While I have been laid up with my knee operation and recovery, my brain has been on overtime as I have been bored. I was wondering about those silly things people suck on to replace cigarettes, while in traffic yesterday I noticed the car in front leaving a smoke screen as the driver was sucking on a vapour cigarette. Judging by the amount of smoke it was making I thought, "could one be used as a smoke/steam generator". Anyone know how they work, and has anyone tried this idea before. I have just had 2 days without any pain killers, and I'm feeling much better, had a bad infection in the wound, but now almost gone with the antibiotics help.
Well that's my thought for the day, it's now time for bed.
Cheers Colin.

Hmm, could work Colin.
But wouldn't it be a bit bulky and expensive compared to a model Smoker?
And difficult to modify to be able to control it.
S'pose I'll have to take one apart to find out 😁
Glad to hear the k-nee is doing better 👍
Cheers, Doug

But, what would you use.
To pull the smoke out with?

Doug, Looks like you might.

Colin, Good to hear your knee is doing better. 👍

Well Doug I have got one of these vapour cigarettes, free of charge, but need to get a power supply for it, it runs on 6 volts, will add some pictures when it arrives tomorrow, apparently it has adjustable air flow and has a 25ml reservoir for the oil.
Cheers Colin.

Here is the vaporiser I have managed to scrounge, its missing it's battery pack, but have tested with a borrowed battery pack. I am thinking of using a small cylinder pump like a bicycle tyre pump, running on a crank, with its own speed controller allowing for a gentle puff-puff at low speeds, and speed it up for getting a more constant stream of vapour. Another option is a 12v air pump from a fish tank setup, another item in my oddments box. All ideas will be considered before starting the build. I think it should work with most of my larger scale models as it works either vertical or horizontal.
Give me your views, cheers Colin.
