    It doesn't look too bad and rolls quite evenly

    Thanks for the offer.

    Would the damaged O ring be the reason that the mouthpiece air control doesn'r click into place?

    It's my belief that the whole chimney section is off centre see first photo or is that what they are like?

    cheers

    Yep,

    Also, doesnt try to click it into place off the base.
    On the base, the AFC only goes in to the point where the ring of dots are just visible above the top of the chimney. i.e. You can see all dots to align them.
    Off the base though, it will go further, so the dots on the AFC tube disappear down inside the chimney (AKA way too far).
    I learnt this the hard way

    Ahhhh..... ok thanks @allen

    Think I get it...

    Here is it with my attempt of putting the shagged O ring back in place. It then clicks into place of sorts.

    Do I get in touch with FT and tell them it's a crock of shite?

    cheers

    A few thoughts.
    Yes, the oring is a fucker to get in. I used tweezers and, like you that last loops suddenly clicks in as the oring spreads out.
    If you fancy a challenge - try the black one! It took half an hour (seriously!) and then turned out to be a bit too tough and chewed up immediately. Aaaargh

    Try rolling the centre screw along on the edge of the table with the wider bit hanging over an edge. This might give a better idea if it's bent.

    Could the issue possibly be the insulator this pin goes into?
    If a) the hole inside isn't straight or b) the outer threads are shagged this might cause the centre pin to be at an angle

    Doh... lol

    Yes one of the pins is bent....

    I've opened up a ticket with FT and we'll see what comes of it.

    I will take you up on your kind offer of the O rings though m8 when they arrive.

    I'll keep you posted on what FT say.

    thanks again for your time and help.

    cheers

    It appears lots of the ft ones are turning up with no groove cut in the positive pins to house the wire.

    I'm feeling a bit smug.
    No issues with my nextasis apart from the o-ring really

    Plus I got the pretty box
    Then again, i did pay $30 including delivery for mine

    I think i was just lucky

    This is why I waited for the sxk nextiny to be reviewed first but I will probably be joining the agony soon as I'm the sxk rose v3 guinea pig this time.
