    I either use a case like the one that @OF posted (just another brand) if it needs to be a bit more sturdy, but most of the time, this is my setup to carry the Vapman around:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It is a "Camel Active Salamanca Series" leather case, which is available in black or brown leather and it fits all that you can see inside. Dimensions are: 3cm x 7,4cm x 11,3cm (1.2" x 2.8" x 4.3").

    And there is still a bit of room left for the one or other small knickknack (like a Vapcap for variety or something else).

    I keep my disassembled Vapman inside of the pouch while being in the case. That is not really necessary, it's just because I treat my Vapman with respect and the tender love that it deserves.

    Better looking by a mile. Or what 1.6 kilometers?

    I was concerned about the protection part, so I changed from the first (soft) camera case to that (hard shell) one. Not as comfortable in a pocket, but the rounded corners help there. Very tough sure to survive any reasonable bump or fall?

    I like it, and I bet it works just dandy......wherever it is.

    Thanks.

    I would bet that those leather cases let your Vapman survive any fall. Not sure about a car going over it or heavy bending, but it is more than enough protection for my everyday life or even a day trip outdoors.

    Another thing that I forgot to add: This case also fits the Arizer Go perfectly (including either an additional cell or an additional mouthpiece).

    I have a black case and the above brown one. The black carries my ArGo (+ a backup cell) and the brown one carries the above items + a Vapcap. I am set for vaping in every situation like this, no matter what the day might bring. :)

    I received the blue station yesterday and tested it, in the name of science, three times to see if it worked.

    First impressions: with the lighter I got good and fairly consistent results that made me very happy, but the station showed me the true potential of the Vapman in terms of taste, consistency and effects. The taste of the first hit blew me away and the very good taste remained during the whole session. The Vaponic is for me the flavor champion, but now I used the Station a couple of times I don't know if the Vaponic is still the undisputed number one...

    What I love about the Station, aside from the consistent results, is how user-friendly it is: plug the unit in, flip the toggle switch and wait for the yellow light, place the Vapman in the unit, wait for the green light and....enjoy!

    The Station seems to be a well-thought-out, high-quality product that gives the user a consistent connaiseur experience. I wanted one desktop vape in my arsenal and the station is the one :tup:

    Can you see the tooth brushes? They work great!

    Beautiful yew tree.

    I will post a video showing the saw mill in action in the next few weeks.

    Kind regards to the vapman community!

    Freakin' BRILLIANT!
    That's awesome man :clap:, I love a good jig.
    And that Yew is indeed beautiful, I'd love to get a Yew VM sometime.
    Imagine a '2 tone' Yew body with some lazer etched tattoos! :drool:

    I don't know if that Apple bandsaw is the best choice though.
    Does it allow the use of any other wood but Apple? :uhoh:

    I look forward to seeing what comes next René, that's gonna become some damn cool furniture I bet :cool:

    EDIT:
    NOW I see the tooth-brushes, brilliant!

    Neat and simple, what you might expect given the Craftsman making it.

    Then again, it would have been even more fun if it had a huge round blade being driven by a windmill on wooden tower above it......like the ones in the Western movies, only better?

    Yeah, that's irritating :cuss:, they were visible, but I assume that imgur have now decided that they must now protect the world from chainsaws :bang: :shit:
    I mean W...T....F :mental:

    Unless.... Maybe René used a different image posting service and they have decided to follow Imgurs example...?????

    Maybe the canna' community needs it's own image/vid' hosting service.

    Hello Vapman Family,

    About a year ago I bought my first vapman (Classic Pear). In the line up of all my (butane) vapes it has a very special place, it's a vaporizer on its own. Not just because of the use of it, but also the looks and how it is made. How can someone invent something like that?! Of all my beloved vapes, Vapman is the only vape I hold in my hand just to stare at (yes, mentioned before and again) and feeling proud Vapman found me!
    In the beginning I had some difficulties with mastering it, but searching through the 'Vapman Bible' (aka the Vapman thread) and reading big parts of it (and over and over), it helped me a lot to get friends with this tiny holy grail!
    But as time flies I met new vapes and the attention to the Vapman got less, until all of a sudden Vapman jumps out of its egg, unannounced every time again...(Vapman will find you!)
    Two weeks ago I purchased the Vapman Station + Classic Walnut from Verdampftnochmal. It gives a smooth flavorful session (on level 2-2 1/2). It's different from the torch ritual, but like it a lot! It feels like a second honeymoon. And... I couldn't resist the Limited Yew Version. Bought it. Ah, nice. Ah, niche. "For station use only". But here comes my little problem. I can't get the same results with the yew on station in stead of my other Vapman vapes on the same level, even on a higher level (3-3 1/2). Compared to my others, the yew has clearly more airflow and its bowl stays green for a longer time. I checked the yew midsection and found out that it has the heat protection ring, my others don't have. Is it because of the hp ring I can't get the same results on the station? Is it the magic that I still haven't mastered? What am I doing wrong? Anyway, every kind of help is welcome!

