To tell the truth, I don't know what a Diver is but I have been eyeing up the Billet Box for ages.
lobeydosser ... this is a little guide I produced a while ago taking hints and tips from various sources including Atmistique which may be of help when setting up the diver
SCUBA TANK AND DIVER SET UP
Lubricate the O ring on the base with a little e-liquid
Screw the tube and base together and mark on base where the e-liquid feed hole ends up
Make a coil with 2 x 2mm silica wicks and Res/NonRes wire (note that N-R-N wire is what is recommended but I have used normal 2mm resistance kanthal with no noticeable difference ... the legs on the coil are so short that there is negligible voltage drop in them.
Cut one leg of the coil a little shorter than the other and feed the legs through the holes in the ceramic cup
Fold back the negative leg and then cut and push the positive leg into the 510 pin hole of the ceramic cup
Insert the 510 pin fully into the bottom of the base
Insert the ceramic cup into the top of the base ensuring that the wicks are to the sides of the e-liquid feed hole mark .. Hold the 510 pin firmly against the bottom of the base while pushing the ceramic cup firmly into the base
Twist off the excess negative wire
Cut the wicks on both sides level with the top of the base threading
Ease the coil up a little if it is too close to the 510 pin as excess e-liquid on the coil can make contact with the pin and run down it causing a leak.
Wet the wicks and coil with e-liquid
Wiggle and push the tube over the ceramic cup until it reaches the threading on the base
Trim / tuck in any excess wick that is showing
Screw home the tube
Lubricate the O rings in the Scuba tank caps with e-liquid
Insert the diver into the Scuba tank through the bottom cap with the e-liquid feed hole of the Diver in line with the fill hole in the Scuba base cap
1st time fill .. half way
Thereafter .. fill to just below the e-liquid feed hole on the Diver
NOTE: To avoid damaging the ceramic cup during disassembly, first try to wiggle the ceramic cup out of the base. If this is not succesful, insert a screwdriver into the 510 pin and turn it from side to side to loosen its grip on the ceramic cup and then try removing the cup again.
Cheers Neil ... I watched so many youtube videos and read so many threads on other forums ( a lot about potential leaking) that I decided to put all the most helpful tips down on paper in some sort of setting up order ... by following this guide I have never had any problems although the diver does weep a little from the 510 connection if left sitting off the mod overnight but a couple of puffs and everything is back to normal.
Great purchase lobeydosser! I'll own one of these some day I'd have had this in a flash if my car didn't have a £400 appointment at the mechanics, it took me all my willpower and more not to bite Neil's hand off.
I had seen a video when the Billet Box first came out but I couldn't remember the details. I didn't have the money back then to invest in one, so I really didn't pay much attention to it, apart from drooling. Now my savings are such that I can afford to buy it and the idea of being able to rebuild the atties makes it even more appealing.
So tomorrow is Carrier and Postie Stalking Day!!! I have a few parcels coming tomorrow. It will be Christmas all over again!
