    I would only use Vaseline in 2 places at most. 1 on the o-ring on the bottom cap. The bottom cap isn't meant to be taken off except maybe for cleaning so it isn't really needed there unless you can't get the bottom cap all the way on. The other is the o-ring on the button. Take the o-ring off to do this though and then wipe off all of the excess before putting it back on the button.

    Hello all,

    my first post on the GG forums, hope I get it right..

    I try to install my Tile v1 to the the Esterigon hybrid base I received yesterday from ESG.

    I remove the original center post pin from the Tilemahos, leave the center post plastic in place and install the center post pin from the hybrid base, but I can't get the new center post pin tight enough so that the "innards" are fixed to the base housing (I can move the housing more or less freely around the center post).

    Any ideas what might be missing, additional plastics somewhere?

    BR,
    -lars.

    Oh, but what fits perfectly is the 18650 tube in mate SS, it gives the Esterigon quite a nice grip, both from length and material.

    Hi Adam,

    I've watched that video, but it doesn't help for my problem as Imeo left out the part where you would install the atty to the center post pin. So I can't see if additional plastics are required or need to be modified in some way.

    BR,
    -lars.

    Hi Lars,
    I just went the other way last night. Hybrid base > standard base. The only parts exchanged are the post assemblies.
    Everything else is the same from the "center post plastic" up.

    Cheers

    Hi lar, welcome to GG forum. I wish you a pleasant stay:)

    So your issue is that even if you totally screw the new center pin to the center post, the inside pieces of the housing still move against housing?

    Hi Imeo,

    Thanks for the nice welcome, I'm already enjoying the GG forum as a reader for a few months now :)

    The problem was as you described it, but I figured out what the cause was: the center post plastic from the Tile v1 is to thin, either by design or from wear I don't know, but I was able to tighten it using a center post plastic ("washer") from a Tilemahos v2. The v1 washer is about 0,7mm, the v2 (or new) washer is about 0,9mm thick.
    Maybe the center post extension of the hybrid base needs a tiny bit more threading to compensate for thin washers, if that is mechanically possible?

    BR,
    -lars.

    Both of V1 and V2 Tilemahos use the same center post plastic, that is 0,7mm Lar. So the issue is with your center pin for sure. Maybe the threading is 0,1mm shorter, exactly as you said. I see that you solve your issue but if you see something similar in future, you can use a 4x1,5o-ring. Its a quick and excellent solution too:)

    I am glad to hear that you finally got 2 esterigons and you appreciate them BT! They are great constructions and not ordinary at all. Be well buddy :)

    My recent mishap with Esterigon and Tilemahos slipping down in a chair and firing for an hour gave me the unusual "opportunity" to take both down to each and every individual part and reassemble them. Not a task for the feint of heart :) but also unnecessary under ordinary circumstances. People can say a lot of things about Imeo but there's one indisputable fact: The man loves his o-rings.

    Another indisputable fact (in my world) is that the Esterigon/Tilemahos combo is at the top of anything I've ever had in terms of all important criteria. Easy to use, easy to build, versatile, easy to clean, and stunningly good looking. I can't imagine Imeo ever topping this one (except to stick a VIR in it).

    I'm so glad I have a knack for sticking with the best.

    I guess you want to know how to install Tile v1 to the hybrid base? Maybe this video from Bishopheals helps ( I skipped to where the relevant part starts):
