RE: Slug Mod Clone
Ow - $240 is more than I'm spending!

I've seen the clones for $35

RE: Slug Mod Clone
Phoenix I love your new avatar pic. 

I'd love to get a slug, but it's kind of low on my list right now since I don't have a lot of money and I'd rather get more juice and an Orchid.

RE: Slug Mod Clone
Always a good idea to have plenty of juice.

Orchids and I don't get on that well - I have to use fiddly thin wire to get the resistance to where I want it to be.m I always seem to end up with coils that short on the chimney Sad

RE: Slug Mod Clone
I mostly just want it for driving when I don't feel like fiddling with my Big Dripper. I used a Kayfun quite a bit when I first got into RBAs, so I'm pretty good at making the coils fit in the chimney. My local shop puts random items on discount every now and then, so I'm hoping they'll discount those soon since they haven't had a sale on them at all yet.

As long as it works, it's hard to go wrong with brass and nice wood.

The clones aren't even all that expensive. I suspect the original is extremely expensive.
The Authentic, is $220+ USD, a nice clone, about $40 USD from what I've found. I absolutely love the look, BUT the one thing that most people don't see about it is that the Authentic, is made with Kamagong. An "Iron wood" found in the Philippines. This is much Ipe, a Brazillian "Ironwood" that I have had the opportunity to see up close and personal. If you look at the clone, up close, carefully, you will notice that you can see the small openings in the wood grain. You won't find that with the Kamagong because of its density. I think a quick pass with 1500 grt. croakus, and a much darker stain would resolve that. As well, there are a few very subtle differences in the Brasswork... easily remedied with a dremel and some jewlers rouge. I do think thats more my touch of personalization rather than an attempt to immitate the real thing. I'm sure given the density of Kamagong, vs. whatever type wood they used, carries a substantial weight difference. I know from experience, that Ipe (this is wood)has the same fire rating as concrete, and even bone dry, sinks immediately when put in water.

You know.. me telling you that, I already have plans made for doing it. It's just a tinkering thing for me. My mother said I never could leave well enough alone.

Onward.. through the Fog!

My clone is in the states and should be in my hands early next week barring any unseen delays. I'm really jazzed about this one! Big Grin
