RE: What did you get today?
Is that some sort of hookah arrangement you are planning Bob?

Looking good!

RE: What did you get today?
Turns out the Heron clone is 20x1mm threaded so instahybrid on a JM22 clone I happen to have lying around. It also comes with a polished SS ring to allow it to hybridise on a Paps X tube.

It's clean - there is no oily taste as I suck on it. I'll try it without filter floss (I think I've got plenty of this in the loft somewhere - I used to run a 400 litre fish tank in the living room). First impression - this one needs drilling - it is a tight draw even with the airflow control ring removed. I wonder if the air tube comes out like a Taifun one? After closer examination, I think not, it seems to be machined out of the deck. The airflow control ring is not moving by accident - there's an O ring under it to make sure it stays put. 

I have a brass Paps clone coming to sit it on - ordered several days before the Heron but has yet to hit the UK - at least it left HK on Monday and hasn't yet hit the Royal FMail database.

Looking in the FastTech forums you need to put a fatter O ring at the base of the chimney to prevent leaks. I may yet be searching the loft for filter floss to wrap round the chimney. The vapour chamber is tiny which ought to help flavour.

I've thrown in a quick build using (not recommended) 3mm silica and 3/4 wraps of 0.6mm round a 3mm screwdriver shaft coming to about half an ohm. I'll have to make a smaller coil as it is too close to the top of the chamber. Time to vape it for a bit and see if it leaks...

Something's not right - the JM22 switch is burning my fingers. It's pulling north of 25A (100+W) which isn't right either. Oddly enough the vapour isn't fearsomely hot. Turns out the Private V2 is 20x1mm with the 510 removed. But rebuild time without shorts this time.

RE: What did you get today?
Don I wraped 5 wraps of 0.6mm around a 3mm shaft and it comes to 0.3 ohms, 3/4 wraps is going to be lower... are you sure you have a short and that it's just not the switch that can't take the amps ?

RE: What did you get today?
Could be - but it was drawing way too much current for the vapour it was making. More research needed there.

I also got a pair of PMMA tanks for the Aquas. I'm not yet decided on whether or not I like the look of them.
