Me to Zarf, so your guess it as good as mine! Ive used Kiln dried Spalted beech for that one, but have many other wood blanks on the way, im planning on doing another beech one, but staining it, and adding gloss Varnish to finish it off, that should protect it against hands/oils/grime etc! :)

Ian (Mr Touchwood)'s top tip is to use teak oil to improve the tactile feel and bring out the grain...

Thanks Nick, last 2 pics :)  with an RSST by the way and a Jackal Drip Tip (thats covered in crap and needs a clean! been a long day!) :)

Now we're talking.....What a great piece of work.....I'll buy one if you decided to make any more...But I'd rather commission you to make a wooden bottom feeder  :P

And, nice one Jaded...Lovely colour and grain  ;D

ANYWAY, im finishing off these drip tips, then ill get on and make something that id be proud to put my name to, post some pics, and if anyone is interested, id be happy to make them :) Hybrid genny et all

Many thanks for that pic of your  'Bubinga' Touchwood, Jaded. Looks excellent.
(If not too much trouble, could you indicate its approximate dimensions, please?  height, width, broadest depth, depth along firing button axis...)
ps. That atomiser/adapter you show on it looks fine, too. Which ones were you using in that pic?


http://touchwood-ecigs.com/ ---> select 'photos' page for more pics showing how Touchwood uses an external brass 'skeleton' to remove all structural stress from the wood. Simple. Elegant. Wood. (I like elegant. I like wood. I love simple.)

Sadly, I suspect that the Touchwoods cannot be 'kicked' - as I see is no way to ground the 'kick'. (a small metal sleeve under, and linked to, the 510 connector might address that, I think)
Yes, I know I said 'I love simple' and then go and harp on about a 'kick'. The "reason" for my liking the 'kick' is that I find I get a burnt taste from many e-juices on low-res coils, so limiting system power works - for me (along with avoiding building sub-1.4ohm coils, too). More importantly, I've found that I deplete my 18350 cells too far (sometimes down to 2.5v - which is not good) on my Sig8w in its small config. The Sig8W in smallest mode is my preferred mod when out, because of  my hands' limitations. (I can't really 'do' bottom-button mods above 18500 size)

Ive broke my RSST, and now, i have nothing to vape on. No backup devices (they are on loan to a friend to which, i cant take back now lol)

Anyway, this has forced me into starting a genesis atty....wish me luck. May not be on chat this eve, if i am, chances are things didnt work out too well, alternatively, it could be the dogs and ill be very happy! LOL :D

remember the discussion about removing the "point on the centre post"? Yeah well, i did, whilst it was in situ, melted the threads on the insulator and now wont make contact with the 510 connector. Dumb ass thing to do really, but thats what happens when you're an impatient bugger like me! :) lol oops.
