Title: 18650 torch mod
Post by: thescot on May 10, 2011, 09:08:29 AM
I've been working with some Thai guys in making mods with some success and some disasters.
I saw this torch modded and loved its design so i bought a couple of dozen ...lol. I'm an engineer but not great with electronics so this is my attempt at a mechanical mod (sort of) and its only a start.
The switch is mechanical and i had help with the board for the atty connection and light. It works great but i need to get a lighter spring as its a wee bit strong and noticable on the trigger finger after vaping on it for a while. When time allows i want to make the mod 100% mechanical which is not as easy as it sounds.

Thanks Steve,

I have a few mods and all have their good points but there's nothing better than something with your own touch.
Most mechanical mods are costly but when i get past the atty/battery connection end to fit with the battery length it will work out pretty cheap compared to other mass made 18650 mech mods. Just wish i had a lathe in the garage!!

I just don't get it . The shape is odd . The gold makes it look cheap , and the led's help it look cheaper . May I ask the circumference ?

Thanks for the replies except JIMBO!!.

Jimbo i can only think strange things why you would want to know the circumference with such a cheap, cheaper odd looking mod that you don't get .... where was that thread with a perfect square looking mod you made so i can slag it off!!

Now now,  you obviously put the pics up to see what others think and I told you, I was honest .

I wanted to know the circumference of the mod as it looks rather large . Might be uncomfortable in smaller hands .

Like I said good on you for making a mod . My comment was funny , your response was more funnier .

Your first comment was great and funny if you could have left it at that.
What i don't get is the questions if it's so cheap and odd.
Its not so big and roughly the same size as the omega without the rubber sleeve. If its for a but plug then maybe the box mod would be better suited.

I just try to make mods with a different twist like a cheap 18650 mechanical mod. The cheap gold connection is a 901 as it's easier to mod but a silver 901-510 is stuck on the top to allow the tank and to make it look prettier but i'm more interested in its performance to be honest

I was honest , I would have put it in my first post but I didn't want to tell the truth but it bug's me when I hold myself back from telling the truth as i see it  .

If someone had told me that my box mod was awful I would have taken it on the chin. I put the pics out there for comments .  I don't intend to sell mine , you intend to sell urs and my honesty will help you .

Yeah great a few patted you on the back , hell i did !! Put the bee back in ur bonnet and get on with making another mod , or take my advice and amend the one you have already made .

the gold is actually silver as i have 3 of them sat infront of me its made of aluminium and the rubber sleeve can be removed to expose an all aluminium body if thats your thing.

how about it naked ;)

Post by: jimbo497 on May 10, 2011, 10:57:47 PM
No No you didn't remove the black rubber thing, I did when it got stuck up my arse when i used it as a butt plug .

It looks a lot better now , just get rid of them lights and i think ur done

On a serious note this has been funny I have really enjoyed this banter , we can carry on but its a waste of vital energy , that you will need in order to sell these crappy cheap mods

I like the light...but dont like 901's   ;D
Title: Re: 18650 torch mod
Post by: thescot on May 11, 2011, 07:24:43 AM
I'm not a lover of the light but being impatient it was easier done to get it finished than it would have been getting it 100% mechanical. Still want no light or wires inside before i'm happy.
I can take it on the chin just don't fancy it up my arse ...thought you might have liked the light Jimbo to see if there was anything left over from previous encounters up there ...lol  ;)

I have my own torch mods for that thank you .

Patience and politeness are  hard to come by these days , think we both need to learn

Time for a truce and maybe a group hug (http://smileys.on-my-web.com/repository/Love/friends-067.gif). I like the creativity of the new mod builders. Some ideas will be incorporated into the mainstream and some wont.  I liked this mod, maybe not for going out if its too big,  but nice for lounging and vaping. I thought it resembled a hand grenade,  and the lighted well looked cool 8)

the last two lines from my prevoius post are "my final thoughts" on this matter . Meaningless insults are just that ..

No probs capt .... i just wanted to share what i had done with others and obviously knew it wouldn't be to everyones taste. Just didn't expect the butt plug which was a sort of fun comment (maybe?) but the crappy cheap mod statements is way overboard in my book and i can give it as well as take it ...lol.

guys, please give the rectum related banter a break........it was mildly amusing to begin with but dragging it out for this long is making it a bit naff and simply produces unpleasant reading

cheers

Just to give a better size comparison of the mod i've attached a pic which shows it's not so big.
It is the same mod but god knows where the sleeve has gone ...... sorry but i couldn't resist.....lol  :-*