    To the world: Hoping that more and more international retailers will have the Vapman & accessories in stock. Hoping that the Vapman Online Shop will be soon operating again!

    So, don't give up, Rene!
    Keep on goin' the Vapman culture!
    Whatever that is... I mean...
    Vapman Forever!

    P. S. I would like to have a T-shirt with Vapman logo!

    It appears to be an issue with tinypic which seems to be down at the moment.

    I have the same experience with my yew and a newer classic walnut. . . I hadn't thought about the heat protection ring being the possible cause. . . I'll have to check it out later today and switch out middle sections to see if anything changes.

    That's interesing. As I wrote here before, I sent the Station back cause it seemd not to be able to bring enough temperature to vape hash in that way, I was use to do it with a lighter. The used Vapman was a newer one with the protection ring.

    I have also no solution to this problem, but at least a few more questions. ;)

    Could it be possible, that the others need a deeper cleaning of the middle section incl. the filter and mouthpiece? Are maybe one or more airholes in the middle section or from the air nozzles (intake) blocked (f.i. from the condensate)?:hmm:

    Sometimes it happens to me that I forgotten the monthly cleaning. If I change then to another rather rarely used vapman, the airflow is much better.


    Is the yew a classic or basic model? Or are all Vapmans the same model?
    Stays it longer green with the same strain or are you using different varieties?

    I realized, that it can make a huge different with the strains and also the state of the curing process.

    The ring has such a low mass, it's hard to imagine that it has an influence on the heating process at all. :shrug:
    Wondering what @vapman says to this issue.

    Thank you @Gourmet for your suggestions! :tup:
    To answer your questions: I used the station only with my classic models, the pear, the walnut and the yew and I vaped the same strain. I did a deeper cleaning with the classic pear, my walnut is just one week older than the yew one so I don't think it needs already a deeper cleaning of the middle section. The yew limited version still have more airflow.
    This morning (after my nightshift) I switched the yew middle section with the walnut one on my yew vapman and vice versa (yew middle section on the walnut). Same issue on the station! So, is it the yew? :hmm: (Is it voodoo? Is it yewdoo?)...
    Then I have a 'solution' in this case: The yew vapman is not anymore "for station use only", but "for torch use only"! ;)

    Obviousely!
    (nice word-creation, btw:tup:)

    That leads me to the question, if other highly dense woods like f.i. the ebony have the same behavior. I should test it once.

    Yewdoo is probably the answer!:)

    Seriously, I don't know what is happening and why one vapman is heating up faster than the orther one.

    Do you feel, that there is a difference on how how the pan fits on to the hot counter part of the station?

    I know, that the yew models have a stronger air flow, this is only because the wood of the yew is denser and has a smoother surface, allowing a higher air speed through the three air intakes.

    The three air intakes on the mid section can easily be manipulated by blocking with toothpicks or the opposite, by drilling out the holes with a larger drill. The air restriction is a very personal thing, we all have different lung capacities and preferences.

    It is also important, not to fully tighten the two screws of the filter, the screws should be at least half a turn loose allowing the filter to move and making a better seal.

    This being said, vapman is very tolerant to nuances and works in all sorts of conditions.

    Sorry, I forgot about the t-shirt. Send me an email, I will send you one for free, provided, that it is below 2cm and it goes as a letter. I assume it should work.:)

    ... And it did work! Sent on Tuesday, received on Thursday, I got my Vapman T-shirt and a Vapman sticker! Cool! Many thanx to that mister Vapman! I hope someday someone will see 'vapman' on my shirt and will ask me if I'm also a vapman vaper...? Yes, I am! :wave: :peace:

    About vaping herb with the concentrate pad (cp) there are two options: vaping herb under the cp and vaping herb on the cp. I noticed when vaping herb on the cp, it slightly delivers me a more smooth flavorful session:drool:. But vaping with the cp on top of the green herb gives me a harder hit :ko:.
    I like that kind of varieties with the vapman!
