    Hi,

    I share this quite old subject.
    I know that it can be sometime difficult (or expensive) to find the right BF pin, and it look that some of us got and like this RDA.

    I will try the modification with a clone.
    (It look advice to do it with a "dremel", hand working can look a bit "rude", even it's work)
    (it look there is not subject in the forum about pins modification, hope so)

    have a nice day

    Looking at the post you refer to, you should not have an problems doing as the original poster did.

    Any atty can be made into a bottom feeder with very little effort. All that is required is a tiny channel through the center pin.

    The hole does not have to be in the center of the center pin which is the most important idea to take away from the original post.

    You should not even have to go so far as to cut into the insulators. Nor should you have to create large channels, dual channels or anything fancy.

    Ideally, you would cut the smallest amount possible revealing just a pinhole on each end of the center pin. This is best aesthetically and also all that is necessary to have juice flood the deck.

    Unfortunately, with ordinary tools this is next to impossible.

    Here is a recent modification of a Bambino.

    The amount removed from the pin is only so much because of the thickness of the cutting tool used. This could be made smaller still but even the thinnest tool will instantly create a cut more wide than its shape because of imprecision with a hand held tool plus the vibration and jitter that comes with a high speed rotating object colliding with metal...

    All this is to remind anyone interested that you barely need to do anything to make a bottom feeding center pin and not to get carried away with your cutting. You need to remove far less metal than you think.
