    Fluxer Heaters, induction heaters for Dynavap

    Sorry you are having an issue charging, @Iholland17 . :hmm: The Flite uses the same charger used by the Flux Deluxe, which you also have IIRC. How well does it charge the batteries in the FD? If it fails to charge those, too, then it's likely the fault of the charger. If it charges the cells in...

    Eh, they're hand made, custom designed electronic devices. I make them in small runs, in the US, and they come with pretty solid post-sales support. The pricing reflects the effort involved to make and support them, and is comparable to prices for hand made guitar effects pedals. So far the...

    Hi all, A quick update to say that I am almost done with Flite batch #2. I have 7 heaters left and expect to complete these today. Today is a postal holiday so the heaters I finished this weekend will go out tomorrow. After I finish batch #2 I have a few random Flite orders to complete; if one...

    HI all, The 16m glass inserts arrived today - huzzah! - so I expect to start completing heaters for batch #2 as soon as tonight. It will take me a few days to work through them, but they should begin to leave here shortly. Also, some of you have requested I use alternate shippers, and those...

    Very happy it finally got to you, @Jethro ! And that's a sweeeeet Fluxer line up! Thank for your support! :rockon: I am sorry your Flite is too hot, which is due to my aggressive coil setup for the first 18 units. Your coil is mounted too high, specifically the shorter leg is probably 2-3mm...

    You won't cause any harm to the FD, but you will eventually draw down your battery. The FD has two components that draw power at idle, the green front panel LED (20mA), and the optocoupler (15mA), which is an enclosed LED switch used to activate the battery meter. There's a DIP switch on the PCB...

    Thanks @TommyDee !! :rockon::cheers:😍 Thanks so much for taking the time to put this together! Tommy's technique is verrrrry repeatable, and I say that after testing it verrrrry thoroughly. :ko: BTW, although you can't see this in the video, his "heartbeat" setting for PWM is such that it just...

    Thanks, @Texus . The new 16mm glass shipped today and should be here by this time next week, so the wait shouldn’t be too long.

    The 16mm is comparatively cooler than the 15mm. It is a fine performer in its own right. It's possible. We'll see how the preliminary build tasks go.

    Fluxer Heaters, induction heaters for Dynavap

    Yes, you are correct in your statements. There are now two sizes of coils from which to choose for the Flite: 15mm (hotter) and 16mm (cooler). Based on the initial responses to the Flite, I now believe most people will prefer the cooler 16mm coil. Additionally, each coil can be mounted low...

    Hi everyone, Full week, huh? Here’s some news that should be well received. The response to heaters from the first batch of Flite has been very positive overall, but one common request emerged: can you guys tone this thing down a bit and make it heat less aggressively? We hear you! In...

    I have been out running some errands and just got back to the thread, so I'm jumping directly to this comment. Yes, that is the same way I will drop the coil if one sends it back to me for this adjustment. There is one additional consideration when doing this, which is that the magnet wire (as...

    Thank you to all who were able to grab one! Still two left as I type this, and it seems like light green is a color I won't be reordering. ;)

    So far I have only been able to find red and green in the small 8mm diameter I need.

    No. I don't know what's up, they show as inventory. Let me see why these aren't available OK, the other colors now appear as expected.

    Please use the store - it is intended to make this process orderly. If you desperately wanted a color and it is gone, you can ask if I have more of them. I have black, gun metal, red, blue, and dark green (but not hunter green) in larger quantities. I'm trying to spread the other, more limited...

    No, this is called a screw up. I wanted to edit one of the options and accidentally made stuff live too early when I saved. D'Oh! I reset as quickly as I could, but was prepared to honor any "extra" orders that came through. I don't think any did, though.

    Hi all, Batch #2 goes on sale at 10:00 PST. I will be making 16 heaters in this batch: 3x black, 3x gun metal, and 2x each other color. The default setup for these and future Flite batches will be cooler than the first heaters from the first batch. Default coil setup is "FULL COOL", but I have...
