From an email with John asking about when my order was shipping (I ordered on 3/23).
It sure would be nice to hear about this from vestratto and maybe keep us informed better. Haven't heard anything about the drop didnt happen last week. And now had to hear from a 3rd source about the drop that didn't happen yesterday or maybe not today?

At this point I check all my mailboxes everyday haha. Waiting for the e-mail to order like it's some RNG loot.

If anyone is interested I just ordered enough O-Rings to do 12 full services on my Anvil. Got them from theoringstore.com This would cost $116 with shipping normally. All are Viton except the heat guard one on the outside, that one is Buna Nitrile as listed on Vestratto site. Why 12 sets? well there is a 12pc minimum on the Heatguard oring. Maybe split the tab with a fellow Anviller. :cool:

Thanks for sharing this. $10 shipping is still some bullshit but I like how you did nearly all the legwork/math for us so I updated your post with links while putting my cart together :tup:

Changing topics, is it true that the condenser needn't be seated all the way? If I was to make one complaint of my first days in Anville it's that the "wide open" setting really isn't and it's making it more restricted than I'd like with my j-hook and bubbler. I have my middle bit screwed in all the way but I have also been snugging the condenser down rather than just letting the bowl push it mostly in. I will promptly stop doing that if it's unnecessary and reducing the airflow.

When we say "wide open" we don't mean letting air in to dilute the vapor do we? Does all the air that's flowing pass through the bowl or are we diluting the vapor with more open airflow?

Especially since the Post on Sunday mentioned Thursday. For the life of me I cannot figure out why I haven't gotten a waitlist email yet, having signed up on January 11th.

Appreciate the links @bossman! My laziness thanks you especially.

On the condenser/airflow side of things, here's what I understand the situation to be:
condenser2.png

This is an older Founder's edition diagram I found on IG, but it's effectively the same thing. I drew in blue the airpath as it enters the device. The section circled in red shows where the top of the condenser meets the chamber when it's screwed in to the oven. If the condenser is pushed all the way down or to the right in the pic, you can see how the top of the condenser section will choke off the airflow in blue as it comes into contact with the copper core oven, which is the section in orange. You can pull the entire oven assembly up to further reduce airflow at this point if you'd like, but to open it up completely, it needs to have some separation from the copper core oven similar to the section circled in red. I've had 3 Anvil bowls already so take this with a grain of salt, but this is generally how I've been assembling and have been pretty satisfied with the results.

All outside air passes between the heated oven and herb chamber then down through the load and out the condenser and mouth piece.

Edit: Didn't see you post. Guess two diagrams are better than one. :)

My understanding is he is waiting on new stock - most likely Monday, but earlier is possible. And based on shipping issues in general, maybe later.

As I‘ve understood it, stock comes in on Monday, which is why the first few rounds of waitlist Emails went out on Monday.

In the last Sunday Post John said he wants to prepare everything, so that he can send them out as soon as the orders are coming in and that‘s why Emails are now send out on Thursday.

Well... its past noon. No email here and haven't heard of anyone else receiving one. Guess not today. My hopes for this vape are lessening each day.

Buy he doesn't even send out emails on Thursday. He just says he is.

The Anvil VAS Blues - Part 2

No news is good news, that’s what they say.
Been about three weeks now, since the drops been under way.

VAS been off the scale here, wish it would go away.
Would be nice to hear soon, if tomorrow be the day.

Watching Wiff’s videos, and all those milky clouds.
Can’t believe he’s working, with all those grins and smiles.

Vestratto is smooth sailing, John’s captain of the ship.
Destination be full extraction, with one big healthy rip.

Anvil factory is purring, not much time to relax.
Demand just keeps growing, all power to the max.

No worry bout the naysayers, they’ve all been proven wrong.
Always moving forward, just humming his favourite song.

The days been getting longer, the Sun is really bright.
Anvil’s stuck in my head, dreams all through the night.

Feeling really left out here, seems like way too long.
Signed up nine times now, something must be wrong. :lol:

Yeah, I’m done with messing with this.
time to contact vestratto and send it in.
I have inserted that condenser as lightly as human possible, or any other way. Doesn’t matter. As soon as the chamber is screwed on, clogged.

and if it’s that easy to shut off airflow with condenser than this product is not for me lol. I mean something has be be defect on mine or else design can’t be right.

I can get a hit if I hit it natively,sucking like a banshee, but trying to milk any sort of water piece is impossible.

You guys waiting.. it’s worse actually having one in your hands you can’t even get working! lol
going to take the vape walk of shame on this one… couldn’t get it going right

I was hoping to get this one figured out by Monday cuz I’m back in the hospital for more treatment, oh well I can wait a bit longer

I've been wondering about mine as well, seems too easy to mess up, especially with zero instructions. The videos don't touch on any of this, giving it a few days to draw an impression but I have been struggling with the whole airflow section and the fact it pulls apart easily too

Is your chamber filling with herb after you screw on the oven?

Also it's not that easy to adjust to airflow if I'm being honest, but it's a set it and forget thing. One tip would also be to twist the anvil on magnet to remove cap rather than twisting cap off with your finger.

bro I’ve done everything, people be like “is the condenser clogged“ lol
im Talking empty here, no airflow
I’ve watched the videos 20 times over, inspected every piece, sent video to whiff

check the airflow at every step of assembly. airflow is going obvs when just the oven is stuck on, then drop the condenser in, still have airflow… lightly screw the chamber, clogged. So seems like it’s the chamber to me. The ONLY time I ever get any sort of airflow is if I I unscrew the chamber slightly

im no vape rookie and I’m pretty good at figuring things out…but this one got me

Got mine ordered today, wish the halfbowl could have been ordered as the default but besides that the ordering process was smooth.
Well, this is the first I've heard of someone getting an email! Awsome and congrats! Very good to hear!
