    My inbox has a spring 510 but it’s weak and wore out within a month.
    I tore down my inbox and it’s a sealed up unit and it’s a unique 510 unit.
    I have the first inbox edition and I think it’s a common problem?

    If you have had same problem with inbox please post your repair solution.
    It’s definitely fixable but before I modify the design I thought I ask if anyone has found a simpler repair.

    If no one responds that is familiar with it drop some pics of it here and perhaps we can figure out a fix / replacement.

    Here’s a few pictures of 510 with wires still attached.
    I’m going to remove wires with soldering iron and I’ll post a few more.

    The bf pin and orings slide into a port which connects with tube and finally into bottle.
    It’s dark inside mod so not able to get a decent picture.
    I’ll soon have assembly off and electrics out and maybe it’ll show better for a decent picture.

    These and the other pics should give an idea how the inbox liquid flows through 510 pin.
    I think 510 will come apart without destroying it and the spring may have turned out to be an oring that got squished out.

    510 came right apart by threading it on a tank and pulling it off.
    It’s grimy inside so an all night soak in alcohol and it’s a good place to stop for tonight.
    Picture of 510 in pieces.

    The pressed fit has gave out and the gap shouldn’t happen.

    Its not fixable unless I can get a unit from hcigar or modify mod for a traditional style bottle 510.
    I think I’ll adjust center pins in atomizer versus messing with mod 510.
    The pressed fit gave out and with pressure from threads it’ll keep failing.
    It’s usable just a pain at times.

    Check fat daddy vapes to see if you can get a 510 with a drop in long blunt sqounk needle. It will probably go through the positive pin into the bottle if you get the right kit.....

    I forgot silver solder sticks to SS and I may have a permanent fix.
    There’s no spring in assembly and never was.
    There’s a non conductive washer between positive pin and it has some spring to it.
    Actually a good design if the pressed on collar didn’t fail.
    I have some silver solder and hopefully the bottle of acid that came with it didn’t leak or evaporate.

    I think I got it repaired but time will tell.
    I used some CA based metallic adhesive that I’ve used on several aluminum or SS devices.
    I cranked down a few atomizers with protruding 510 pins and so far it’s holding.
    In fact it’s working better than it did when new so it was probably a failed press joint.
