Awesome MC79. I can't remember what type of wood it was for sure, but i am almost positive i was the only one who got it, and i believe it is the only Pandora Tom made without a logo on it. It was a special request, and although he said he couldn't do it at first, he surprised me with that beautiful no logo unit. You could check my posts in the Pandora thread and i likely said what it was there.... maybe Maple?
Couldn't find it in the Pandora thread. Could it be silver maple? Looks similar to my HI.Awesome MC79.

Edit. I don't believe it is Satinwood
Thank you sir!Silver Maple sounds right. Let me check old emails for you too...
Edit. Found it in a 2010 email. @Madcap79
"Just turned a nice piece of figured maple yesterday. I've got to get it bored, but it will make a nice looking Pandora for you."
Direct quote from my email. I also found the email where i was told no logo was not an option. But he hooked it up anyway.
Love the pictures.Alright. Here's the second round. I assembled it but did not close out the bottom. It seems to be running a little cool. I get little clouds when running with the stock wall wort. I'm not sure if having the bottom closed out would make a difference? I seems like it introduces more air through the holes where the wires go through. So I have been hitting it flat on a piece of the leather to try to minimize extra airflow. I must admit, I feel pretty damn good right now. So, obviously its working to a degree. My myrtle unit put out larger clouds and seemed to darken the herb more. Could be wood species as well? Hope this isn't overkill with the pictures. Anyway....
Here are the pieces to assemble the heat exchanger. Basically washers around a tube.
Here is my stack up. I went with one extra 'dark fin' washer and one less regular washer.
You then tap the flare with a hammer to flatten it out and this created tension on the cross bar to hold the washers in place.
You then solder extension wires on to the resistor. Go Blues!
You then fold the longer wire back over the resitor and slide it into the tube. Bend the wires thusly.
Then slide on the outer sleeve. Photos might be a little blurry. Still working on my photograph game.
Slide that into the body. Install the snap ring.
Wrap the wires in a U shape around the screws and tighten. Then wrap them around the prongs for the power jack.
Solder those bad boys.
And there you have it. Not too bad of a project. Still wondering about the cooler temp though. I'm trying it with my vvps shortly.
I was thinking that as well but forgot to mention it in my write up. PD got me! Haha. You have no idea how happy it made me to get this little treasure. I've come to realize that I'm a log head and I'm not ashamed.Love the pictures.
I am 95% sure i know you're issue. All PD's I ever had need a break in period where it is heated for at least a month to fully dry, then your clouds will be bigger. i can almost guarantee this is your issue.
Also... little jealous i sold this little project away. so glad to see she made a nice home.
Is the stock 12v?So, after a good heal soaking over night in the stock wall wort, I loaded a stem that I had put a great screen into. I took a pull from my new PD and boom.....just like old times. I guess it did need a little heat saturation! Thanks again @IAmKrazy2 !
I'll have to post up a movie soon.
