    You are correct that it does not go too far into the Ti tip. I thought all condenser tubes were ss except for the omnis, but maybe I'm wrong about that. In a non-omni setup, the tip end of the condenser is flush with the end of the body/stem and putting on any tip will cover the condenser a small amount (5mm?) I'm simpy pushing it a little more (2.5mm) to restrict the airflow a bit more.

    Like @Squiby said, I have an Etsy storefront and I can be reached on the forums here through PM or my thread. I don't always have a huge stock of stems available so I encourage custom ordering if you don't see what you want. I'm working at my lathe this week and likely will be until the end of the year.

    There should be some interesting things coming soon, I've been experimenting with resin casting and glow in the dark powder.

    Guys,

    How do you carry your VapCaps around? Or, asked differently, how would you carry it with no tube and no DynaStash?

    I have a "tube shaped hemp bag" with zipper (maybe 2" diameter) that holds my essentials. Two VC's in tubes, couple small glass wax containers that hold ground material, a torch lighter and my magnet stand. I like to keep the VC's in their tubes and when I bought my omni xl there was no long tubes available - but it turns out that the xl fits perfectly in a 109mm (J size) doob tube and those are readily available online - I got three for 5 bucks on ebay.

    the more I am reading the more I get confused.

    If you have a Ti vonavong and an M
    two functional vapcap.

    you can build a M with the Ti tip mounted. okay

    but can you mount the wooden vong stem on the M internals?

    nobody has confirmed that it is possible.
    george's video looks strange.
    he's holding the tip in place with his finger.

    I just want to keep my ti ti of my vong,
    get an M,
    switch tips,
    and maybe sell the SS vong.

    would be the cheapest option to get a functional, durable Ti Vapcap.
    but this only works out, if the residual parts can be put together to become a functional SS vong.

    You can buy the Ti Tip by itself. That's quite a bit cheaper than an M + a vong and you get to keep the spare cap and S/S tip.

    The S/S condenser and the Ti tips get along fine – there was no Ti condenser initially. It's the S/S tips and the Omni condenser specifically that don't get along.

    Maybe its been too long since i cleaned my vapcaps but how in the hell do you get those pesky orings to stay on the inner tube? Cant get them to lock in and no matter what i do all 3 of them end up at the end by the mouthpiece....

    If I couldn't use a tube or dynastash I would likely make a leather carrier for it. I've dabbled in leatherworking from time to time and like working with the material.

    Joined the Dynavap family today. Awaiting shipping confirmation on a Cocobolo Omnivap with a Titanium Tip. I ordered the fat mouth piece to use as a WPA and some extra screens and a magnet stand. Really looking forward to the VC experience.

    Yes, the M body is a standard length stem which means that it can be replaced with a vong stem. I just put together an SS tip and M condensor in my cocobolo vong stem. If you reference the DV compatibility chart you'll see that Ti Vong is the same overall dimentions as the M. Swap the tips and you're done.

    Can't wait for my portside mini! @Pipes using the black case will match my blackwood nonavong nicely.


    @stickstones I purchased off potv for black Friday and noticed my nonavong didn't have the textured side like they show in the dynavap video so I don't have to search for the carb Everytime.... Does this mean it's old stock or did they do away with the scraped side on nonavongs ??

    .........................................................................
    It is advisable to clean before the first use.
    At a minimum, a q-tip thru the innards. I used a q-tip dipped in a hot water/Dawn dishsoap mixture and then rinsed in hot water.
    Note that I have gotten a tiny smidge of "black gunk" out of new VCs. Maybe machining oil ???

    Others use ISO (alcohol) but I found that to be overkill/ not needed as Dawn gets out normal gunk and is much less toxic.
    I try to go with the least aggressive technique that gets the job done.

    Not sure about that. I do know that all their stock is very new...like received from dynavap in the last two weeks, so it should be what they are selling now.

    A long way back..
    I have not touched a torch since a month or more ago when I got my first Pipes skelly....just got a jarhead for my second location......It is the best invention since the vapcap!



    They changed the design...you have the new one. You can do a few diff things to indicate the carb. I used a small colored tape/sticker by it....or you can file/grind your own grooves or rounded notch in it. I used a dremel to carve out a nice notch around the carb so it was super easy to feel with no visible indicator needed.

    I found even with the stock ribs/grind marks...it was still hard to find. So I tried both my methods and just settled on the rounded notch on the hole was the best. I sold the body to someone as I only use my vapcap through water.....I use a solid glass body now as I have no need for a carb.

    I noticed that if you put an x ring inside the nonavong in front of the carb hole it seals off the condenser to the tip. Do you think it's ok to expose the xring to heat like that?

    I'm on the fence with the carb hole .. sometimes I like it. Others I'm looking for it and loosing that initial heat right after the two clicks.

    Also need to look into @stardustsailor carbless customs . He's getting Really good at making these babies pop!

    I mentioned earlier last week I purchased a dynavap M for a buddy I was trying to convert. He loves it so far . I think that the ritiual of lighting something and bringing it your lips really makes vaping natural with the vapcap.

    Huge shout out to DynaVap and George for comming up with a cool little tool and here's to everyone out there who's breathing a little easier after making the switch!:clap::tup::love:


    Peace and love to my FC fam (and fellow Dyna vapers)


    Edit @stickstones thanks for the clarification

    When you put your cap on, point the digger outer at the carb hole for a visual reference as well.
    And @elykpeace that is a popular mod to take the carb out of play.
