    Wear safety gear!

    This may not meet approval of the princesses who like pretty everything, but it is very functional.

    First, standard 3 post atties are easy. I'll touch on others at the end, but I can't go into everything. Most you can use a variation of this technique with varying degrees of ugliness.

    What you will need:

    • A dremel with cut off disk [good quality disks really help]
    • A block of wood with a 1/2" hole drilled in it
    • A thin punch, or a nail that fits in the positive pin hole
    • Vice grips or similar
    [​IMG]

    The hole is to hold your attie, allowing the pin to be pressed out.

    [​IMG]

    Gently tap the centre pin out with a hammer [screw removed of course] Make sure your punch or nail won't flange the top being too wide

    [​IMG]


    Put the pin in vice grips and notch a channel, aiming for half way between the holes. So centred when the attie is in place

    [​IMG]

    Put it back in the attie

    [​IMG]

    And you are done in less than 5 minutes. Saving lots of money on atties.

    If the centre pin is two part, slot the bottom screw all the way up, and drill or slot the top part accordingly. The hardest I have found was the marquis, which needs two screws slotted as well as a hole drilled [i just slotted that too out of laziness, but it works to feed juice]

    That's not Redneck, this is....

    If you don't have a tool to cut the metal with......... You can also cut a slot into the insulator with a razor blade or pocket knife. It does not have to form a full circle to prevent electrical contact or hold the post.

    1. split ring with knife/razor
    2. shave off additional 1mm (a little less than 1/16" in Redneck)

    That means you know your beers. :) If you like Shocktop, give the Spaten Franziskaner a try, instead of a Orange in it, use a Lemon in the Spaten. Pouring those two beers requires some knowledge though. With the Spaten Franziskaner, you want to leave approximately 1/4 of an inch in the bottle, shake it real well, let it sit for a minute, then pour the rest Ito your glass, in order to get all that yummy yeast goodness into your beer. :cheers:

    Do you know the Schneider Spectakulator? Schneider brewery is the best in regards to Weißbier! However, did you ever have a Jodelbauer Doppel Weißbock? It's made by a real small brewery in Bavaria. It's almost like a thick sweetish oil, but sooooo good!

    That was completely my fault, and I apologize for any inconvenience. Zam fixed it, though.

    Bottom feeding aka squonking is basically dripping without the inconvenience. Both bottom feeding and dripping are the most direct way of getting juice to the atomizer and provide the best flavor.

    A juice filled bottle is located inside the mod. When the atomizer starts getting dry a push of the bottle forces juice up via a tube through the connector into the atomizer feeding the wick, then reverse pressure from the bottle pulls the excess juice back into the bottle.

    Instead of dripping from the top, having to keep up with a extra bottle and focus on dripping when needed, just press a bottle already inside the mod to feed juice when needed.

    This does require the atomizer to have a bottom feeding center pin which is just a center pin with a hole in the center. That use to be rare and we often had to make our own but today more and more atomizers include them or bottom feeder pins are sold now that are compatible with most atomizers.
