    LMAO!!!! so NOT refined. It's more like my hands just do it and I can only explain what happened after the fact. As a matter of fact almost all of my interactions with the wire is that way. I plan before and reflect after. But during the process a lot of the time I'm just kind of doing it. That's not to say I don't have to think about it and pay attention. But a lot of it feels like an auto-pilot. The harder I try to make it do what I want the less success I have. The more I let the wire do it's own thing the more success I have. And that includes the wrapping process.

    A pair of amazing Mohawk Aliens sent by @Shredtravolta in the DPro rda. An insanely flavorful, warm, cloudy vapethat I'm vaping in the matching unregulated mod. Ohmed out at .11Ω.

    This man seriously knows his craft!

    Yo Peg, so nice to hear from you.
    Show up more if you can.
    Go vape your 22g kanthal and be happy. I thank you for the time you built, really inspired me.
    But we have to do what make us happy, right?
    ENjoy your new life style and we'll be here if someday you miss those unvapable hedgehogs and just for the pic coils, lol.
    All of the best for you.
    :)

    Tried, but couldn't get a pic to focus for this one. Made 28ka1/38n80 mtl clapton, 2.5mm id, 7 wraps at 1.45Ω for my Nixon rdta and mom's serpent mini as well. Faster ramp up and a good flavor build.

    Single Core Claptons are a great vape at high ohms. I use 28/38 or 30/40, typically around 1 ohm, in my Kayfun lite. They also work well for series stacks. 26/38 Ni80, 8-9 wraps on a 3mm ID dual coil, is a great series vape.

    Ya, I have to agree. This mtl clapton is vaping amazing. Just flavor for days and it's not popping nearly as bad as the premade 36/32 one that I was using. I've had that premade spool for a very long time, but don't really like them. Flavor is good, but ramp up is insane and it pops really hard. Scares the crap of my uncle and mom every time it happens haha.

    A closer look at the series aliens. Apparently my wrap job wasn't as clean as it looks. Either that or I fiddled to much after install

    I have 2 sets of HohmLife's, HG2's, and 25r's. The HohmTechs are my favorite. They really seem to last quite a bit longer than the HG2 with approx. the same mAh. And they seem to hit a little harder on my parallel boxes. The lg's had been my favorite ADV batts for a while before that.

    I just picked up a set of HohmWork v2. 25 amp 2500 mah and they hit harder than the vct5a. Also just picked up a set of 30T's cause I got something special coming ... will share in a couple weeks! :O

    Framed staples. 6 ply .3x.1 ribbon, 29GA frames with 38GA wrapped around them. These were an absolute breeze to fuse. :D

    Got me some more juice from @zephyr - meg. Needed something fresh to vape it out of. Figured it was only propper to vape it from some of her classic coils. So, I threw together some 8 ply .3/28/46 Framed staples, 5 wraps on a 3 mm ID, .12 ohm (came out really high and I can't figure out why) dual coil.

    An amazing single Fralien made by the amazing @Shredtravolta. Just testing it on the Magneto II tube mod. Will end up on the Hive squonker when it comes in. Can't wait.[​IMG]

    Those engine nano's are still great vapes with tasty flavor. Used to have five of those lil buggers. :teehee: They really shine with 28GA builds, IMHO. Kinda regret not keeping one for myself when I sold them a few months ago. :crazy:

    Thanks guys :D I'm pretty comfy doing 46g claps. Groove fusing with it aint to bad. I've done a few aliens with it to varying successes . But anything beyond that I just don't have the skill yet. I plateaued at 42 and haven't pushed myself further.

    My G2 needed some attention. He's just been sitting over in the corner all lonesome for months.

    SSFC 4 ply .3 KA1/28g Ni80/40g SS316L, 5 wrap on a 2.5mm ID, .11 ohms (pre-fire). Figure if I was going to do my most comfortable build I'd throw in a little mixed alloys and hopefully get a color show :) Only the pref-ire shots at the moment. Maybe sit down with it after I get the kids in bed. But probably work on pulsing tomorrow.

    And yes I intentionally mounted them this way. I wanted that extra ~1/2 wrap. I am pushing resistance damn low as it is for my typical RTA build.

    That's a seriously clean build. I haven't even attempted anything to do with staggering yet. One day I'll have to try it. Can't wait to see thecolor shots!

    Gotta hate it when you dont pay attention to how long its been since i charged the drill. My old drill would start to run a lil slower. Had some warning. This drill runs strong rite till it cuts out.
    That just happened to me. Frustrating but my own fault. Lol
