LOL something like that Mev, im known to be a bit "racey" from time to time, but i have to be honest im a little annoyed *RANT ON*

I purchased 2 items from ebay late Thursday night :

1 x 1" die stock holder - £5.95 FREE P&P
1 x  DTI on a magnetic base £39.99 + £5.50 P&P

Guess which didnt turn up today? lol i dont see what i paid £5.50 for, they had 2 delivery options, option 1 was £2.50 P&P or pay £5.50 for an imaginary "EXPRESS SERVICE" basically, i paid extra for nothing (im not arguing about the money, its not that thats annoyed it) its offering an "EXPRESS SERVICE" that doesnt compete with FREE P&P LOL, when FREE P&P Is a quicker service, yet i paid £5.50 for a slower service, well you get my point.

Anyway, the items i could have done with havent arrived, but im going to crack on and see what i can get done, done :)

*RANT OFF*

Not the best of images but you get the idea :)

Just need to polish that ring, brush the rest of it, and do the button :)

Thanks Capt, its just a case of getting it to work now! LOL

I think making it was the easy part, but getting it to fire up is a different matter! (again, i could be over complicating it a bit)

Well the good news is, upon first test, it LIVES!

I dont have a 14500 though so used an AA instead (yeah go on, say its dangerous! lol)

Anyways, upon depressing the button it read a massive 1.2V (which is what the battery is rated at) will do a few more tests and see if there are any losses later on. For now, im going to get a steak with the Mrs for tea! lol

I then need to mill out some "finger slots" so you can actually press the button. Then wrap it up, and put it to one side whilst i work on an atomiser, which, again, ill post pictures and updates here! :)

Thanks for keeping posting your progress eddy, it's really interesting!  :D

Where will the vent holes go (assuming it's going to have them/it)?

Hi Ilegal, yes thats also on the list of to do (and thanks for following! :) )

I was going to put 3 vent holes vertically up the one side of the tube/body itself. Not seen this before so thought it would be different as i wanted to keep the button solid as one piece and didnt want to drill it out, ALTHOUGH, this is still an option! :)

Not sure how id go about drilling the holes in the tube without the bit deflecting off the body, so it remains to be decided yet! (Im sure a seasoned engineer would find that easier than i would!)

:) Thanks again

if you haven't got a drill press use a center punch before drilling. ;)
