    Excellent advice/tips @raymo2u It does take a while to learn how to build exotic coils and the only way to do it is through trial and error. I have failed more times than I can count but I did learn along the way.

    One reason why you haven't seen me post any builds is because they are buried deep underneath all the noise, just like the useful advice from pro builders who left the place ages ago. Another reason is I don't actually even like or need to build that often... I guess you could say I like to spend more time reading the useful advice instead of driving in circles posting the same type of shit not just a couple of times, but doing it over and over and over calling it "progress" with 95% just talk about things like why people think it must be called that, while the 5% useful advice is still getting buried underneath that like usual, and, if two is the number of pro builders you can come up with who are still active here, then IMO you have already kind of proven my point.

    I've made money from it, that's the only requirement to be "professional," by definition lol

    Edit: Buried under noise, indeed! Lmfao! :facepalm::tantrum: @Carambrda if you don't read your own posts then I guess they don't count as noise to you, do they?!?!

    It’s what the all “official” threads were created for I believe ...Mach1nes content page to locate all of them is stickied ....admittedly don’t think one exists right now for para Clapton techniques unless I’m mistaken

    I believe that would be covered in The Official Stagger/Fused Thread.

    Its just more of a post that I wouldnt say are tips, more like diagnostic and basic knowledge for aliens/paraclapping. Maybe someday Ill write our a massive post on small things like that...

    Some of the best qoutes to remember when doing anything...

    Thomas A. Edison:
    "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work."
    “Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
    “If we all did the things we are really capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.”
    “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”
    “Negative results are just what I want. They’re just as valuable to me as positive results. I can never find the thing that does the job best until I find the ones that don’t.”

    Johnny Cash:
    “You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.”

    Coco Chanel:
    “Success is most often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable.”

    Henry Ford:
    “The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.”

    Winston Churchill:
    “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

    Denis Waitley:
    “Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.”

    Well actually I never said that you haven't made progress, and, I do share my builds because they're right here for everyone to see, just like the useful advice from pro builders is, if you care to spend the time to search for it before you post. By "noise" I was only referring to my observation that useful advice is still continuing to get buried underneath all the endless chitchat so if the fact you put me on ignore is going to help reduce your own endless chitchat, then I consider that a good thing.

    Wasn’t meant for you mate ;) But saw you posted in there as well which is great :cheers: I’d say that was a tip for sure

    encouragement and sharing as we go in here is the whole point ...without taking on board Raymos ,chefs, warriors, machines, owls and many others encouragement and tips I’d never had passed the fused Clapton stage especially as machine had to talk me into joining this thread in the first place. Sure I watched all the pioneer vids same as everyone else does but it’s that personal encounter and chit chat with others... you just can’t beat it to try the next thing...

    ...in fact I remember saying to machine I didn’t feel deserving of showing my shitty early builds in the coil porn thread ...but it’s never been a place for egos at least since I’ve been here and hope it never gets that way either!

    Wish I got more time to build than I do and post up myself it’s why I largely watch from afar these days and try not to interfere with everyone who is posting builds daily

    Keep it up build fam you’re doing great!

    So this is my first attempt at a coil about 3 years ago. Heck, I had no choice but to get better, as I couldn't get any worse!

    Too many to mention, but I do like the way the stitched alien framed staples came out that I posted not too long ago.

    Or the Babliens as Meg likes to call them:

    This one took quite a while to do:

    To tell you the truth I never posted my 0th coil build. It tasted like hellfire gargoyle hoof shoes.

    When the education community puts Nikola Tesla in the History books and hold him to a higher standard then Einstein....then Ill give him credit for anything hes done. Einstein was intelligent and he had some incredible findings, but the only reason why hes known of is because he fell in line and was used to push the establishment.
    One quote I will give you that Einstein did say...
    Einstein was asked how it felt to be the smartest man on Earth, Einstein replied, "I wouldn't know. Ask Nikola Tesla"

    Almost everything we have today in a technological aspect is a derivative of Tesla's work....but you wont find him in any book taught in schools, even decent schools that arent deep into indoctrination. Tesla was the smartest and greatest genius of all time but was suppressed heavily, made to look crazy, isnt recognized by the masses for all of his achievements and findings we take for granted today.

    It reminds me of how America's population has devolved to a point where they no longer recognize important historical facts or care of why they are important (such as why we celebrate the 4th of July!). Idiocracy is in realtime. We are only given what they decide to give us for education and people have become so self infatuated that they dont care to learn anything beyond that....leaving important figures, dates, events, and other historical data to slowly dissolve and be forgotten. If you dont believe me...watch some of these videos, then ask yourself how far has education come in the last 100 years? What types of legislation are being passed as these people are voters who decide on very important issues. Where does it lead to in 20-30 years? "Brawndo has what plants crave" is all I hear when thinking about it.

    I have hope though, there are some people that still have work ethic, have morals, independent thought, push to educate themselves, and look for meaningful ways to spend their time. Thats why I love the building community, its a hobby with invested individuals......the types of people that have these qualities. I believe people with Hobbies and a good sense of humor are some of the only "real people" in the world.

    Dont mind the rant, I just felt like sharing my thoughts. I come for chitchat, builds, and good beer, but you fuckers dont seem to help pay the beer tab....o_O:blah:

    People build for different reasons. Some do it for fun, others for stress release, fame, use, supply. The way I see it is to give advice when you can and show as often as you can. It helps, even if the person isn't a member or doesn't post. I build a lot but it is to supply a few small shops. So I rarely do builds for the sake of doing it or because it looks pretty...and when I do decide on a spec it isn't good enough to do it once or 10 times...I need to be able to do it 100 time consistently in a time frame so what others can put up with I may not and what I may do or need to do others may not. There is a real difference in needing to build 10 coils in a day and 100.

    Got the Vandy Vape Triple RTA in a trade with Redbullque, so I put a simple fused Clapton build in it. 2x27K/42N. In addition to the awesome flavor, this thing could easily win a cloud comp with these 3 coils. And it fits nicely on the TAC 21.
