So all my recent research into Log vapes (and the decision to purchase a nano) has me thinking about building my own! My friend is an expert on the lathe (He often has his bowls shown in art galleries), and he always has blocks of beautiful local exotic woods (burls, tiger eyes, hardwoods, etc) which he burns in his 55gallon drum almost monthly! I plan on using this to source my log's exterior design. I however am more of a gadget guy. I'm great when it comes to wiring, and have a lot of knowledge gained from 3D printing about heating elements and heat dispersion. What I suck at, is PCB's. I don't know anyone locally, nor have I EVER had any luck with PCB's (Just too complicated, and nobody to teach me!). I'm looking for a cheap and simple way to provide a variable power to a ceramic heating element (12vDC or 120VAC TBD). I'd prefer something like I've seen for the Nano which the controller is built into the power cord. But I can always design that part myself (3D print a case and control knob). What I'm really asking is the best/simple way to regulate current going to a heating element. I'm looking for something reliable because I want to ensure I can leave it running 24/7 I've got a few friends who can't quite afford to enter the vapeing market, and building them a cheap reliable log vape just might convince them to break their combusting habits! Thanks all!
