    I like 'em Jas. I've made glass drip tips, and once tried to find SS inserts that look like that, but no go. All glass is fine for most people, but some people...not so much. lol I don't have the skills or equipment to do anything with stainless.

    Hey @Jas i had a busy day yesterday so only just seeing your thread now. They look great. I like the size of them. I get very hot hits from kangers standard dts so theyd be ideal. And I'm totally amazed (and clueless) how you make them. I saw homemade driptips in a b&m and they go for mad money.

    @Ally cheers mate, I think the reason they are expensive is down to the acrylic, I buy a 6" x 1 " long block and only really use half of it as the patterns are so inconsistent, I am looking into making my own acrylic blanks at the moment that way I can control the patterns.....
    I completed a nice green/yellow ming style one today but there is hardly any yellow in it lol
    I am half Way through yours mate just got too shrink them and then polish

    100%VG Did something go Blip?

    Awesome, Jas! :thumbs:

    I like the ones with the flame look! They appear to be wide bore, too.

    I've seen YouTube videos of the process. They milled that 510 and spun (I guess the term would be) the acrylic. They are works of art!

    Will get some more pics up of the latest batch.... and my next box mod :)

    Are you intending to set up a business to sell these? If so let me know and I can make you a vendor so you can start your own thread over in the vendors sub-forum.

    That great. Did you buy the bulk purchase from that hardware place or from a vape vendor? And, i like the multicoloured ones as I've never had one like that before.
