Pinnacle Drip Tips


Pinnacle Drip Tips is home to the first drip tip with a stainless steel core. I take pride in producing high quality luxury drip tips at a reasonable price. Each tips is created on a cnc lathe to ensure a consistent shape and a proper fit. Next it is maliciously hand sanded and polished to a jewelry quality shine. Available in many shapes and materials on 16 different cores, I am sure you will find your perfect drip tip. Years of turning experience, great ideas from customers and tons of feed back has made these tips possible. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to contribute in their creation!

I make these drip tips for a hobby. In my spare time I am only able to make a limited number in each batch. If all of the tips have been sold you can be notified when they are back in stock by subscribing to the newsletter.
I created my first drip tip in redwood burl for Txtumbleweed's(ECF) tube mod on 3-22-12. This tip was coated with CA glue on the inside to prevent swelling from the e-liquid. Due to the wood being very thin at the neck of the tip it eventually broke.


When Big Screen D(ECF) heard about the broken tip he came up with the idea to glue a stainless steel tube inside of the wood. On 4-30-12 the first version 2 drip tip was created. On this design the stainless tube stopped about 1/16" below the tip. This greatly increased the strength of the wood and allowed the stainless tube to be hidden. This was the first drip tip created with a stainless steel core.


On 6-10-12 tmcase(ECF) requested her tips to be 1 inch in height. Prior to this all of the tips were 1.5 inches in height. Now they are available in 1", 1.25" and 1.5"


On 8-22-12 Valcityboy(ECF) had a mild allergic reaction shorty after receiving his tube mod with tip. His allergic reaction was caused by the center of the lathe wearing threw the CA finish at the very end of the tip. He came up with the idea to run the stainless tube completely through the tip so only stainless would come in contact with the vapor. This new design (version 3) eliminated his allergic reaction.


On 1-1-13 I learned that the version 2 and version 3 tips had a big problem. After making 40+ tips in the new design the 510 connector started breaking on a few tips. I believe this was caused due to the o-ring swelling and side to side movement. E-liquid in constant contact with the acrylic may also degrade its strength. Some of these tips are still in use and will be covered under warranty when they break.


On 1-3-13 using my 1950ish Logan metal lathe I created the first stainless steel core with a connector. The new stainless core eliminated all contact between acrylic and e-liquid. The tube of the core extends all the way to the tip to prevent allergic reactions. The stainless 510 connector is extremely durable and will not tarnish.


After turning 22 stainless cores it was time to make some version 4 tips. On 1-13-13 I turned the first drip tip with a stainless core and connector.


At this point the profit from turning had finally paid off my wood lathe and all of the other tools that go with it. Now it was time for a new toy in the shop. I purchased a CNC lathe to bring together programming and turning which are two of my favorite hobbies. On 4-29-13 after months of work and programming the CNC lathe created the first Pinnacle drip tip.


On 08-24-2013 metukka(ECF) requested his tips to be 0.75 inch in height. Prior to the this smallest tip was 1 inch in height. Now they are available in 0.75", 1", 1.25" and 1.5"


On 06-01-2014 I created the first compact dual connector. I was always reluctant to make a dual o-ring connector before because it added length to the connector and wouldn't fit on my device. Removing the o-ring partition on the connector solved the problem.


On 08-17-2014 I created the first hollow core drip tip in a 4mm bore to test direct dripping. The 4mm bore was to small for dripping which led to the 5mm. Hollow core tips are now available in 1/8, 4mm and 5mm bore. It was named "hollow core for drippers" by tearose50(ECF) and the name hollow core stuck.

The one piece stainless core is the foundation of every tip created. It prevents e-liquid and vapor from coming in contact with the outer material. The tube of the core increases the strength of the tips stem. The connector is very durable and features a compact dual o-ring connector that will fit your device even if it has a shallow drip well. Every tip comes with two sets of o-rings so you can adjust how tight your drip tip fits. The o-rings that come on each tip provide a snug fit. The second set of o-rings are larger and will provide a tight fit.

The Original style core has a thicker stainless tube that is visible at the tip. They feature a 1/8 bore, dual o-rings and come in heights of 0.75, 1.0, 1.25 and 1.5.

Hollow core drip tips is the newest innovation. The stainless wall of the tube is much thinner than the originals, yet provides plenty of support for the tip stem. The inside of the bore near the tip has been hollowed out, providing an amazing seamless look. The bore is available in 1/8, 4mm and a 5mm which is perfect for dripping. They also feature dual o-rings and come in heights of 0.75, 1.0, 1.25 and 1.5.
Pen blanks are the material that cover the stainless steel core. These blanks come in a huge variety of materials, patterns and colors. Tips are created in Tru-stone, M3, Lava, Genesis, Inlace Acrylester, Acrylic Acetate, Resin and Glow Stonez. The cost of these blanks vary as much as their colors and patterns. Therefore, the purchase price is adjusted based on the materials used to create them, so you will never be charged a M3 price for acrylic.


Acrylic Acetate Acrylic Acetate is a moderately soft acrylic. So far the durability of this material has been awesome. My tip hits the floor on a regular basis at work(construction) and so far it has held up great. It has hit hard enough to ding the stainless at the tip without breaking. If you abuse your mod like I do this is your material. Acrylic Acetate blanks can be seen at woodturningz.com
Inlace Acrylester Inlace Acrylester is manufactured by Wood Turningz. It is a strong yet brittle acrylic. I have found this material will take a beating most of the time, but when hit or dropped just right it breaks. Inlace Acrylester blanks can be seen at woodturningz.com
Glow Stonez According to Wood Turningz Glow Stonez is cultured granite. While turning I have found his material to be very similar to Inlace Acrylester. I would assume that this material will hold up similar to Inlace Acrylester, but I have not had a chance to beat on it yet. Glow Stonez blanks can be seen at woodturningz.com
Genesis Genesis is a cellular composite that is an Inlace Acrylester variant. This material is manufactured by Wood Turningz. In hardness I have found this material to be about halfway inbetween Inlace Acrylester and Acrylic Acetate. I have not had a chance to beat on it yet, but would assume its durability would also fall in the middle. Genesis blanks can be seen at woodturningz.com
Resin In hardness I have found resin to be about the same as Inlace Acrylester. I have not had a chance to beat on it yet, but would assume its durability is similar to Inlace Acrylester. Resin blanks can be seen at woodturningz.com
Tru-Stone Tru-Stone is manufactured from approximately 85% natural stone ore that has been pulverized to a powder and then mixed with pigments and acrylic resin. Depending on the type of Tru-Stone it can be very brittle or moderatly soft. I assume the softer Tru-Stone will hold up better, but I only beat on a brittle one. I have found that they hold up pretty well to abuse, but if hit just right they break. On their site the blanks are labeled as easy, moderate, and hard to turn. The easy to turn blanks are the softer ones and the hard to turn blanks are brittle. Tru-Stone blanks can be seen at randbcrafts.com
M3 This material is made with up to 95% of the real metal that has been atomized down to the molecular level and combined with special chemical binders to form a new composite material called M3 (short for "MacroMolecular Metal"). At $30.00 per blank I have not abused this material. I have heard that they will break simular to Tru-Stone. So don't let the metal fool you into thinking this material will take abuse. M3 blanks can be seen at randbcrafts.com
Amalgam-Mutt Blanks Amalgam-Mutt makes many different blanks that can be turned into amazing tips. Amalgam-Mutt Blanks can be seen at beartoothwoods.com
These drip tips have been programmed into the lathe and can now be made in a wide variety of materials and colors.
