Hello everyone and good morning, so I had a great weekend, my girl came up Friday evening, I found out the local store started cooking crawfish on Fridays evenings now as well as saturday mornings, boys and I got 10lbs My girl doesnt do crawfish, no sweat more for us! Geez they were super spicy just the taters and the corn made your mouth burn and forehead sweat, love em when they are like this, suck the heads eat the tails lol! My oldest and youngest had shooting sports competition early saturday morning. We had a 2 hour drive south to Paulding, yeah was a first for us, I have been alot of places here but never to Paulding. Was a lot of kids there from all over, we were there for 6 hours getting all our shoots in, boys did great and had a blast literally! Sucks though, it was so far out in the country they had a generator for power and logging scores to show winners, somehow the generator fried the printer so had to put off the winners for a week or so to be sent to our county and then be posted. @Reflections I know you will appreciate this, both my boys did good, I must admit, there was some great shooters there, totally drilling the bullseye, saw a senior girl that destroyed the target with her browning .22 with red dot scope, wow was very neat seeing all the other competitors, really lets ya know what you need and how you gotta improve but overall had a great time. The sun came out got almost 90 degrees, even got some sunburn. We left there and I gotta be honest I like antiquing, we stopped at a flea market, was nicer one I hadnt seen one this nice before. I like junk, this one was very nice, had neat stuff and really nice clothing for women. I got some neat duck type stuff and even a really cool African wood mask, its about 20"H x 12"W yall know how I dig wood. My girl got a really nice outfit that looks hot on her rrrrr! Grabbed a snow cone each before we left and headed north bound for home! Has been a great weekend, got some bad weather rolling in, one model showed we may get 8" of rain, just had a ton of rain not sure where we will put all this. Tornado watches are posting up for the night ahead, just that time of year is all. I got out a butt load of Arizer stuff, so happy to have it all out of the way including a few WoodScents packages headed out to Canada as well as Brazil to dealers there. my dealers are very excited to get get logs there in there stores to offer to their customers as am I to get logs out to places that arent familiar with these type vapes. This is the start yall, WS logs are going global!!! I didnt get any WS stuff done as I had hoped for retail but have cleared the backlog and will get started on WS retail stuff in the am rocking and rolling, am going to do my best to get 30 done and ready to go, will let you all know when they are ready to roll out again. The launch didnt go without bumps along the way, I have learned alot from the roll out and am better prepared for the next batch and future pieces. I appreciate you alls cooperation and not freaking out on me for the issues with it. I have found solid vendors for parts and supplies that will be very integral for the future. Alot of people may think its just a piece of wood with a hole in it and how hard could it be, I assure you all there is so much more to it than that, just making this happen has been a big big learning lesson and one I will not forget nor take for granted. I did some intense testing the last few days, I ran the WS at a continuous 650 degrees for 50 straight hours, the outside body got warm, not hot, warm to the touch bout not hot. I wanted to test it at exceedingly high temps for an extended period of time in the Cherry model. I tore it apart and was glad to see not surprised there was absolutely no degradation nor deterioration to the high temp oring that sits below the Ti base so it floats nor anywhere in the WS upper cavity at all. There was a slight discoloration where the mounting screws went through the base into the bottom wall, very slight to say the least. I put a high temp K type probe in the WS logo cutout within the Ti base and after several hours of extreme heat the probe only reached 250 degrees, this means there is very I mean very slight heat transfer from metal to wood ensuring the WS longevity at extreme temps. Keep in mind I do not recommend leaving the WS running at its highest setting for more than a session or two, once you have done your deed simply dial it back a bit to 4 or 5 on your dial. There is really no need to leave it on for extended periods or even for lengthy adjustment times, it quickly will reach and attain those high temps in no time at all. I am extremely pleased with these findings and can not be happier with the results of these tests. This just proves the WoodScents is a true war horse, surely a Trojan Horse and even a wolf in sheep's clothing! @CarolKing My lady I appreciate all your posts, been popping in here and there seeing the goings on! you are right there has been alot of thinking going into the WS over the years, from starting with a high temp heating lamp with closed in heating core housing, to open cavity to heater cartridge, there has been many changes along the way including the name from VaporBomb to WoodScents, it has come along way to where it is now with Titanium components as well as heavy hitter heater. With all the thinking that was alot not thought about and learned from forgetting to do so. I want to address this once, I was angry when I posted my last, what I know is what I know, what I do is as I have always done, its a love and passion that I feel and know inside, I do what I do cause thats who I am and why I do for all that I offer it too. I didnt think for a sec there would be any back stabbing or tearing me down but when others wallets are affected you start to see true colors. There arent any negatives here, smarter than that comments here were ripped off from here and posed as others at other places on the net to cast me and the WS in a crummy way and degrade myself and what I do. You and everyone else are spot on, I wont be able to make everyone happy and I knew that from the beginning. All I want is honesty, if I cant make ya happy by all means let me know and I will do my best to make you happy by any means necessary! In the end what goes around comes around and we will all get whats coming to us in the end that is certain! You are so right the WS gets really hot really fast, it only takes a little to medicate and get you where you need to be, Thats a great thing I have always liked about logs, a little goes a long way, conservation is preservation! So dig that pic, never heard of Gorilla Glue, not that I hear of much down here am super jealous. As far as VC options I am not sure exactly which tips will fit the WS but would say that all the newer versions will fit the WS and hoping @VapCap George will stop by and explain for you all which tips will fit. I know he just released a new model that should be a real winner, I am hoping it will fit as well and that he will let us all know for sure. You were right I have been with the boys and my girl, its almost spring/summer here so its go go go! Thanks again for all your posts and input, I appreciate you! @HellsWindStaff Hey hey bro, been some time, I think I remember us speaking bout re-purposing that piece way back, I would be happy to do that for ya! Let me know when you wanna do something for your Bday, I will get ya fixed up for sure! You are right, everyone has an opinion, no matter what just like an asshole everyone has one lol and most often they stink! @CarolKing does have a show stopper no doubt, the flaming BE burl are in the same line, I am excited to work em in, not sure I will get to them just yet as I have a bunch already shaped up just needing a little work before they are ready for the big day. I appreciate the kind words, I cant say enough how my girl makes me a happy man. Just her soft sweet caring voice is enough to make the harshest heart soften, I have never been this close to a woman before in my life and appreciate the blessing she is, God is great my man! @Aezhenn You know you are right and if the rest of you all dont know my man here is a hella woodsman himself, I have a few vape accessories left made by the man himself with alot more greatness to come! At my site I have some really nice VC storage tubes and great wooden vape stands, get over and have a look.
