When sucking on it don't suffice, you can always inject it into the blood stream

Okay...I'm dying to know why you have a syringe in your tank, Al?

Check out my post "godzillamizer v3 revisited", it explains the 3ml hypo ::) It is the same ID as the original clearomizer, but much thicker walls so it's more hardy

Incidently, I left the writing on the hypo, too lazy to scrub it off. Next one will be cleaned off. Any idea how to remove the lettering from the outside of the syringe?

I've been trying to not have my markings come off. I use them for DIY mixing and I gingerly wash them afterwards.

Actually the markings are cool if they will stay. In fact, the 3ml mark is correct, funny, huh?

How about using a leather hole punch for the hole in the rubber stopper just lube it with vg/pg and it cuts like a hot knife through butter and nice clean cut

You have a great idea there!! Where do you get leather punches? Is Tandy Leather still around?

I just remember how I took off paint on plastic lens. Nail Polish Remover, the kind with Acetone in it. Or just Acetone. It removes paint and won't dull the plastic.

Thanks much. Checked it out, that's a nice selection!!

My wife told me she has a set somewhere in her crafts stuff, her Dad used to do leatherwork so she has his old tools somewhere ??? If she doesn't find them, I will get me a set ordered.

It's been over a month using the same tanks and cartos and occasionally I would experience a siphoning effect where after filling a fresh tank it would leak thru the carto center hole.
This has happened with one particular tank from a different vendor.
I found that blowing some juice out thru the drip tip and then holding my finger on the center bottom hole while still blowing would alleviate the siphoning.
Other than those rare occurrences, the tanks and washers are perfectly sound with NO leaking and plenty of draw.

Update:
Like I said, I've been using the same cartos for a month. The siphoning was caused because the draw was a bit harder so I had to suck a little harder which caused the siphoning. It's like siphoning a gas can with a hose.
Again... only on the one particular carto has this happened.
After several refills, periodic cleaning is required for your carto. Blow out the old juice and run cool water thru the top and continue blowing repetitively. Blow out the water and let sit for a day or two and your carto will be as good as new.

Very good advise. It's handy to have 2 or 3 cartos on hand while waiting for the carto to dry.
I haven't experienced the siphoning as yet. I have about 2 weeks of use on my carto.
The seals are as tight as a crabs butt with NO leaks. I find it pretty easy to pop off the caps and refill.

I got all excited about this when I saw it thinking I'd be able to use some off the shelf items from a hardware store. Then I realized you're using 3/4 ID. I've got 16ft of 3/4 OD poly carb =\

Been hunting for vinyl grommets everywhere and hte only places I can find them are online.

If your 3/4 OD tube has a 1/16" wall your I.D. is 5/8". You need a 5/8" O.D. Faucet flat washer and NOT a 5/8" washer.
5/8" washer is actually 13/16" O.D. and the 5/8L is 29/32" O.D.

You need a 3/8" Faucet Flat washer. ACE Hardware sells them: http://www.acehardwareoutlet.com/productDetails.aspx?SKU=45082
or
Danco 35068B Flat Faucet Washer 3/8L (11/16" OD) http://www.acehardwareoutlet.com/productDetails.aspx?sku=45084

As breaktru pointed out, if you use the same size washer OD as the tube ID, you should drill your atty/carto center hole a little smaller so the  atty/carto expands the O.D. of the washer for a snug fit.
The "L" washers are 1/16" wider.

how stable is just the washer if you don't do the metal washer on top? worried it'll twist or something and leak :p

I have both w/ metal and w/o metal. Also have same dia as tube and oversized washers. Both work good.
Just take care not to push the rubber washer w/ no metal washer in to far.
The metal washer is as wide as the Tube O.D. so it prevents the rubber washer from going in to far.
It's stable and won't fall out. Just maybe easier with the metal washer to press in. Suggestion, don't pry up on metal washer to remove or the washers might separate. Push carto in to tube and then back out. Use the edge of the carto to pop out the washer. It's really quite simple and quick.
A note: gluing the metal washer can be tricky. Sometimes it works excellent and sometimes the glue doesn't take.
I used all kinds of glue. Crazy, Super, Gorilla, etc...... Perhaps the best was crazy glue. Just a tiny smear and careful not to get it on your fingers, carto or tube.

Has anyone tried making tank mods / using atomizers with them, as opposed to cartomizers? I'm guessing people use cartomizers for the dual coils? I actually found a site that sells dual coil atomizers. I imagine these would be just as good (if not better?) in such mods.

I really have no idea, I've never tried a tank mod myself, I've been debating ordering one and trying it, then decided they're overpriced and I'd rather futz around with making one myself (=

BTW, another question. Why do you guys leave the filling in the cartomizers in tank mods? If the thing is submerged, wouldn't it be better to leave it out?  Or is that your "carto saver" for when the level gets to low?

Not sure about removing the filler, I would imagine it may leak when laying flat or upside down. It's only a guess mind you.

My first tank was with a standard atomizer. I can't remember how well it worked  :-\ . I received the D.C. cartos the next day and replaced it.
Don't remember it leaking. I forget so don't hold me to it.

It looks like you put the grommet inside a rubber washer. Is that correct?

What do you use to sharpen the blade of the copper tube cutter you using? I am using the same stuff but it is creating a ridge that shrink the size of my tube ID.

Actually I have never sharpened a cutting wheel. They make replacement wheels. The trick is to gradually increase the cutting depth to minimize the indent/ridge. It takes a much longer time but a better cut is achieved this way. I sometimes use my dremel cutting wheel at a slow speed so not to melt the tube. Steady hand is required. Then run the cut end flush (parallel) to the side of a grinding wheel for a square cut removing any uneven edge (slow speed).
To remove any inside burrs or indents from the tube cutter, I use this... as shown in post #62

Hi breaktru,

thanks for the image. it is good. because my friend has lent me his dremel kit. anyway I have to go at a very slow speed for it right? so that there won't be any scratches on the tube.

Yup, makes it easier to get caps on and off. Prevents rubber washer from falling through and seating cockeyed

QUESTION: Who makes the largest see thru (bowl) tank. I hate filling my kan pro2 three or four times a day. It holds only about 3ml. I'd like at a minimum at least twice that much volume. Hopefully, it will be 510.                      Bruce

The Taifun GT holds 5ml.
