this is what i do when press fitting. cleaning up the corners is very important to make the edges meet up. buffing will help as well and maybe a little oil to lube it up some lol.

Thanks Rocc, i dont have many square edged tools, and the 1 i do have, which is a small 2mm parting blade gets chobbled quickly by the SS lol

Really, i should have sharpened it, but everything is better in hindsight! :)

Thanks Cerberus :) I thought so to, its just a shame that the ti and the ss class a little bit lol

Other than that, im pretty happy with! And it vapes somewhat better to, could either be because of the topcap or the bigger air hole (1.5mm) either way, its vaping like a train and im a happy camper!

Rocc > Lesson learnt, always sharpen ya tools! LOL :)

Couple of thoughts:

Bloody brilliant thing on the top cap - could you do me a brass/SS one for the AGA T2 as I've got a little mix-up going on with my SS 19b and brass 19e and a brass band in the AGAT2 cap like that would look the biz. What might you charge?

Ed the new top cap and drip tip looks very nice indeed mate. when you get your press fit worked out and the line is gone its going to look even better. well done mate

That's great Eddy! I agree, anything to bling it up and make it a bit more sparky would be pretty cool! I ended up drilling the air hole on the cap out to 1.5ml on mine, tho I wonder whether to go to 2... Anyway, that's another convo. Cheers bud!

So, had a lazy sunday but managed 30mins in the Garage and made 2 drip tips, both of which need finishing off, but you get the idea :)

Delrin tipped SS, i have some "acrylic" which i dont actually think is "acrylic" more of a resin, and stinks nasty bad when turned, and dont fancy having it in my gob to be fair, else id have used that, maybe Mev could try something similar with his nice acrylic blanks? :)

Enjoy!

nice tips there mate. be careful you dont cut pvc and if you do make sure it never smokes. the gas it give off will hurt you real bad.

Thanks for the heads up Rocc! :) Will keep that in mind mate, i dont think ill ever use PVC though, not if i can help it anyway, always use Acetol (Delrin) which as far as i know, is pretty inert!

I reckon they look cool - pretty different!

Btw Ged posted a pic of a AGA W that I'd never seen before in another thread (Fast tech?) - the top cap (it's just plain) looks tons better than the T2's. No idea why they aren't around anymore but thought might be worth a gander if not seen them

Thanks Ilega, needs some tweaking, but generally happy with them, the white one is a little "thin" for my liking, more akin to a rolly LOL :)

Ive just had a look @ the AGA W cap, looks better than the AGA T2 by far, hopefully my material will be here this week, i only have some 20mm and need 25mm for the top cap, once its here, ill bash a cap or 10 out, im using an RSST at the moment, and to be honest, become quite fond of it, although, i dont like the polycarb tank, so may revert back to the AGA once it looks somewhat better :)

Doesn't look thinner than the other to me but difficult to see from the pics!

Yep, I think the RSST looks better than the AGA myself. DOn't have an RSST tho. Only thing stopped me was the polycarb tank - I keep busting my non-pyrex tanks, which is weird as I don't think I'm using anything too OTT citrus or whatever-wise. The RSST tank looks better I think as more low profile than the AGA, a bit like my favourite, the smaller Foggy 2.5ml tank - totally the best looking thing out there in my eyes at least (but the DT on them isn't so cool shhh!)

In fact, let's have a gratuitous foggatti picture lol:



I noticed that slender pink DT you have - did you see the one from vapelab (the popeye) that's really similar? Totally over the top but great  :D

Best of luck with the top caps!
