to compare to it (in case of accidentals of course!) - R
