    I've been thinking of making claptons, aliens and others soon, but i don't have the $$$ to burn for practicing. been too tight on budget lately due to my girlfriends pregnancy. I'm getting a wasp nano next month or so and it would suck if i still be using micro coils on those kinds of atomizer. all im asking is if you guys got some extra spools of wires that you won't be using anymore so i could start practicing on making claptons and other variants i would gladly appreciate it. Its fine if i don't get any im just trying my luck over here.


    PS. Ill be posting the coils i made at the coils section if i could grab some wires to use.

    If you don't know what's in it, don't heat it up and inhale from it. I doubt the picture kit says what grade
    of SS the wire is, does it? Like 316, 304, etc... Being made for sale at the Dollar Tree, I doubt it is a grade that's safe - and hey, you can get 8 times that length online for just 2 or 3 times the price...and know the source and the material

    If it's just for fun and not use, yeah sure, still cheaper to buy real wire on a spool though overall

    i tried a couple of copper wires which is available on local hardware, i don't know why but it keeps on breaking. i got 28ga and 30ga wrapped with 36ga but both 28g and 30g breaks, and everytime it does that i always try to avoid getting hit. yeah its so dangerous but i don't have much of a choice as getting vaping supply in my country is quite expensive. everytime i go to local supermarkets i always check the hardware section to look for suitable wire to use for practice but no to avail and it sucks.

    What country are u from? I have a little bit of wire I don’t use but you would have to pay shipping. And if u were Already going to pay shipping you might as well order some from a website or other vendor

    Buying wire from a vape shop should not be a budget killer. Looking at this thread just made me wonder how well stainless steel electric fence wire would work. I still have a quarter mile of that.

    nah vape supply is currently expensive here a wasp nano which cost about $12 at fasttech sells for about $30 here. though you could get it for around $20 - $24 on other region but they also charge shipping which cost around $4 usd. I'd rather buy directly at fasttech and wait for a month. could you check if that ss not springy if you dont mind.

    @Lady Sarah check this out.

    a 100ft spool of kanthal cost $20 but at kbee you could get 6 spools of 100ft for about $22.

    P.S
    and btw its alot cheaper to get vape supply online as there's some price competition going on than buying it locally. but still its way too expensive.

    It ain't springy. Not sure what type of ss it is right now, and I ain't going out to the shed to check, with ice sliding off the roof.
