Title: Re: my recent projects
Post by: diz on January 14, 2013, 01:33:49 PM
That is a great looking lathe. Nice purchase!

I was reading in the RocketScientist thread in UKvapers about setting up a machine shop and I think that's a recommended machine in there.

I'd love to set something like that up myself. I just need to clear the shed out of some junk first!

I hope your machining ventures create many wonderful vaping aids. Good luck and keep safe!

Title: Re: my recent projects
Post by: igetcha on February 07, 2013, 11:35:11 AM
steve, i reckon you should have a go at making a nice simple carto tank......get some pyrex tubing and then use the lathe to make 2 nice SS caps. id imagine its probably a bit easier than a genesis atty but a little more advanced than drip tips :)

ps....make it 22mm wide so it gives mods a nice hybrid look ;)
Title: Re: my recent projects
Post by: stevemontuno on February 07, 2013, 02:23:58 PM
Cheers guys,,,,,,yep I think you lads are right  ,,,,time for next stage,,,think i'll probably go with making a genny atty pretty soon i recon,,not into the carto tanks so im not really bothered about making those,,,, but yep ive just ordered a 510 tap&die so we'll see what happens when they get here  ;D
Title: Re: my recent projects
Post by: igetcha on February 07, 2013, 02:33:16 PM
not into the carto tanks so im not really bothered about making those

dont really care if you are into them or not.......i want one! lol :P

i purchased a "Killer" rebuildable atomiser yesterday that is used in cartomiser tanks to replace the cartomiser.......a nice 22mm tank with the Killer inside will go great on my Poldiac ;)
