Since many folks have asked to see how the new spring loaded 510 connectors are working out, I figured having a few photos centrally posted would be the best solution to give my email inbox a chance to recover.
Stainless and Black finish
Adapted & updated PipeSmith proprietary G4 Fire Kit Base
How they sit on the shank face
And a working model fit into my LS Huntsman This shank was left short intentionally, as I didn't particularly want to re-shank this pipe, but just re-fit with the new connector. New builds will have a slightly longer shank (~5/16") that will effectively equal the final length of the prior generations with the heat sink.
As always - you guys see it first here, and I'm always interested in your thoughts.

bookbear: It's rare for someone to stay at a job more than five years these days, I am told. Aside from my first job with Disneyland (3 years), I was with the same employer for 35 years and retired from them. Good luck in the new position!
