I have been enjoying a new hobby that is helping me to quit smoking. There is a huge demand now for Mods in the Vape/eCig community. They use the same batteries and very similar hosts. Many of you have the equipment and already the correct specs to make these mods and I think that you could make a lot of money while helping people all over the world.

Here is a sample link to the types of mods people are after. They are way over priced. If someone from here was able to get into this they could not only charge more than you do now, but also drive the market down so people like me can afford these mods LOL...

This is an interesting point. Its true that vape batteries are almost the same as lasers I'm sure there probably are members on this community that have utilized their long love for lasers and turn their lasers into vapes perhaps.

Welcome to vaping! I haven't touched a cigarette in over four years thanks to ecigs. When I got into lasers, I already had the batts ;)

I had similar thoughts before. Between the machinists and electrical engineers (officially or not) around LPF, theirs no mod we couldn't recreate (or create).

Yep I have not smoked in more than 3 years now. I just want to make full diode module attachments with 510 threading on them so people can swap a laser on their mods. I have seriously thought about this.:)

Here are my current mods.

Nice collection! That would be really cool... You could even use the voltage selector to very the laser output ;) I would Buy one and a diode/module in each wavelength to go with it! Now what tank should I get? Make a quick release so I can take a huge hit, pop in module, and lase the cloud!

P.S. What is your favorite juices? One day I'll have as many mods as you...

the first thing I thought about when vapeing came out was to put a 445nm diode in there to heat the juice, and yes a combo pointer vaper crossed my mind, I still smoke the rett's and need to make the switch...;

And sheeeeeet that is a nice collection DTR

I've thought of doing this along with making stuff for people here on LPF; but alas I am still making tooling for my shop at home (I.e.- finishing my taper attachment for the lathe, tailstock for the rotary table and spin index, and a custom radius cutter for the lathe). Working all this overtime keeps me from having a lot of free time. As I am writting this, I am currently at work running the CNC lathe. This is also why I havn't been on here in a while except to PM Jeff when I don't have time to call him.
Not that I couldn't make stuff now, it's just that after being a machinist for 17 1/2 years I don't want to be limited on what I can make. Shoot me a PM if you have something in mind. Of course Jeff aka Flaminpyro could probably do something for you as well, but from what he tells me, he's butthole deep in work. That may be because he's too busy playing with pyro.:D
He can also tell you about the quality of work I do as I've done a couple of things for him.

I'd like to convert that vape in the far right side of the photo into a laser pointer, that kind of display is exactly what I've wanted in a host.
