Why stainless steel corrodes sometimes? The main reason - inadequate steel processing prior to commissioning. Stainless steel does not like black steel neighborhood. If the ignorant master scratches stainless steel with black steel instruments, this may begin to rust. For this reason it is necessary to maximize the protection of stainless steel and black metal from mechanical impact.

Probably. Try not to dissolve the glue holding the magnets in, while trying to remove the rust.

Like Hartoled said, it is most likely the magnets that are rusting, but I agree stainless can rust ( although it would be a slower process ). One should take care when cleaning these things

Probably not the best grade stainless used with this mod, but I do like it. May have to drop one in the basket after CNY

People should know by now.
Poor grade ss. Nickel plated screws. Metal is contact with dissimilar metal. Add water for more than a few minutes and there's a good chance it will rust.

Where water can gather and not fully dry. Don't use water.

I clean with old tooth brush, hot water and dishwashing liquid, rinse thoroughly and dry. Never soak. Never clean pieces with water that can not be fully dried. I would never get water near the magnets on this mod. (dissimilar metal + water = oxidation)

Above goes for good quality folding knives.

Makes me think vaper will eventually be use as a derogatory word.

So true sushi6. Your not going to get the best of materials for this price range, but even so a decent mod for the money.

In my world, the offerings here are practical for me. They will last me at least as long until the next 'best thing' hits the new arrivals. They will likely hit the drawer before they wear out or break, but thats just me :)

rust tastes better than wd40.

Do you have a rust problem?

To prevent rust, evenly apply a good coating of lead based paint, being careful to get it in all the holes and don't forget any moving parts and threads - they're easy to miss. It's also a splendid way to pep up tired coils and mouthpieces and adds a pleasant nutty flavour.

If the paint is reluctant to adhere, you may need to use an arsenic-based primer. It may be purchased from any reputable corner shop and should be applied over dry metal only. If your metal is not dry, it should be dipped in salt and raccoon saliva which is renowned for its deliquescent properties.

Be careful not to do anything stupid such as spilling vinegar on your component and do not operate machinery or drive with a full bladder.

What I find really curious is how the magnets didn't attract the rust instead of it floating freely. Are you sure that it wasn't glue?

What juice , if any, came into contact with the affected parts?

Just out of curiosity I ran a google on
can nicotine corrode steel?

The return was astonishing. A plethora of articles about how the Chinese have discovered that tobacco is an effective rust inhibitor. It totally sideswiped me. It may make interesting reading.

wrong expression "floating", rust was attracted by magnets.
