    Done my second Shrink Vamo! :banana::banana::banana:

    But I preferred the first one in aluminium alloy, it looks better than brass... :?:

    Very Cool Work.

    I like the Off-Center Turning you did with a 3-Jaw Chuck.

    I've had Many People tell me that I Couldn't do that. I always just Smile and say "OK".

    LOL

    Hi there,does anyone know if there are any vendors in the uk doing these parts or full conversion
    I have one from Elektronické cigarety a p which is fantastic
    I went for this one because of the flat top where it screws together( just personel preference )
    So I would like to buy the parts / ready made one for a present for a friend
    Any advice much appreciated

    You might as well try acrylic/lexan or a nice, tight laminated wood (like gunstocks). The idea is so simple that finding a pretty and dead-cheap material is a complete win!

    BTW, when I saw that pic? My hindbrain started gibbering - I was thinking of the swing/space and rails..

    Once I look for a few, I realize all is well and even my Gramps (master machinist) would smile and nod ;-)

    uploadfromtaptalk1372792219743.jpg Couldn't resist... I have been shrinking all sorts of stuff. My vamo was just about my least favorite mod, but now I might even carry it around.

    Made a floating connection under the control unit and can rotate as I desire locking it in place with a small nail, thanks for the project!

    Thanks for compliment. It's actually an independent 4 jaw chuck, I took off one of the jaw. But 3 jaw chuck will works too, just too difficult to align the center.

    LOL! No way for this micro lathe(Sieg C0), a bit struggle for stainless steel... :(

    China stole the idea and is also producing these now.
    I'll post a link as soon as I've found the website again.

    I was mistaken, it isn't a Vamo mod.
    But nevertheless, they stole the idea...

    Mno. It's not the Vamo. but this idea is about two years old.
    This is Vamo.

    Yo han, that is indeed a pretty old idea, and actually increases the mass of a mod with the rather large bottom socket- shorter sure, but heavier. I've always thought that with that design it is only stabilized at the bottom and if you squeezed it in your hand it would flex. It probably wouldn't, but you could stress the threads. In a design that relies on 510 threading it would be particularly bad.
