Hi guys, I am very close… doing the final sanding and polishing this week and then they are off to the engraver. I know what I had told those of you at vapebash and you probably met Jimmy (my supposed partner in this) there with me. Well He had left me high and dry doing this all myself not helping one bit since then 🙁 therefore instead of one sanding while one was cutting I was left to do it all on my own. On top of the fact, that I am being foreclosed on so trying to move and relocate a shop in the mist of things really hasn’t helped me at all I can only apologize so much I have gave you all a super price considering the ton of work I have invested into this (just look at epipemods prices for a damascus pipe (double my price) and really half the labor involved) I told you all I will be giving you a matching drip tip and some juice as well. I never thought this would take as long as it has and if I had your money I would offer to give it back to you. I have spent 20,000 on this project and countless hours of work to only make a few thousand and on top of that, I have had virtually no income coming in since my time has been spent on this project and relocating instead of more of my normal mods being made to sell. I have always delivered an exceptional product in all of my business ventures and they usually far exceed the expectations of my customers.
I have spoke to a shop to have my next run done completely on a CNC mill vs all my time and work into them which will also be more exacting tolerances vs being hand made.
I work very hard to give you my best and that is all I can do is give the best from me to you, I am only one man.
been tons of cutting
Lots of drilling / tapping
and I’ve taken tons of metal slivers and cuts as well LOL
The screw that secures the bottom plate is held stationary by means of a few wraps of teflon thread tape so if this is removed you will need to re-wrap it to prevent it from loosening
