FTNemesis question
« on: October 23, 2013, 10:10:16 PM »

A friend just received his nemesis from FT today and came to my work for some help. The build quality seems nice and I understand all the components and how to assemble for various batt sizes - but something is wrong ?? With the base + top cap I can adjust the center pin down and get the device firing on an 18350, but with the base + short extension + top cape an 18500 just rattles and won't make contact and fire, or with the base + medium extension tube +  top cape I can't get it to tighten down on an 18650 so it won't fire ??? Has anyone else encountered this problem ?

Could be that the kick ring is still on it? the polished ±5mm ring?

yep - remove the kick ring - take off the top cap/atty connection - attach atty - tighten the inner atty pin up to atty - put back on mod - pop battery in - attach bottom/switch - prior to tightening full, you sort of push it and release it a few times to allow the bottom to lock up to the battery.

should be fine from there on.

Maybe ??? There are 3 polished rings:
1st is the air flow control ring
2nd is on the top cap and below the air flow ring (top of the threads)
3rd is the locking ring locking ring above the switch

If ring #2 can be removed to allow the top cap to screw down farther then the problem would be solved. 

Bingo. That was it ;D. I had no idea that was removable.  Thanks so much

Vaping on one of my chemesis's today at work while mowing on the rider. Had it pared with my Kayfun and after several hours the switch screw had backed out to the point I had the pull the top cap off the recover the screw and put it all back together.  While reassembling it o realized I had lost the little micro rod/pin that fits inside the switch so spent sometime trying to fashion one out of a shower curtain clip that seems a similar dimensions but wasn't getting very far so want back to the mower and was able to find the little rod on the deck where my feet go on the mower.  I had to dig through all the leaves and debris from mowing and just can't believe I actually found it :). The Chemesis is all back together and working like a champ again 8)

Ive lost that little rod a few times. In the uk our cookers/stoves are normally connected to the electricity with 30 amp power cable. The live part of that cable is a  good match for that little  rod (diameter wise) .
 On more than 1 occasion, ive been found shortening the  cable on our cooker, much to mrs gruffs dismay.

(...) I had lost the little micro rod/pin ... was able to find the little rod (...)
hm,  seems I am not the only one to experience the the switch screw re-positioning itself. this appears to be "feature" of some chemises ...

lucky find with the pin  - I only take mine apart if working at a table.
