I find the v5 to clean very easy gets 98 % clean using heating methodI left a PM here a month ago for @divinetribe didn’t hear back from Matt, so I wrote to DT customer service, and did receive a reply to my questions from someone else.
I have a V4 with 14mm glass vortex WPA, but was told, the older V4 “all glass vortex tops” DON’T FIT the new V5 base, though the listing for the new tools say:
NOTE : Oil your orings with a veg oil of your choice, before using this product If you would like to try multiple sizes please choose any qty that applies but in checkout notes mention size you want for each This All Glass Vortex top will fit v4 – v4.5 – & v5 Your [...]ineedhemp.com
“This All Glass Vortex top will fit v4 – v4.5 – & v5”Regardless, I’ll buy the new base and new glass tops.
Has anyone tried or considered using the:
“Polished SIC Silicon Carbide Crucible Insert and Heater for the v5 and Core 2.0 eRig”
Ω Divine Crossing Version 5 POLISHED SIC Crucible Cup and HEATER Ω Ω Silicon Carbide Ωineedhemp.com
The height of the SIC bucket INSERT is TALLER then the V5 bucket, but CS told me this would NOT interfere with the TUBES in the “all glass vortex tops”. I ASSUME, the top part of the SIC bucket may not get heated evenly as it sticks out of the top of the V5 bucket, and will obviously reduce the bowl volume, but PERHAPS be easier to clean then the bare V5 bucket? It’s $45, but might be worth it?
