    Agreed! You could sell a kit for that to Vamo owners! Starting with me!

    It is over here. $47USD to North America, comparable to other parts of the world.

    Yeah, but a shame it's made of aluminum. Doesn't match the color of the stainless steel Vamo.

    Great Job Tourlounette ...
    Going to have to make or buy a set love the vamo but it is really long would be better with fist pack feel. But I would have to go brass and copper with mine . With a little added parts to keep the settings from being pushed while vapin. Again ,Great Job Tourlounette.

    Tourlounette made his by hand with fostner bits, a drill press, and some billet bars. I don't think anyone has done it in stainless steel. It would be impossible to make without heavy machinery as steel is super hard to cut. Plus, the resulting mod would be twice as heavy. I had one made for my ss Vamo and it looks great. If you polish the aluminum to a shine it matches just fine.

    I wasn't referring to Tourlounette's work. I understand the reason for using aluminum when it's a DIY.

    Then you understand it would take ten times longer for a CNC machine to cut the same parts from steel, plus it would add a lot of weight to an already heavy mod. I agree with you 100% on the aesthetic point, for sure, but the aluminum can be polished to a shine that matches the ss Vamo. The ss Vamo isn't a mirror finish. It's pretty hazy actually. I have this setup but haven't polished it since I set it up. When I do I'll post a pic.

    Yep, I'm aware. I just prefer SS over aluminum in general. Weight doesn't bother me in the slightest.

    I'll look forward to the pics though. :)

    Since I have a different opinion on, the Chinese develop weekly new vapors, each model that comes out is but a time popular, you can compare it with smartphones, this mod is very nice, but the content will eventually need to be replaced, of course the concept itself remains timeless, that is why I am now already working on the same concept with a new vapor

    Those are only prototypes made by hand.
    But that guy here seems to do a good job if you want.

    You do really nice work. Style and class is what makes a pv look nice to me. And from what Ive seen in your polishing of the vamo you have drilled it . And working with very simple tools makes doing the job that much harder.
