DIY - Enhance The Vibrations of Your Favorite Tantus & Vixin Silicone Toys

DIY - Enhance The Vibrations of Your Favorite Tantus & Vixin Silicone Toys

Gunsmoke Gunsmoke
I've been frustrated by the watch battery vibes that come with many of the otherwise high quality dildos from Tantus & Vixen - so I finally did something about it!

I measured a small vibe like this link - mine is about 5/8".

Went to my fav hardware store and bought a 5/8" Irwin Speed Bore drill bit

Drilled a hole in the Champ (big brother of the Champlette) link

Put a little lube on the vibe - slid it in and viola - a brand new vibrating dildo with all the advantages of silicone and the strong vibes usually reserved for cheap jelly toys!

While I was on a roll - I took our Tantus Maverick link and converted it from a boring too-smooth large dildo - into a more interesting vibrating dildo!

Now I've yet to try these out on my gal - but I'm wondering what you think?

Will she like the results?

Would you every 'fix' a toy to make it better? If so, tell us about it!

That is rather cool, I'm not that handy so i think I'd be to worried about breaking the toy. But you never know what I'll do when I bored. Although I am interested in a good way to cleanly cut silicone to trim down a butt plugs uncomfortable base.

That is awesome! I was actually wondering how to do this for myself not that long ago. I was worried that I would ruin the toy though. Very cool!

I have The Original (have yet to remove it from the packaging) and after seeing it I was wondering how I could add a vibe to it. You answered my question!

Tell the old man to get out his drill and fix it - then when he's done, tell him Ok, not that drill, the electric one!

Did it drill clean on such a soft product?? I'd love to see pics if you don't mind sharing!

HA! So the silicone didn't melt or stick to the bit?

I didn't go to quite the extent that you did, but I "fixed" my set of 10X Silicone TPR beads in this video. I cut them shorter. Still, I was freaked out that I did this. I have not yet had a chance to try them out.

surgery on anal beads

Report back later.

We'd love to see pictures of your alterations.

So you drilled a 4.5" deep by 5/8" diameter hole down the center of the Maverick and the Champ with a speed bit without coming out the sides? That's pretty impressive. I tried to convert some of my non-vibrating toys into vibrating toys with limited success and that was only drilling a 2" deep hole into them. What did you use to hold the toy? Maybe a drill press would be nice.

OK - so I'll take some pics and figure out how to post them.

Angel asked about a 'clean' cut. The results were mixed. The harder Maverick produced a very clean hole. The softer silicone of the Champ was not as clean and did require several reamings. I would apply pressure to the outside to keep the soft silicone from just pushing away from the bit.

Redboxbaby - yes some silicone stuck to the bit - but it didn't melt or interfere with the drilling. When I first tried to push in the vibe, I lubricated the hole with a nut oil-based lube. The hole was a little too small - so I reamed it again and the oil turned out to be a great additive to the process - helping to remove shavings from inside the hole.

Jimbo - yes I drilled that deep - the vibe goes all the way in. No drill press necessary with the large diameter toys I was working with. It would be a lot more difficult with smaller diameter toys.

If my wife likes the results - I'm going to drill out the O2 Revolution next.

Pictures to come!

I'd be careful with that one, part of the O2s structure is the hard core in the middle!

You will have to upload the photos to a site like Flickr or photobucket and then you would put img|photo url|photo description inside the [] brackets. I tried to do a different way of explaining and it kept making a broken image link...

That was the first thing I thought of.

The firm core actually makes it easier to do.

I have yet to acquire a silicone toy that isn't compatible with my Little Steel, which does the bonus job of adding a handle to flimsy-based toys like the Tantus Echo. Watch battery bullets just get emptied of their batteries and banished into the ziplock bag of shame in my toy trunk.

Changing toys is something I would not hesitate to do, though, should the need arise. I revived a dead bullet with a replacement cord once, and that dimmer switch on my beside lamp had much less innocent origins.

Here are the photos. First the basic tool (not including the electric drill):

The tools


This is the Champ (not Champlette) with vibe inserted - note the shaft is a little straighter than normal with the vibe in place:

Champ



This is the Maverick - much firmer and dead-straight:

Maverick

OK - I've tried 2x - with images in photo bucket no images sorry! If you want the JPEG images send me an email to the address in my profile.

Could you post a link to your photobucket page? That would make it easier for you! I honestly don't know bc I use flickr.

Never knew how to do that - thanks. One of the image links is wrong - this is the correct link Maverick

I checked and the link now works correctly!

Cool. I knew it could be done, just never got around to trying it. You know, this would make a good workshop.

You handy, creative guy! I am impressed. I'm always afraid I'll permanently maim myself since I'm not that handy but maybe it's time I start dabbling in other tools Can't wait to hear what your wife think of the results!

That is really neat. I've been researching safe sex toy mods and this was a fantastic idea.

Just reporting back in - the revamped Champ is a hit - the Maverick hasn't been tried yet. So far DIY has been worth the effort.

This is so cool! I may have to try this, but not being handy with tools I'm scared I'll mess the toys up! I would love to add vibes to many of my dildos. You sure are handy Gunsmoke, and your gal is a lucky one!
