    Okay, so this feels really weird, but I have been vaping for like 2 years and I barely ask advice anymore, but I have never made my own mod! My goal in all this is to eventually build a dual 26650 mechanical (Box mod and a tube... Because I can... lol). I know. Lofty goals. I was thinking of starting off with a single or dual 18650, probably a box mod if dual, tube mod if single. But how do I do this? What parts do I need and where do I get these parts? Do I need a soldering iron? I don't have one. But how do I even go about doing this? If you need any more clarification as to what it is I'm trying to do, please ask, but can someone at least point me in the right direction?

    Sorry no one answered you yet. Here are a few things you need to decide first:
    Full mechanical-no wires, semi mech - batt, wires switch, or regulated?
    Wood, metal or other?
    Parts can be found lots of places - Digi Key, Mouser SparkFun etc..
    Couple of crucial tools used in modding: solder iron, solder, flux, Dremel, small files and hobby knife.
    If you haven't started modding by now, go for it. It is rewarding and the sky is the limit. Good luck.
