    I think the new ones does come with a dimmer. As for the ordering, just send @RastaVapa a PM and he'll come back to you when he can.

    Thanks for coming to me @Drexciya
    Glad to hear they come with dimmer cords now.

    I've sent a pm to @RastaVapa just waiting for reply. Hopefully there's some In stock or a short waiting list.

    Anyone had both a HGL and enano? How do they compare

    The wait list isn't short, I'm looking at a year wait for mine soon. Nick has illness though and it was expected to have an unspecified wait.

    Sad you sold the Enano, love that log but the step-down transformer is an annoying addition

    I been looking at the idea to convert it to 220 but it's still on the drawing board

    Hi there @Cl4ud3
    So have you been waiting a year for yours? And you are due to take delivery soon?
    I have read back and see that nick/rastavapa has been unwell.

    Wish him a speedy recovery or a comfortable life.

    Hope to make contact asap to get on the list and iron out an order.

    I sold it and got a Helios vaporizer. But I'm wishing I kept the enano for smaller amounts.

    I may take advantage of the black Friday sale at epic vape. But I would like to check out these HGL too.

    No idea where I am currently on the list, but it will be a year next week. Still I'm in no rush as I know about real life issues.

    Yes definitely health before business.
    I hope to make contact and I think I'll put my name down for one and try and forget about it.

    My god! this vape handles kief admirably, I'm pulling out the bigger clouds from some grinder's kief bowls. The short wong is perfect for this purpose.
    Is @RastaVapa still get health issues? there is no more new HGL's around.... I wish the best for him!

    Not sure where I am on the list either, but I'm pretty sure I'm in front of @Cl4ud3. Like way in front.
    Lol, just playing man! I've been down much less than a year, I've not been combustion-free for a year. the last time @RastaVapa had a nice email back-n-forth, I told him there was an extra £20 in it for him if I miraculously jumped to the front of the queue. ;) Yeah, that didn't happen either. I gotta quit lying! I mean, we did chat but I didn't attempt to bribe him.

    @PPN Yes, afraid so; last time he checked in with an update is on the previous page. If you're talking more recently than that, you should PM @phattpiggie as he most likely has the lowdown. PP knows everything.

    EDIT: I probably need to add that it was @Cl4ud3 who kindly helped me get on the list in the first place. And all he gets in return from me is this grief. Doesn't seem fair, does it? He's so cool!

    I've not spoken with him, yet. Been snowed under with the general shit life throws at us.
    This is as much as I know for now.

    Hi @RastaVapa Have an happy new year and I wish you the best for your health (I'm a bit late but I'm anxious to know how you are feeling now ...)

    I'm vaping some loads of Mobydick strain in this beloved Blackwood log you made for me, in your honor.

    This looks interesting!
    I was about to order one of Ed's TNT Woodscent logs but this one is muuuuuuuuuch cheaper even if i buy a VapCap on the side. What would you guys do? Is this just as good as the Woodscent?

    @RastaVapa has not seen on this forum since December of last year. I don't think that this is really on option. He had a nice one turned for me that was just waiting on internals but sadly health problems have kept him from completing.

    Yes, fingers crossed here too. I'm sure we all wish @RastaVapa a speedy recovery.
    I don't have an order in with HGL but I check this thread daily for some good news about him.
    Such talent is a precious thing.

    I really hope he is ok ...
    I was using one of the OG HGL untill a few months ago .. Lately the core slided off the wood.

    @RastaVapa I hope you are ok and that you'll be back here soon.
    We know it isn't easy to share when you got a life battle ! Feel free to give news whenever you feel comfortable.

    Vibes to you !

    Just a short post to mention I have a butane powered vaporizer made by @RastaVapa , he sent me one for testing purposes:science: a while ago before to have health concerns...

    It's a small&simple vape I like to use in a sort of dabbing manner, very similar to the DLX from DreamGreen but the heating top part offer the possibility to use a large panel of bowls! I like it!

    I'll post a pic soon of this contribution @RastaVapa offered to the vaping world. He was sceptik about the sales since there was already others similar designed vaporizers on the market.

    Do you have any updates on how he is doing?
    I noticed that his username is no longer on FC...
    This does not bode well.

    I'm afraid I don't have any news.
    Must admit I've nearly contacted him on a couple of occasions and backed out.
    He and his family are lovely people and it upsets me to think how life shit on them from a great height.

    Please don't misunderstand my intentions here!
    I am only wanting to find out if he is still with us and making this world a better place!

    I sincerely wish him and his entire family all the best.

    Thankyou everyone for your concern and messages, i have been very ill mainly from the medicine to treat my blood cancer, so much that i have now been taken off of it as i was loosing my mind also. only now a few months after stopping the injections i am getting back on my feet and my mind is clearing.
    I am now on a drug trial at guys hospital in london and so far everything is going well and i'm starting to have a life again , While i was really ill my son brought a new lathe(old one kept breaking) and started tinkering and now is part of the team , im really proud of him...

    Things have changed a little the heatcore is screwed in place and has been redesigned slightly ,also the stems and wongs have a 316 ss inner sleeve to make reclaiming easier and an o-ring to hold the ferrule in place.

    I now have inline PWM dimmers for all the kits that go out as it just makes more sense, all i need to know is who still wants one? , i know its been a while but i do still have a list of everyone in order but i know things have changed and i dont expect everyone to still want one, just pm me if you are still interested and i will start another list but keep the same order if that make sense.

    The new lathe and redesign of heatcore speed up the production and with my son fully on board Plus a friend i aim to start getting them moving out, i also have a desk full of prototypes of various shapes and as @PPN mentioned i did send some out so look forward to get back to vape tinkering.

    Stem and wong are Bog oak and the coco log is the last to have the mk1 heatcore , log at the bottom has the new heatcore with fixing at the bottom and has been a testing unit for the last few weeks.

    Its good to be back..
