Here you go:
and it became worse after some time:
Thinking of pulling the trigger on an E-Nano today. Was originally going to get a Ghost MV1 but I don't need it to be portable (I have a Vapcap+CFX) and only use it with a matrix sidecar bubbler at my desk.
I've been skimming the thread and seen mention of a V2 that was originally timetabled by May this year. Any updates on that? I can't search because the string is too short.

@ACE OF VAPE U know I love your work?
I love your MAPLE NANO. (One day?)
My WALNUT work’s very well!
BLING is in fashion.
@Dynavaper got KUSH and LARRY OG + KIEF + ROSIN 50/50 thc & CBd = safer than milk?

This what I remember hearing about the burls, and it makes sense that the grain is not straight so less chance of a cleft splitting straight down a grain in the wood.
I don't doubt that it will happen but I see how it would be least seldom compared to the basic woods. You don't generally hear of the walnuts cracking very often either.
This one right here below hasn't cracked yet and it's been years.
Our current E-Nano with the removable cord is actually our V2. Feel free to DM me if you have any questions!
Good shot !
great efficiency !
have there been any other changes to the v2 model other than the cord?
I guess all this talk about cracks, splits and whatnot was too much for my maple nano to endure. When I went to use it yesterday, I discovered a full-length split in the wood. The dial was set at 6.5 when it cracked. I tried filling the crack with wood glue and clamping it with hose clamps, but the crack wouldn’t close much. Then I noticed the power socket has a crack too. It's disappointing as I just received this for my birthday last month.
This my only vaping device, so I hate to send it back and wait. Since it’s so new, I’ll contact EpicVape and ask about the possibility of sending me a replacement and then returning this one afterwards. It still works, and if it was just the wood I'd fill the crack and move on, but with the power socket broke too, I can see this causing problems down the road.
That sucks it definitely seems to be a recurring issue.
Both my maple and cherry units cracked but they were just the wood........good luck with your rma.
My walnut has not cracked yet but I suspect that's because I have yet to use it.
The last couple gongs I got from them were of poor quality also with one being so mishapened it barely fits on the post.
Yep, it does suck. I've contacted their customer service and we'll see what happens. My GonG does seem to be of good quality though.
Edited to add: I know real wood is nice but maybe they need to use some sort of indestructible composite material and put a wood veneer on it, or something that can handle the heat.
A small percentage do crack. It's unavoidable using wood and heat, (both my Taylor and Martin guitars have cracks in them) However it is a very small percentage or we wouldn't be able to sustain this biz since we replace them when it comes to our attention.
Please read the reply above about wood cracking. I've made a few from stabilized wood, but the blanks are expensive!
Frankly I find the patched crack adds to the unit..........for me anyways.
I will be ordering a maple burl exotic before too long I love these things!
Overall, no. However our current E-Nano's also have a small washer near the top end of the metal core to help reduce strain on the glass gongs and accessories.
We are able to send you a new unit before you send back your E-Nano so there is no downtime. It isn't something we put on our website as it's determined on a case by case basis and requires a deposit. However, I hate knowing anyone is without a working E-Nano. If you want to shoot over another email to firstname.lastname@example.org and use the subject line: "RMA Loaner" we can chat about the details.
@arb Send me an email email@example.com if you haven't already, let's get those gongs replaced!
Let me know if I missed anyone else's posts!
It does suck to have a nano crack, but IMHO it is worth the risk to have the beautiful solid wood. Like with musical instruments, I would not want a veneer or laminate replacement. I would see that as a reduction in quality, even if it improved its shelf life. I certainly understand other's opinions will vary.
Incredible customer service. I wish more companies were that thoughtful of their customers.
As I have a broken Nano incoming for repair from a mate, who acquired it 2nd hand, can somebody here please tell me, what’s the outer diameter of its heater cover/tube?
Apart from the functional defect (which hopefully shouldn’t pose much of a problem to fix, as long as the heater itself is not damaged -my money is on a lose terminal connection there or a broken cord, for which I hopefully already found a replacement-), it also comes without stems/GonGs and so I’d like to see, if I can find some fitting glass here on the European vape- or lab glass market, that can be utilised there or even cut some fitting stainless steel slide over tips myself, if I can’t find fitting glass.
Me mate might later on resort to getting some original stems/GonGs directly from Epicvape, but as importing Nano parts from the US to Europe still poses quite a hassle for the time being, I like to see first, if I can fix the unit and make it work again with what’s easily available here locally.
Having some days left before the little bugger arrives to have its problem fixed, I could then already place the orders for glass or steel, before it arrives. But for that, I need, as already stated, the OD of the heater tube.
Thanks in advance
ETA: Just found 3/8" stated at page 1 of this thread now. Is this still correct after 5+ years?
Yes it is.
Then I don't even need to order new stuff, as there is enough 10 and 11 mm thin walled ss tubing left here, that should fit, and the glass tubing I've got here comes with a nominal 10 mm ID, which with the typical tolerances is more akin to 9,5 mm anyway and might fit too.
All set then
Pipe dreaming (make that Nano dreaming)
So during the last rainy stretch, stuck inside with the computer, the Nano and some fine Rainy Day Women I doodled up a concept of a semi wireless Nano with a magnetic power connector.
what a great idea Driver 8!
How do I pick exotic woods on your website? The only option available is the 3 classic woods even if I pick deluxe or exotic kit.
