    @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.

    I don't have any milk videos to share, but here is a photo of a unit I sold about a month ago. The bottom and roasting tube is black wood. The heater cartridge is maple burl. So many potential wood combinations. I found a low profile switch that fits the slim diameter better and works well. The next batch should have some really interesting combinations / materials.

    For science, of course.

    :o That's beautiful (oh why didn't I get on the list sooner :doh: ).

    The whole thing must be tiny, with the blackwood base taking the place of the box mod...

    Sounds like a plan. I will need to get some glassware cleaned up first.

    The iHeat has predictably become my daily driver. It's beautiful, comfortable, fast, powerful, and effective, with no need to hassle with batteries.

    The no-glass design means I don't need to worry about breaking it.

    It does have a hotspot if I push it too far, but interestingly it's not a traditional spot, it's actually curved in the shape of the heater. So typically after a few hot hits I'll do a little stir. It also doesn't seem to be as hot of a hotspot as other similar heaters.

    @ZC @lemmeadem did you try the heater cartridge with a mod?

    Differences ?

    My mod is an OKR mod, so it's pretty much the same experience as the plug-in unit except it has a voltage display. I prefer to just use the base unit because I mostly vape at my desk and don't like bothering with batteries.

    The one pictured is mine and I have used it both the the "base" and with a box mod. I have had a similar experience with a curved hot spot if you push it too far. The function on the box mod with voltage control is very similar to the iHeat base. It does function a little different if your mod has temperature control and you are in that mode. TC eliminates the manual aspect and you can hold down on the button as long as you want without worrying about scorching the load. Both are good experiences, just different.
