RE: What did you get today?
I cancelled it when it came up with the dreaded "restocking" message. I'm waiting on an Aqua and a Prometheus just now. And an Origin, and a Sentinel, a pair of cheap Kick modules and a couple of drip tips.

Sounds like I was lucky to have done so Smile

No doubt a sorted Squape will arrive soon enough.

I believe that "version B" is the one that is sorted plus it's cheaper.  I've debated ordering that one as well.

RE: What did you get today?
I wasn't sure till I tried it. It's easy enough to pop the tank off to check fluid level so that concern lasted about 5 seconds. Just need to polish off the logo now - it is ugly. There's a bench grinder where I'm staying so will need to dig around to see if there's a polishing wheel for it hidden in a cupboard somewhere.

Oh yes, and I got snow. Not a lot of it, but the assistants are loving it!

Nice one Don!

I got a bottle of PG and a bottle of Welsh pipe liquid - not sure I'm going to be too keen on it though... it smells just like my first couple of DIY attempts LOL Big Grin

Those jade tips are nice. Stuck one on the second Taifun (0.8 ohms)and put it on the brass M16.

The brass Origin clone awaits an Aqua - hopefully with the hybrid pin. The Origin also came with a Kick tube so it might even get one put in it - the package with the (SS/copper/brass) Private V2 and the Kick clones in it has arrived at Heathrow so I should get it tomorrow or Wednesday.

Now to check their voltage drop.

RE: What did you get today?
The Origin fire button will fire under its own weight, even with an igo-w on it. Which matches it in diameter. Need to find a video on it.

Took the switch apart on the Origin to see if it had a locking ring. It does but it is as useless as most such are. I couldn't find it till I'd pulled the thing apart.

However, there's no spring but two magnets instead and the firing pin appears to be copper. You can adjust the height of the firing pin but it's easiest to ignore the silly bit in the middle of the button and just twiddle the screwed copper bit in or out. I reckon it's actually better than the brass original that Todd reviewed unless you really want to use 18350 or 18500 cells.
