Thanks for the info, VapingBad, 

I would just about  stretch to this if I could get an Evolv 510 at a sensible price but the shipping alone at Protovapor for their 510 is a  minimum of $27 bringing the price with mounting hardware to almost $50 before even factoring in VAT/import/royal mail charges.

I have sent an inquiry off to Evolv about them supplying 510s.

If there is a way to place some of these enclosures with a UK supplier
either with Evolv 510 connectors or changed to fit FDV/Varitube 510s that would 
be great.


EDIT - If anyone in the UK can supply me with just ONE Evolv 510 please
let me know and I will be ordering a modcrate enclosure straight away!

The only thing I can suggest ATM is getting together with others in the UK and buying in quantity Mac, if you got 8 it would bring them down to about £20 each, more than that you would get charged import duty.

You could drill and tap a 1/2" UNF brass bolt to make an a adapter, IIRC (but check before you do anything) VT thread in M10x0.5 and FD M10x1 neither a standard thread.

Personally I wouldn't want anything other than than the Evolv 510.

I agree with VB that those in the UK that are interested get together and buy the enclosure DNA200 etc, and 510 in quantity for the best deal. Shipping from Protovapor for single 510 is a deal breaker for me.

Also, duty etc is a bit of a lottery, I have had items that 'slipped' through with nothing to pay, plus it depends on how the supplier fills in the customs form!

We are working on an adapter and spacer so FDV 510s can be used. If you do pick up a connector for protovapor you do not need the mounting hardware the 1/2" threading is plenty to retain the 510 you can just run some solder from GND out to the nearest mounting pad to make the electrical connection.

These will be offered anodized at some point.

if u are using the evolv connector in the box you do not need to run solder for ground. the board is grounded to the case with mounting screws and the 510 is grounded to case also when its threaded in. i have a reference box and that is how it was setup from evolv

You don't have to but if you tighten the boards down all the way it just meant buttons don't actuate very well so instead of having a questionable mechanical connection we ran solder

Wouldn't grinding a little of the back of the button actuators fix that and allow the board to be tighten down fully for a good common ground connection?

I suppose it would still prefer a solder joint to a mechanical connection any day.

I'm not sure if they are manufacturing their own version from my understanding there have been some QA issues with the 510 and we are looking into manufacturing the connector ourselves.

As of this moment yes protovapor is the best place to pick up the connector you do not need the mounting hardware with this case.
