Might try asking on the EntExchange on Reddit, someone may have one laying around. As is, the Hercules has been discontinued and W9 Tech is no more.

I believe it's a 601 it's a regular persei
Do you have the bottom piece part of the herc?

Did you gave a look on PlanetVape I believe they had still some W9 products for sale, maybe not a full kit but enough spares parts to build a brand new Hercule with @slozukimc help (that's nice btw).
And you can try to email Randy at PuffItUp it may have still one laying around.... who know?

Do you know how to proceed if a company would want to re-make the Hercules? Do you have to pay for patent or not since it's not for sale anymore? Although if a company will do that I bet it will be better to re-design it for a smaller form factor (and maybe smaller loads), to get it to work without that initial half gram load which may be intimidating for beginners with low amount of resin. I think it's missing... a good working tank alternative system to the Ccell (not bashing the Ccell but I want something able to work with straigth resin!)
Have a fun Hercule build, you'll love it (mine was slightly pushed on the side for now but only cause new devices testing and low wax reserve keep me away to use it as much as usual)!

The Herc was redesigned for the smaller Triton form factor but it was never released.

The Triton wasn't a Hercule improved version but is called by G himself "the pinnacle of coil technology"... Although the Hercule Ascendent might be considered like the unreleased version of the "new hercule" (but it looks like a cart from the pic I seen...).

I think you have things backwards. This was a Hercules heating rod for the Triton. There is no way that will work with a Herc.
I don’t recall saying anything about using those parts in a Hercules. Maybe re-read the string of quoted messages.

@PPN was saying it would be cool if the Hercules was redesigned in a smaller form factor, I’m showing him that it was. Just never released.

Ok. Sounded like it by saying “for Herc”. Gotcha.

I ahould have at least one 601 bottom piece. Is that all you need to fix one you already have?

It's the piece that the bolt screws on. It's got 5- 6 metal pieces where you screw the bolt on top (looks like a flower when opened/broken). Those pieces broke off. I'm Also also looking for the plastic casing please let me know

I will send the pic today or tomorrow when i find the box that I put away the herc in

Is yours a 74x? If I am getting your description right yours sounds like an SR-71. I was thinking only the 71 had the friction contacts and newer models had the spring and pin.
