If you want an easy way to make the smaller you could try -

http://www.shrinkpictures.com/ (http://www.shrinkpictures.com/)

Set it to, say, 600 or 760 pixels and see what it looks like.

Looking good.

How much time do you estimate that it will take to make a complete atty? Looks like a lot of work, but quite something to say that you made the whole thing from a lump of stainless steel.

Nice one.

finnaly my taps and dies arrived to do the 510 threading.it was nerve racking taping the m2 threads for the negative connections but it was a success and i didnt snap the tap in the hole lol so they all screw together now and all i have left to do is the brass rod up the centre pole,skim a groove for the rubber o rings that hold the top cap,cut top caps back to size and drill an air hole and cut the tank acrylic.then will be the big vape test:) here is a pic off them

i am cosidering maybe selling them if i was to id need to go to a cnc machinist if i were to get alot off orders as it would take me quite some time to make them one at a time. yeah it took seconds to coil up and worked straight away.it holds 3ml of liquid aswell.  :D

Post by: justin case on May 18, 2013, 08:29:51 PM
well that would depend on your desire....if you could make two a week, that would be around an extra 200 quid in your pocket, not to be sniffed at that.
make them and sell them at your pace, and that way you wont put yourself under any stress, as a lot of gennie makers do with their long waiting lists.

if you go down the CNC route, you are going to lose the hand made aspect of your work and it will just be like a different designed Chinese atty....there are and there will be in the future many different gennies on the market....a proper hand made device will always demand top dollar and be in demand...IMHO.

could you tell the difference from a high end cnc lathe work to a hand turned one if the same materials was used ?

could you tell the difference from a high end cnc lathe work to a hand turned one if the same materials was used ?

it's a question of integrity, i certainly couldn't tell the difference but if you were advertising them as being individually hand made and you got found out that they were actually run off on a CNC lathe in large batches, then your reputation would be lower than the scum bag poster who calls himself justin case.

if you go down the CNC route, you are going to lose the hand made aspect of your work and it will just be like a different designed Chinese atty....there are and there will be in the future many different gennies on the market....a proper hand made device will always demand top dollar and be in demand...IMHO.

could you tell the difference from a high end cnc lathe work to a hand turned one if the same materials was used ?

they are now actually made in a korean hospital ward....the guy drags himself out of bed, runs off a quick chi you, and then climbs back into bed exhausted.

Your reputation looks fine from here you tart :P

I'd buy one of these atties, they look well sweet. Think we'll need an ECR discount code though :D

i am cosidering maybe selling them if i was to id need to go to a cnc machinist if i were to get alot off orders as it would take me quite some time to make them one at a time.

You could make and sell them but in one of two ways. If it's for fun, a hundred quid here and there would cover the materials, tool upkeep and it might give you a few quid left over for a few drinks. Some people do this and are happy.
But if it's a venture into business, even if it's just dipping your toe in, you need to get your prices right from the start.
A low tradesman's wage is £120 a day, you don't actually get this yourself as most of this goes back into running the business, you might get half. If one atomizer took 2 days it would then cost someone £240 and for a bespoke made item like this and that would be a good price. I've seen similar levels of engineering go for around £350-£500.
Then you need to find out if there are enough people out there with enough money to keep a fairly consistent stream of work coming in.
There are more things to consider as well.
Maybe you know all this already, I don't know what you do for a living, but I'm a carpenter meself and I find that most people don't want to pay the real price for bespoke made stuff. Or maybe I'm just being negative.
Nice piece of work though. You've inspired me to make one myself, but out of wood.

Craig ... you know the score, so pricing is best decided relative to others ...

@ Nick ... a wood genesis atomiser ? sounds very promising and would certainly have an amount of appeal, but i expect similar problems to arise as have for other ventures using woods.

If you want to do this as a business, your going to have to keep coming up with new ideas all the time which I am sure will be a pain in the arse. I also bet that the desirability will go down if they are mass made. Nothing better than a decent bloke (or bird) making something themselves and knocking them out one by one.

thanks for all the replys.to be honest im not sure i want to go down the road off starting my own business .i wanted to make my own genesis as i have the tools for the job and thought it would be nice to make my own.in the near future when i have time if anyone is interested in buying one i may make a few at a resonable price.i do not have alot off time to make these all the time but im sure i could make some now and then if people want them. ;D

i'm sure you'd have a lot of interest Craig, if you ever do decide to make a few for sale ... in the meantime, it would probably be worth looking at other designs too, maybe even attempt a full hybrid. 8)

I think they look great and would definitely be interested tho I think the likely cost Nick Brown was saying (anywhere from £200 - £500 if I've read it right) would be way out of my league

Fantastic bit of work though - wish I could do stuff like this

i'm not sure Nick Brown has quite the expertise ... ;) ... abundance of hand made, hand turned and others so far crafted, does tend to mark and establish practical pricing.

I think 200-500 would be out of everyone's price league, apart from a few numpties on ECF.

I think a 70-90 quid price would be more realistic.

hi all im looking at all the replys in my post and im slightley confused lol i have not mentioned selling my atomisers beetween 200 and 500 lol when i do put a few up for sale they will be very resonabley priced and people will get a good bargain:)

lol GED  :D I havent been on the forum in a while and checked replies to my posts and wondered what was going on lol well lets say they wont be to dear and im sure whoever buys one will be pleased. i got mines on my gp paps lux now and it works amazing i dont know why i was vv vaping.the flavours from the genesis are so much better than cartos etc. im pretty pleased with the results.the other one i have im thinking off maybe putting it on the trade section and swapping it for another style off atomiser ;D

I think they look wicked. Do you reckon you might take an order for one with a shorter centre post so you can cut down the window height? I know it would mean less juice capacity but I deffo think it improves the looks at least for those like me that fawn over the reduced window like on the Foggatti 22 mini tank kit:
