I guess it does have a decidedly s&m vibe especially my love and pain from it!
No idea! Just a thought!
A kindred spirit! Yay!
I see no reason it shouldn't work. Do you? You can use any source you want with the dynavap.
I actually think I tried it back in the day, unsuccessfully. Think perhaps it just took forever?
Aren't Butane torches in the 2500-3000+ temp range? Vs ~600?
I think it's a matter of conduction/contact.
Once upon a time I set mine a top my wood stove. Unfortunately, the display started to black out so I had to abandon said experiment. If I had a 2nd Sv3 I'd be tempted to re-try...for science.
I tried heating with a hot plate a while back. It worked, kinda.
Ha! Now I remember! That was it.... the temp went black! Scared the shit outta me!
Well, following my post on the SV4 thread and your reply @biohacker I have decided to pull the trigger on an Sv3!
Was set on the double because it seemed more powerful but might go for the single after reading @Hogni 's post on the Sv4 thread...
Even though I have seen both models for about the same price and the dual comes with 2 gifts (and maybe less tax since it comes from within the EU).
Thing is, even though I find the dual a little overcomplicated, it seems to come with two 14mm/18mm adapters and a better warranty, instead of the 30-day the other shop offers...
It's been a long time since I posted here, i have some fun with my SV3 and my new Blazer Big Buddy Turbo Torch, faster heat-up time and the temp is more stable, i just need to stop to heat 20°C before to reach the choosen temp. I've tried the "Slow motion" on my phone (Leeco Max), i don't like the result but still this thread need more Milked video shot:

Can someone please tell me, or link me, how I can open up the sv3?
I have to replace the wires from the thermostat to the heat block
(They do not make proper contact at all right now)
You just remove the silicone ring at the top near the block and that's all that is holding the thermocouple in place. The other thing is you need to make sure that the two wires from the thermocouple don't touch. The one wire on the one side of the thermocouple should be completely covered by the plastic insulator (including the connector) as it's imperative that the lead is 100% insulated as otherwise it will short with the other lead likely through the aluminum SV3 body (which would mess up your readings of course) ... I have a feeling your issue might be more in the area of the installation of the thermocouple and its insulation more so than the wires themselves. If after removing the thermocouple from the SV3, you should be able to also ensure the crimped on connectors are making solid contact with the wires when the wires are inserted, if not, maybe squish them down a little tighter.
For removing it, you'll probably find the silicone at this point has "bonded" to the aluminum, so you'll have to cut/scrape it off and replace it with the supplied extras. Be careful doing this as you don't want to scratch up the SV3 stem. I use a stiff plastic spatula to scrape off the stuck on silicone pieces after removing the bulk, then I boil in hot water and scrub some more. You can use some magic eraser to get the last of it, but then make sure to rinse well, then I usually boil it for about 15 minutes as a final step.
After boiling, remove, let cool a little, shake dry as well as you can, then place in oven @ 275F for 1/2 an hour or so to dry it out completely. Replace silicone, re-seat thermocouple and re-install in stand and it'll be like your SV3 is brand new again
Hope that helps!
Thanks for all your info!
I read it a bit to lately so that’s what I am at right now:
- removed sv3 from stand
- removed thermostat (=TS)
- desoldered TS and added new wires
- I have to screw the TS module together again, will do this tomorrow
I used 2mm isolated wires. Is it safe to solder the thermostat-diode-thingy straight to the wires? Read your post but maybe did not got it, that’s why I am asking..
I would isolate each wire „path“ so that they won’t touch, is that ok?
Where shall I place the TS - at the top but not touching the unit sounds vivid to me..?
My thermostat doesn’t turn on right now.
On the backside of the TS pcb is a Silver, round disk attached: Ishtar the battery? Where does the battery belong?
Between the silver thing and the metal stand or where?
Hey all my Sv3 peoples,
Has it occurred to any of you that we might be owners of a soon to be collectable i.e. very rare and expensive vaporizer?
With the Dually replacing the now discontinued Sv3, we might be sitting on a gold mine!
Just a thought as I welcome the weekend with my first bowl of the day. Yea!
All remaining SV3's are located in Europe!
The inventor sold ALL hi stock to a supplier over there.
I was thinking about a way to mod my SV3 to accept a flat coil.
Thinking of cutting 3 plates of aluminum with the two narrow sides a push fit, securing the coil against the heat exchangers side.
I have some aluminum solder that i want to try, it melts at around 800F so it should be perfect!
Not sure when i will try this out as i have no workshop at the moment...
Might order one and have them ship it back this way, you know, back up
You know bundling on shipping is a way to save money.
Okay guys, I have just bought the remaining 11 SV3's from Lacentrale. I do 'em at £300 each hit me up! (Shipping is extra.)
Modnote: Alexis is now offering 70% off and free shipping with the code STU.
Check out my mod in the link in my signature
I know! Great work but i like to tinker myself and i have never tried soldering aluminum, so something new!
Don't worry, whatever i come up with will not be for sale.
I have an SV4 bare bones on the way and since i bought a flat coil, I thought why not do some testing.
Quite interested to see what thinner aluminum stock does to heating times, heat retention and time to recover from a hit.
Home from a lovely few days away celebrating the birth of my fourth grandchild. Wow, almost as amazing as the birth of your own children....of course my trusty Vapcaps were my most capable companions whilst traveling, but now back home, post work this AM, and time to nail my skull to the couch. Hence, I am preparing my SV3 for a session. The damn thing is a lead-pipe cinch when it's time to get serious
