    that's bad .... i've been thinking of something like this for GP paps tubes, an adapter with paps threads and a 510 connection. that would be pretty sweet.

    Having this made by my local machinist. I had to convert all the measurements because the machinery doesn't program in metric. I'm using 1/8" plate for the top and 1/4" for the bottom. I'll have it in a few days and will post build progress here. Thanks, Tourlounette, for a great design and the schematics for us. As soon as I get a drill press I'll try my hand at building this like a real man. :toast:

    It would be a PITA if you actually had to use it to unscrew the caps :p . We are the few that likes to get our hands sweaty with just a simple battery change :)

    OK. Got the pieces from the machinist. THe only modification I had to make was I needed to open the hole for the battery tube a little more to allow the threads to fit through. Otherwise, everything works and I'm totally stoked!

    Nice!:headbang::headbang:

    Is it possible to know how much it cost?

    Well done... Do you like it?

    I have just received a new vamo in ss this one. So i will make a an another for my self.
    This one will be a bit larger because with my first drawing it is not large enough to put my terminator on it.
    Just need 1 mm larger.

    I paid $90 for an hour of machine time. Pretty expensive, I know, but I live in Los Angeles. Nothing I can do about that. I plan on getting a drill press and some fostner bits to do it myself next time. The only issue I have is some devices won't make a connection because of the separation plate and the 510 connector. 1mm makes a big difference on dome dripper RBAs. I plan on grinding down some material from the top of the Vamo around the drip well to raise the connector a tiny bit. When I make another set, I will make the top (22mm) holes about .5mm deeper. I love it though.

    That price really is not that bad, considering. Doing these oneself without a machine shop is bound to take well over an hour too.

    If this hits the market, I'm definitely in for one. An elegantly simple solution, I love it.
