    Hello All Vapo's,

    this is now our final unit after many trials and changes and fine tuning.

    If the handle was more-or-less in-line with the delivery nozzle, then you might find that rotation of the device would be more 'egonomically-friendly'. I did.

    ??Isn't it some advantage to be able to see the temp easily with display on the top? Can tell when charge vaporized and when can reload.

    Could electrical cord be inside handle and come out the end of the handle???

    @ little_john - I assume you mean 'ergo' not 'ego' - we have them with both and it does not make a diff. particularly when the unit sits upside down to re-load.

    @mgolden - I rest it normally upside down on the treated hive and having the cord come out of the handle would pull it down more. Or, one trips over it and it fly's to the ground.

    Evolution is a constant.

    Thanks, Joerg K.

    Has anyone used a 3/16” outside diameter outlet tube? I have some from an old faucet and it is a lot stiffer and kind of thick walled than the 1/4” tube I have that came in a coil.

    I am not a welder or solderer. Anyone ever consider this? Just curious...

    sc-bee,
    I love JB Weld. It is good stuff in my book.
    I don't think that it will conduct the heat to the bottom of the cup where the thermocouple is.
    That in itself will throw off your temps and over heat the OA.

    Sorry my post above had a typo in it. I meant has anyone used a 3/8” od outlet tube. As mentioned it is thick walled. Ticker than a normal copper water pipe.

    I started off using a 3/8" OD outlet but found due to the large size the flow of vapor was so fast that it spewed out unsublimated OA, I then went down to 1/4"and was still not happy then eventually settled on 3?16" outlet pipe. There is some 3/16" copper coated brake tubing available and it will weld to the coupling with stasilv but I have not tested it for clogging.

    JB-Weld withstands the heat ok - but doesn't expand to any significant degree (unlike copper) with a rise in temperature. I found that after a dozen or so heat-cool cycles (on different equipment to Johno's) the JB-Weld lifted off where it was attached to a relatively smooth surface.
    Suggest you try and find a guy who brazes - like an exhaust (muffler ?) shop - such a small joint shouldn't cost much, if you leave it with him until the next time he does some brazing.

    I used JB weld ( regular stuff not high heat version ) to seal the seams of my copper dish OAV units
    ( made from copper pipe and flattened, using glow plugs) . they are about 3 years old and the seams
    are still sealed. I think you might be surprised how well this stuff works.

    Can anyone who has received white silicone caps share their views on the comparison between the white and red caps. It appears to me that the white caps are more temperature resistant than the red Mocap ones and do not seem to wear as much.

    Do you have a link to the white caps?

    No, they are available by the hundred from Harman Corporation, I found them bought a hundred and have included one of the white caps with the vaporizers I have supplied since January 2019. They appear superior to the red ones but I would like some feedback before switching to the white Harman caps.

    White or clear? I found clear ones on their website. I might try them out.

    Johno,
    Will you be offering the white Harman caps for sale?
    I would like to try them myself and give you my feedback.

    Here are the two caps together, more white than clear I think. If I go in the white cap direction I could probably sell for about $2 each plus shipping. I have used the white cap for a while and have not seen any deterioration on the white cap, it seems a little harder to remove from the bowl when sublimation is complete but not really a problem. With the mocap caps there is also the red residue that comes off of the cap as they wear and get cleaned some of which if it gets into your OA could leave more residue in the bottom of the bowl.
