    That works on every vapcap, The beauty in the omni is being able to adjust it so you don't have to locate, then cover the carb. Two steps eliminated is easier.

    @pxl_jockey for my skelator I was thinking of housing it in an guitar wah pedal carcass with the heater being in the cord input. Which would make it a side input instead of from above. But may go with a smaller guitar diy pedal enclosure of some sort. Witch is not unlike the portsidrs enclosure.

    Here's a pic of my Omni helping with debris cleanup yesterday.

    I'm curious about the jarhead (?) skeletor (?) battery / mains heaters. I'm in Europe so I don't believe it can be shipped here, the voltage is different and it probably doesn't meet EU regulations at present. But people are saying it's a game-changer.... in what way? Is it just that you don't use flame and it is therefore more discreet or safer in certain circumstances? Or does it do more than that? Is the vapor better in any way than using a lighter? There's clearly a lot of love for this device, I'm just trying to figure out why. :peace:

    I'm in the EU and got one frome @Pipes, he sent me an EU power supply and it works no problem. I have it since a while but I just started experimenting because it was sitting in my friend's shop waiting for him to have some time to make me an enclosure as I bought the naked version.

    I absolutely love to heat my Omni quickly and without the need to stop what I'm doing to aim the torch and spin it, it really makes for a super easy vaping experience. I'm still having troubles using it with my bubbler as I prefer to extract everything in one hit and with the induction heater is very (very) easy to reach combustion temperature, I need to experiment more and nail the correct heating time. The few perfect hits I managed to get gave me the impression of a slightly better taste but at the moment I can't tell this for sure.
    I really like this device but I don't think I would like the battery powered version, at least not as a portable option as I find it to be too big thus negating one of my favorite aspects of the Vapcaps. Anyway I can see how it could be a great addition to your home setup if you frequently want to vape in different rooms without needing to keep plugging/unplugging the power cord.

    tl;dr
    Works in the EU with the right power supply, it's awesome for home use.

    @Ricardo - I'm in London, ordered a Jarhead on Sunday and got confirmation today. I will use it instead of a torch around the house. Can't wait to see what all the fuss is about! :tup:

    First timer, read about 400 pages of this beast in two days. Loving the M, it's turning out real consistent.

    First heat cycle is good, second heat cycle - after the herb has been thoroughly dried out the first time around - is mindblowing and the third is a nice mellow finisher. My ABV is coming out pretty close to black though, so not sure how potent it will be when I finally work up enough to bake it.

    Another point in this things favor is just how little weed it uses; I'm surprised the weed dealers aren't knocking down dynavape's doors for driving down their business.

    I received my nonavong yesterday. I ordered one before I found out that my omnivap fits snug into the wpa of the HGL so I was kinda of thinking I'd did a 'useless' buy, but I have to admit that it fills a gap of its own and I am really liking it. I ordered one thru Vaposhop so it isn't the new nonavong but nonetheless it's an amazing new piece for my collection

    Me too! :) Looked like it was going to take a long time to get the Portside and I really doubt I'll ever need it to be that portable, so I went with the Jarhead. Looking forward to it!

    Got a kick out of that. Reminds me of the images in a child's magazine (when I was a child) where you pick out objects camouflaged by their surroundings. Took me a minute to find your Omni. Glad it helps cleanup... ;)

    I don't think the IH changes the vapor in any way, that is really all a function of the VC. The IH allows you to heat your VC easily and consistently without having to pay close attention to where on the cap you are heating, how big your flame is, etc. The more precision elements of the heating process are skipped and the process is made more simple. If you started your VC experience with an IH (tho most won't), there would be little or no learning curve. And this is all a godsend for folks who may have difficulty with small hand movements and other dexterity issues. For those of us who have gotten comfortable using VapCaps they are simple to use and our torch skills continue to improve, but the torch is the only part folks are likely to find difficult.
    The JarHead and the PortSide are accessory heaters for the VapCaps. I'm sure @Pipes would be the first to tell you that the MAGIC is taking place in the VC.
    Ha ha. Yep. :)

    @fcmember - If you're in the USA you will get yours first so you will have to let me know how you get on. I'm now considering ordering a new vapcap for exclusive Jarhead use - NonoVong or Titanium Omni?

    @Ricardo, this link will help answer your questions:

    Although, I'm OK with using a lighter, I don't enjoy the act of 'doing it.' I get better & consistent vapor with it than I do using a lighter. I do like the level of discretion of using it outside, especially at night. For an analogy off the top of my head: it's like using the dishwasher as opposed to hand-washing. For me, it's a joy to use.

    This custom-made "hammered" & carbless Ti stem it's going to travel across the Atlantic ocean and hopefully soon enough will reach the hands of a fellow FC member.

    I seem to be one of the few that doesn't prefer the induction heater to a torch. I think my induction heater is neat and I don't regret buying it but I get much better results with the torch. I have never been able to figure out how long past the click to go with the IH, 9 times out of 10 I either end up with a weak hit or I end up roasting the herb more than I meant to. I still use it when I'm in a windy situation but otherwise it's torch by a landslide.

    Day 3: Power and internet still out thanks to Irma. Cold showers aren't as bad as I thought. Just got a PM that my Skeletor is ready :p

    I can attest, this is a natural response when getting a Pipes IH

    Congrats! Thinking about picking one up after the Skeletor comes in. Jar for home and Skele for travel. Let us know how you like it :brow:

    Thanks to Dynavap, this emoji was me the whole storm :ko:
    Even with family in the next room. Very discreet.

    I have to agree with Squiby on that, the hammered Ti is exquisite. Could you give us an idea what you sold it for? Just curious. I am NOT handy with creative arts.

    I agree. The IH is fantastic but I enjoy the ritual and results from a lighter. I use my IH at night bedside because it is convenient and quiet. During the day I prefer a single jet lighter, specifically the cylinder flint model. It roasts my load to perfection.

    Squiby ,I'll be glad to help you with the details ,if you would like.
    You will need a dremel and some soft polishing wheels ( #425)
    https://www.dremel.com/en_US/products/-/show-product/tools/425-emery-impregnated-disc
    Use the rotating wheel parallel to the stem length.NOT " crossing" lengthwwise -like it "rests" at the following pic :
    [​IMG]
    Do not apply excess force.Gentle moves.
    Have a cup of water aside,to clean from debris and cool the stem during work.
    Overall it is quite easy technique.But better practice a bit first on a scrap piece of (soft) metal ,like aluminium ,copper or better bronze.

    $15 for material/tools needed & workmanship
    and $15 for shipping & postage (express registered mail) .
    Total $30.
    A fair price ,me thinks.

    Also here is a better pic that shows the real hue (under natural daylight) of the anodised Ti hammered stem :

    Stem looks really nice. I think you're severely undervaluing your workmanship :2c:

    Every workmanship & art is priceless really.
    And I'm not trying to make money here.
    A fellow FC member liked the stem and wished for one.
    Since I've the power to make his wish become true ,then why not ?
    It's not everyday that somebody has the power and chance to fulfill other people's wishes.

    It feels great making others happy.
    It feels much better than having a full wallet.
    Much better.
    At least for me .

    @stardustsailor

    Thanks so much for the tutorial! I have a Drexel and the bits you mention and have had the occasion to grind steel and cast iron (cast iron is surprisingly easy to grind) on various home projects. I bought the 100mm length of the 12mm OD, so I'll have lots of material to practice on. I'll try to round the edges at the end since it will be thicker than the standard 10mm profile of the tip.

    Fun, fun, fun! Can't wait!!!
