@Diggy Smalls - You can see that I cut the tips off from the shop slippers. I didn't want them to be completely ridiculous. I only wear them in the shop so it doesn't matter too much how they look. Keeping my feet happy is the most important thing. I have signed a few of my turnings in the past. The wood beauty is what makes them art. It varies a bit from piece to piece which makes them all unique. The heater cartridge just contains the heater coil and tapered connection for the roasting tubes. The 12v base unit has voltage control only. A mod box can have wattage and/or temperature control. They do operate very similar, but there are some differences. I like using it with the base and also the mod box. @ZC - Glad to hear it arrived safely and you are enjoying it. I also had to change the way I hold the unit as compared to a traditional log vape unit. The Insta Heat unit sets with the bottom on the knuckle of my right index finger and held like a pipe with the top / roasting tube pointing at my mouth. My index finger runs up the side with the button, my thumb rests on the side of the base unit, and my other fingers close around the power plug/cord. I hold the whole unit upside down when connecting to the tube or removing the tube for stirring. It helps to keep particles from falling onto the debris screen. Hope you are able to enjoy it on a mod box sometime. It is quite powerful for a portable. Happy you like the new travel size stir tool. I really like them for keeping the screens clean between uses. Here is how it looks.
