Sorry to hear that Bob Sad

That's a massive failure rate of Hekvapor products and one company to be avoided for sure. Any vendors out there reading this and selling Hekvapor products should honestly reconsider your purchasing options.

I shall never be using them!

RE: UPDATED! The Big Dripper RDTA clone
That's a bummer Bob. So of the five known hekvapor devices, three have been faulty, one should never have got past quality control and I'm now scared to try to rebuild or rewick the Big Dripper. Better get it out in the post so someone else can break it. Smile 

Considering what I paid for it though...

@Bob - It might be possible to drill out and tap the posts (Though the problem may be that they have been made of case-hardened cheese) but finding suitable grub screws is a pain.

RE: UPDATED! The Big Dripper RDTA clone
That should be a starter as the posts are easily removable - well the negative posts are, the positive one not so much...

RE: UPDATED! The Big Dripper RDTA clone
Considering a replacement can be had for a measly $10-$15 it's almost not worth the effort. I'm thinking of getting the shorty version. That way I'll have two different tank sizes and either should work on the same base.

RE: UPDATED! The Big Dripper RDTA clone
good news on the big dripper
I put some strong glue on the end of the allen key and stuck it to the problem grubscrew
I managed to remove the screw and luck would have it its the grub screws that are soft not the threading on the posts
I found a small threaded bolt in the garage and have got the big dripper workingGood
I am going to try and get some better grubscrews from a local hardware shop and swap them over
hopefully this could be an easy fix for anyone else having the same problem

There is a hekvapor model on ebay for $0.01 w/ free shipping. Who wants to bet that is a quality product?

I really want to get that just to see if it's even usable. And if not, I've only lost a penny.
