What are they?
-These products are slim, stylish, hand made, and unique methods to store your Dynavap vaporizer. All are spring loaded and make your Vap pop out like a freakin’ light saber every time you open it.
Is the DynaVap vaporizer included?
-Sorry, no. You can get yours at www.dynavap.com
Isn’t that a lot of money?
-Yes. You really shouldn’t spend this much money on your bad habits. But if you’re reading this you’ll probably get one anyway. Good for you! Live a little! Seriously though, I make each of these by hand. I’m practically giving them away at this price.
What’s your deal?
-I’ve been an artist all my life, specializing in mechanical sculpture for the last 20 years. This practice has led me to make many of my own tools when necessary. I consider these products to be “lifestyle tools”.
Why did you pick that particular lighter, what if it breaks?
-I chose the Aomai lighter because of its size and shape, as well as the fact that it has a replaceable flint striker (these tend to be more reliable) and a fuel window. I’ve had expensive lighters break as often as cheap ones, so I figured replaceable/affordable was the way to go. I’ve been using the same one now for months with zero problems, and I know if it fails I can get another one for under $10.
Do you work with/for Dynavap?
-Nope. I just think they made a truly great device, that ultimately was a little hard to live with on a day to day basis, so I came up with some tools to make it even better.
Is the metal coated?
-Nope. It’ll tarnish. After a few months of fiddling with it, it will develop a really nice patina from the oils from your hands. If you prefer the shiny look, a quick rub down with brass polish does the trick.
Will your product scratch my extra fancy anodized stem?
-No. All new products now ship with a sleeve of oven parchment paper inserted into the storage tube. This is quite effective at protecting custom stem coatings, but inhibits the action of the spring a little bit. If you’re using a standard stainless stem, you can just pull the sleeve out. If you’re reading this after having purchased a piece from me before this change, it’s easy to do yourself. Just cut a rectangle of oven parchment paper to 1-5/16″ x 3-1/2″ for short stem units, 4″ for long stem.
Is each object perfect in every way?
-Er, no. These are each hand made by me (The little brass plates that hold the tubes together are CNC cut) so each one is a little different and will have small imperfections, you know, like precious diamonds.
