    If the scotch tape doesn't hold, use the handyman's secret weapon: duct tape!

    Don't use Scotch tape or Duct tape or anything with an adhesive directly over the hole. One, the adhesive will get in the juice and you will be vaping that. Two, the juice will weaken the adhesive and it will eventually fail again.

    My suggestion would be to wrap it with plumber's pipe "tape" first then cover that with the Scotch tape. The plumber's tape (also used for air compressor lines) is a white plastic tape that is water/air proof and has no adhesive.

    Lordron's_Drag, do you know the ID and length of the glass? I'm thinking that you could replace it with a piece of Acrylic or some other plastic tube, bonus would be it's cheaper and more resilient than the quartz glass.

    They used to all be that way. The whole reason vapes went to glass from acrylic is some flavorings will crack acrylic tanks

    I learned to use one topper at a time. Generally just 5-7 of them. With that in mind, my car emergency kit gets a spare. I have a Tupperware with back-ups. Yep, back-ups for the back-ups.

    Oh golly, no! But I never leave the house with 3 of them. And it’s hard to pick which three... I have to start choosing an hour in advance :) Plus juice and batteries.

    I understand. My kids are grown and I’m on my own, so I only have my dogs and bird to look after. And trust me, they’re more pampered than I am. Squeakies and vet bills before shiny things.

    Necessity is the mother of invention....best one here is the plumbers tape...wrap it around at least five times :)

    Permanent fix would be a tiny bit of resin...pop the glass out, line the interior and then resin repair the resulting hole...job done :)

    Very interesting I have Teflon duct tape and resin. Do you think juice will eat threw vinyl ester resin I have it in 2 forms liquid and putty I'm think I could use the putty put some dma in it it will cure in 30 seconds. Any ways my buddy at the vape store ordered 10 and said he will give me the wholesale price on top of his discount so for 15 dollars I'll be good

    I've actually been researching squonking. I've also been building a little I got a few pre made coils and some cotton bacon. Been trying different things with a tobh v2 3 post, I know old school but that atty is super excited to wick. Get about 5 good hits before I have to drop. Running a .15 build ATM decent flavor even tho I'm not really into taste, but the clouds oh boy
    The only problem I'm having is that my drag says check atomizer so I have to take off the atty and put it back on I'm thinking it has something to do with the pin there like a screw on it I'm not sure what it's for here's a picture. 15551652131563535232428865726802.jpg
