Meet Jared of jRad Melts

JRad Melts Glass Tanks

Tanks are my preferred method of e-liquid delivery while vaping, and in my opinion, nothing mass produced comes close to a hand crafted item. There is something special when you are holding a one of a kind, unique item that was born from someone’s imagination and own hands.

I recently lost my favorite, due to time and usage…

Searching for a replacement, I came across jRad Melts. A one man shop, who hand crafts frosted and clear tanks and drip tips from glass.

Welcome to Modding Mavericks, where I introduce you to the people behind the vaping scenes.

If you appreciate hand crafted tanks, or custom drip tips, be sure to check out jRad Melts offerings.

I now introduce you to Jared Dreessen of jRad Melts, who hand crafts drip tips and tanks from Borosilicate glass.
