    FYI management has a chance to find a new available area as discounts had a terrible knock on effect.

    So far so good but I'm not holding my breath and am of the opinion it will be possible for me to go to the toilet from my right armpit sooner rather than later.

    Probably too much information but I'll leave it here anyway.

    @Pippi

    for the "narnia" i put my air holes where the red lines are. They are designed to go through the holes in the post, but i find this smoother on the draw. I also drill my air holes to 3mm

    trial a bit prior to drilling, since you can't undo that :*

    Grrr - well I built the bloody serpent dripper - and it wont work on my Procyon or the 6o watt radius - first I put a clapton 0.9 ohm coil in it - so when that failed I tried a 1.5 ohm Nicrome - also didn't work - so then I tested it on the VT Inbox and it works fine although it does seem to seep/leak a bit.
    There was no screw to put in the squonk hole - just some little rubber pluggie things in the box and I presume thats what they are for.

    Rather than throw out the 0.9 clapton coil I put it in the Mulciber BF for the inbox and its working but nothing special. it was better with the Nicrome coil but there is no way I am swapping it back over tonight.

    Anyway its been a lot of messing about and time wasted for no good result. All in all its been damn frustrating and I have decided that the building malarkey is not much fun and just a necessary evil :mad:

    could it be the 510 pin? i'm not familiar with the serpent, nor The Holy Mods :bowdown:

    but pics look like pin doesn't protrude very far at all

    so may not make contact on some mods

    Sounds like the problem I had with my snap dragon atty. Exactly what doggie said. 510 is not long enough for some mods. The solution for me was to put a little brass washer in the 510 hole then screw in the atty. Problem solved.

    Congratulations @Pippi I personally have backed off squonkers, as I keep forgetting to squeeze the bottles. My Favourite tank for rebuilds is the OBS Engine followed closely by the VGod Tricktank RDTA, but the latter is for experienced builders and is somewhat of a PITA for the newbies. Don't fret you are doing well. Once you get the hang of it you will begin to wonder why you never tried before.

    Thanks Luv and yes I know the OBS Engine is very popular and also one of Noes Fav's but sadly I really dislike the aesthetics of it - so I will never buy one - I like my Vapes to look good as well as be functional :)
    Meanwhile I will tinker along mostly building for my little Squonker family of just five Mods. :)

    LOL the Engine is undoubtedly one of the best tanks on the market, aesthetics-wise it's not are pretty as some but not as ugly as others but I'll take function over form :sillygrin:

    Maybe I'll love the new UD Bellus V2 too, I should have it to try out by next weekend, aestheticly it's a bit better looking than the Engine I think:

    Hoping someone manufactures some decent red glass tank sections for it, the kind that doesn't peel or chip off, like the red & black glass I got for my Engines.
    Other tanks I got replacement colored glass for sometimes has lasted only a few weeks before starting to peel or chip.

    I've just noticed this on FT.

    [​IMG]

    No reviews but from the look it's very similar to one I own which works very well and is easy to build with no leaks.

    Will be a MTL with the bottom screw air adjustment and fill but the thing that struck me is it looks similar to the original nautilus mini with the protective glass.
