Does anyone have any tips on how to vape a Payne’s nuc with a Varrox wand?
I‘ve not needed to do so before and it appears to be a little tricky, but I bet someone has found an effective way?
TIA,
Poot
 
do it from under the OMF - make a little eke to enclose the pan that the nuc can sit on - my photographs are for a Maisie's nuc but just make one to suit. I used the pointless battens supplied with a flatpack roof which are meant to be tacked to the inside of the roof.eke 1.jpgeke 2.jpgeke 3.jpgeke 4.jpgeke 6.jpg

Thanks - I was thinking it would have to be from beneath. I have an empty nuc I can use as a template, so a bit of woodwork beckons.
Thanks for the photos - they make it really clear👍

Is your underfloor mesh metal or plastic? If it's plastic beware of melting a hole in it

Good question…I’ll check, I think it’s metal. If not the eke will need to be a little wider methinks. Thanks for the query👍
