    Very nice! Great job!

    Does it add much weight? I have no idea the heft of various metals. Heh. (ETA: I mean the entire cover, not just the lever, heehee!)

    I was going to suggest maybe modifying a screw that it would activate the button when pressed (basically, the screw would be a decorative button, I guess), but your solution is far more elegant! *grin*

    I'm not into the steampunk scene, but I've always loved at least some aspects of what is now considered steampunk. :)

    Just a few people doing steampunk.... You are certainly one of them, real nice job there too! I think you should make more than just sleeves, the innards really aren't too hard to do. One thing with steampunk and vaping, steampunk is often for the eye, and vaping is more for the hand. All day long LOL.

    Kailey, it is a bit heavy. It's not so heavy as to become really cumbersome, but you can definitely tell that you have something with substance.

    Thanks to everyone for all the encouragement and positive feedback!

    I have a sonic screwdriver screwdriver from ThinkGeek that I got as a Christmas gift last year. I am planning on modding it into a PV as soon as I finish moving my girlfriend and I to our new place. ;)

    Nice! If you do, let me know how you did it so I can do the same. I never bought anything from ThinkGeek, but all their stuff look really cool. I have a ss ego-c passthrough that might look nice as a sonic screwdriver. :)

    I do not know the Steampunk "scene" but I have seen a lot of Steampunk themed stuff and I like it a lot. Your addition of that lever switch is pure art to the entire setup. Very nicely done!

    I remember using clear nail-polish on coins I used for magic tricks - to prevent tarnish and lock-in the shine.

    Did you use any type of clear coat finish, and if not has the differentiation between the different colors of metals maintained itself?

    Great job on this and the hours of work show in the detail. Looking for something to customize the ego 650 & 900mah batts. Keeping my eye on this one

    ::UPDATE - OCT 30th::

    It's been a while since I have been on here, and I was amazed to see how many positive responses that I actually got on this. So after long and hard thinking-ness... (LOL) I decided to rebuild it to suit what I need it for. I have several different batteries that I use, all Ego style. (650, 900, ego-c, and twist) I wanted something cool that would work with all of them, without much piddley-futzing. I direct drip for the most part, so I based the design around that.

    The body is solid copper (plumbing fittings) with brass accents throughout, and screws, just cuz they look badass. I designed the lever to be held away from the button by means of a spring, and the lever itself is cut out of some brass sheet that I had lying around from a disassembled alarm clock. Tell me what you think. Oh, plus, bigger pictures this time. :rickroll:
