    orchid base and kayfun V4 evaporation chamber modified to fit a full sized kayfun tank. if you don't know why, it's for one better wicking, more capacity, access to coil and wicks without having to empty the tank and best of all tool less fill. still waiting for the epoxy to cure and it should be good to go.

    Nice job, Eric. Gonna clean that chimney up after it cures? Need the finishing touch.

    You know, the two-piece Kayfun top cap might be nice on that too. Totally stealth Orchid! :D

    That's great work, Eric. I admire all of you who can get creative like that with your gear. I'm just here poking around with curiosity.
