This is absolutely next level technology at work here- the result of years of thought, and a year of work to make.
The cap is so energy efficient that the running temps decrease 30-40F, and the pressure needed drops by about half. It's unlike anything, and after a dozen years in this field, we can safely say these are two of the absolute best executed tools we have ever seen.
The cap uses 3 new concepts in perfect unison:
Lateral intakes- airflow coming from multiple lateral intakes evens the pressure while minimizing the downward vectors that are prone to splashing
Windshield- the outer cylinder forces all air to rotate around it before escaping the the nail's intake. This concentrates the force, eliminating stray vectors. With the force slightly stronger at two points from the intakes, we still see high levels of penetration into the liquid layer, critical for efficient vaporization, while offering first rate splash mitigation.
Vaulted dome- the final piece of the puzzle, the vaulting in the center serves as a low pressure zone, forcing fluids into it. In effect, it acts as a vacuum assist, helping lower boiling points. It also encourages reclaim to collect at the easiest to clean portion. Standing upright, only the lower rim would sit on a table, dramatically reducing residual oil being left on your nice things.
Sized for halo/nimbus dishes, works amazingly on 28mm nails and very well on 25mm, doesn't fit 24mm.
The Spaded Shovel dabber:
Our initial reviews came in as "Nothing about this we don't love."
Unc 10-24, fits all of our threaded parts as well as Happy Daddy and Highly Educated (Happy Daddy used to make all of them).
The tip, machined separately and welded/polished. We considered a great many options. Ultimately, we decided forging was not precise enough and casting was too brittle. The time and effort to execute these us well worth it, and they truly stand out as heirloom quality tools.
