I think I mentioned something about a project?
« on: July 31, 2017, 10:13:56 AM »
Modding an already modded vaporflask clone to squonker. Last year I threw in a genuine Evolv DNA40 and charger in this. Going to pop a Wapari BF 510 in it.

I guess this one is feeling a bit empty at the moment.



Hole looks weird, rest assured it is straight and just like on the genuine VF squonker. Edges are wee bit sharp at the moment, I'll have to dremel them and that also makes the hole slightly bigger.



Deep enough to squonk.



Now, paint job.

1st: red top half fading to orange which fades to a thin black stripe on bottom
2nd: reverse 1st option
3rd: red top fading to orange bottom with black specks
4th: same as 3rd but red and orange swapped

Decisions, decisions. I'd like to hear your opinion.

Bad news. Had a better look at Liquitex rattle cans sold by Clas Ohlson, all of those are matte and remaining options are silver (eww no), glossy white and glossy black. Red and lacquer I have are glossy so at the moment things are looking black and red.

I'll have to build a jig to hold the case and top. We'll see what I come up with.

Blame the rattle can for that lone black blob.

Edit: couldn't stand it, painted over.



Slight imperfections but no hoots will be given. It'll dry on my ridiculously hot balcony for few days and gets lacquered after a week or so. Battery cap threads shall be attacked with a brass brush when paint is fully dry.

All I need to do is one solder joint, gloop some threadlocker between 510 body and retaining nut and assemble the rest of it. By assembling I mean cram everything back in the enclosure and pop in four screws.



Atty is a clone of origen little. Driptip is fugly as hell but there is a good reason I use it. It doesn't wobble at all on that atty.

Done.







Don't know why the top plate is darker and smoother. Both parts of the enclosure have same amount of primer, paint (except where that big black blob was) and lacquer. Now its just a matter of waiting for those squonk bottles to arrive.

3fvapes have soft silicone bottles and I think you can refill the bottle(inside the mod) through the 510 with these.

I think someone fed that donkey FT uses for deliveries a bucket of meth. Ordered those bottles and other stuff on 27th last month, parcel is moving bloody fast.

Bottles showed up yay!

Had a bit of a scary moment with this mod. Threw a battery in, filled one bottle and... "weak battery". Multimeter said it was almost fully charged so what the heck? After a bit of hair pulling (figuratively, I rock a shiny dome) I remembered a flask specific oddity: lid and enclosure must have bare metal surfaces where they meet or the circuit gets wacky due to bad grounding. I didn't mask those areas so after couple licks with sandpaper it started to work as it should.
