The plastic bodies of current Ohm Readers are so flimsy and move around when building and wicking. I really wish I’d gotten one when I’d had the chance. I was wondering if anybody knew if someone out there in vapeland was making anything similar to these ORTDS.
I don’t know where you could find one sadly. I gave up using them as they do suck. I use a big ol regulated mod now. Does the same thing for me at least. I actually use my Hadron by steam crave for this purpose. Will hold up to a 35mm atty. It’s sturdy, and high enough to be comfortable for how I am sitting when I am building.
Sorry about the Master/Mister thing. (embarrassing, since I had a second tab open to copy the link you posted - I edited it in my original post).
I didn’t realize you could get the OG Coil Master 521 Tab. Mine died ages ago. I’ve got the Mini, which is even more inaccurate and lightweight than the original. I liked the idea of the ORTDS because it had a low base like the OG Coil Master, but it also had some weight to it like the mods you and @Deb50 are suggesting.
Any idea how to add some weight to the OG Coil Master, if I go that route, to keep it planted to my work area?
Hmm, maybe a small flat weight you can set it on and either some rubber bands or even twisty tie things. Even a hockey puck would work. I used one of those to set a simple round build stand on and worked great. Course I super glued it to the puck and you can’t really do that here as you need to be able to get to the battery door. Unless it has a usb for charging and you dedicate a battery to it?
I vote for a flat weight of some sort and rubber bands. That could work, maybe? lol I rig crap all the time but it’s not always attractive
Do you remember if the base for the OG 521 Tab was a single piece/magnetic door, or if it’s like the 521 Tab Mini (which is like a remote where you have to depress something to get at the battery)?
If it’s a single piece than gluing a weight to the base (like a hockey puck) would be one solution. If not, I was wondering if neodymium magnets would mess up things if attached to the exterior. They’re heavy (and cheap). I was thinking, once again, of the features of the ORTDS and how the front deck was magnetized to hold tools and screws.
I was just thinking of the side facing away from me for the magnets.
That site is charging almost $7 for an adult signature on top of the shipping cost. (and still it’s the least expensive of the few places that still have it - most places have the Mini Tab) Nobody seems to have the Tab Plus, which seems to address the whole weight issue.
I take it that nobody has ever heard of anyone making Ohm Readers like that guy that made the ORTDS? They weren’t as attractive as the mod you had done @MisterSinner (did I get it right this time? - btw, LOVE that mod!), but they could be made with gradients, glitter, etc.
