* I meant 5 & 7. Sorry.
Back to the drawing board on the insulated carb cap handle. The wood with pressed in set screw failed the extended temp test. Thanks FC for suggesting we preform that test. We are going to try an extended shovelhead bowl handle. We have something really cool happening with the removable avb bucket with brush / toolshed addon.
I'm looking into buying a VROD setup, I was thinking of just going with the Vrod build a bundle, with a 14mm male post, Vrod carb cap and the enail handle. I was wondering if it's best to just go with the Newvape enail controller and 20mm coil? Or should I try and source one from elsewhere? Perhaps DHGate? I'm based in the UK.
Also wondering if I should add on a glass bowl? Is there anything else I should be ordering at the same time? Does the loading tool come in useful?
Don't want to get the kit and end up wishing I'd ordered extra parts so would appreciate the confirmation.
Carb Cap Handle!!! Itching for some feedback. Im really stoked about these!

I love the handle, and it's awesome you can add the dab tools on top! I especially like it with the shorter dab tools so it's not too long. I'll definitely get one when they're in the shop
Would removing a bit of the wood length near the screw and leaving the bare steel rod exposed for a few mm beyond the screw threads reduce the discoloration? It might also solve the fit issues on the older style carb cap. I actually don't mind the discoloration, it feels more broken-in that way, similar to how the titanium changes color over time.
Is there any fire risk if you max out temps for too long? For example if you set the vape to 1000f (or whatever the actual coil max is) and leave the cap on for an extended period, will it ever burn or smoke? Not that anyone would be doing this intentionally, just trying to think through edge cases.
I got the glass bowl in addition to the standard and am really happy I did. It's nice having a bowl to easily switch between flower and dabs - I do dabs only on the glass one and use the titanium for flower/twax. I feel like the glass bowl has a bit of a smoother taste too, but I didn't really do a controlled comparison between the two, so ymmv.
The loader is very nice and well sized, but at the end of the day it's a scoop so it won't change your life if you already have something similar.
This was my first thought.
My logic is, my carb cap "handle" really only gets hot if I leave it on for an extended amount of time, and that's when I forget to take it off after taking a rip.
That's usually a pretty long time, so I'd be planning for worst case scenario. Let's say it was 725 for 24 hours, would anything happen?
During normal use I don't find shaft you hold gets too hot from a single dab, but multiple I could see it.
Edwyn left the wooden handle on the carb cap on the head set for 710 degrees farhenheit for 3 hours and we all saw what that did to the handle. Not NewVape nor anyone else can protect stupid.
I recently moved to a controller with a built in auto-shutoff... highly recommend. I've got mine set up to turn off after 30 minutes; and my consumption has already plummeted from that one simple feature.
It could be as simple as a silicone sleeve between the wood and metal, like on the loading tool. A textured silicone would be even better. The burned marks are just not a good sign after 3 hours. I use a timer as well MOST of the time, and it's on a marble counter with nothing around. I still wouldn't use this until this was remedied in the off chance it somehow stayed on for an extended period, and the carbcap was left on for instance.
And not everyone uses a timer, some people seem to leave their devices on nearly constantly in safe spots. I don't see anything wrong with that and it could even be safer than a 30 min burst in a not-so-safe spot depending on the variables.
Silicone sleeve could also allow these to be retrofit on any tool because the silicone would act as a grip around the existing tool.
Silicone is one of the last things I would want getting hot near my vapor
Thanks for the input on the wood handle.
The auber control does have a 1 hr timer built in.
I was using the flowerpot last night but I saw that it was smoking and making a weird smell so I turned it off. I let it cool and opened it up to find that there was resin buildup on one of the pieces inside. I was wondering if this was a common issue and how it can be solved. I am curious to know if it could be due to the terp balls. https://imgur.com/a/Cak1DPX
Hey guys I was wondering if the universal carb cap was any good for the VROD? Cans it be used with the SiC dish on top? Or should I try and get the VROD carb cap. My girlfriend was trying to get some birthday presents for me and accidentally ordered that one instead of the VROD carb cap.
I have never seen any amount of buildup in that part. I've done a couple grams of concentrates and maybe a half oz of flower in the past month and don't see a drop there.
Are you taking giant dabs or something?
I mainly use it for flower but occasionally I take small dabs. Never anything ridiculous and I swab it up right after. Whenever I do take dabs I make the balls spin very fast but I don't know how that much reclaim would be able to find its way into the head like that. I think it is also strange how the diffuser does not have any residue on it, however it is a little discolored so maybe it just burned off? I am almost certain everything was tight because I had to use a pair of pliers to get the nut loose and the two halves were tight too.
This is timely bc I'm experiencing same issue. I mainly use vrod for flowers with occasional small dabs and I qtip right after. Last night after I dabbed and tipped I noticed the vrod head was still giving off a small plume of smoke which got heavier if I picked it up and blew through it. This morning I had to use a wrench to unscrew the vrod and the sic dish but, and when I did I discovered similar residue on the same pieces you posted. It also seemed like there was reclaim in the threads so I used a toothbrush with rubbing alcohol to clean them as best as I could. Not sure why that happened.
Huh... Do you use the terp balls too? I doubt it could be anything from the flower because the air is being pulled through the unit. It cleaned fairly easily with iso and a q-tip, just a lot of scrubbing.
I missed the terp ball part. I recently started using some and will take apart the head tonight and check that spot. I did look one time after getting them though and didn't see anything.
I do use the terp pearls, purchased from new vape. Mine did not scrub out. I left it in iso for a couple hours and a couple bits chipped off but that was it. My confusion is that I don't do dabs that often and when I do they are pretty small. So really not sure ♂️
Since you are a MEDICAL consumer of CANNABIS let me ask you the temperature that is best for ROSIN?
@invertedisdead is this the greatest medical device on this PALE BLUE DOT we live on?
It's a fantastic vape but I'm just not hitting dry herb right now. It's all about rosin for me.
I've been thinking about it. One thing is when I do dabs I will usually leave the carb cap on after first hit, clear that and then finish. Do you think that's causing reclaim on the inside like that? I really like the vrod for flower and while it's convenient to be able to twax I'm starting to think a dedicated setup for dabs isn't a bad thing and leave the FP for flower where it truly excels.
So I can't get my VROD head apart to see if I have residue there, but just thinking about it I've never seen smoking while sitting on the post @ 725 and there is 0 smell coming from it.
I honestly don't see how it can even get in there. Are you taking GIANT dabs and leaving the carb cap on? Even then it doesn't make sense to me as that chamber is outside of the main airflow hole. Is it leaking off the edge of the carb cap down the outside edges of the SiC dish?
What size wrenches for the VROD head? Bigger than anything I have to work on my stuff.
Pretty small dabs, bb size at the most. Maybe the temps too low, I usually leave mine at 600 +/- 20.
As far as a wrench I used an adjustable one.
