Hole in drip tip adapter?
In the middle picture you can see a hole in the drip tip adapter. What is it for? I have this kit and it has the hole.

The threads are so tight I couldn't get it threaded all the way down. Even needle nose couldn't grab it because of the slope. Because I couldn't get it seated it leaked all over the top. Sputtered actually. Finally gave up and put the old tip back on.

I'll give the threads a good filing and try later.

The hole inside holds the piece on a rod during manufacturing while they thread it :)

Use a small screwdriver in the hole to tighten the driptip adapter to the top cap
Vapin stoopid is just natural selection in progress. Remember no matter where you go there you are.
