    There's a little learning curve, but you can do it, and when you do, it's very enjoyable and relaxing, not to mention very satisfying to build them!

    Well I took a short unplanned break from the wire. But I've decided I miss it to much.
    Here's a macro and then some color on the tsukalien ... still need to finish pulsing it.

    And a fun little thing I threw together this afternoon.

    Is that brass? Do you like brass? I'm trying to decide if I get copper or brass when I get my next tube.

    I guess I do like brass - but really I like this one specific exact mod, used it and the DPRO only for like a year now. Copper tubes make my hands smell like funky old pennies, they're too soft and easily corroded, which means they need too much care for a lazy, dirty pirate such as myself

    But yeah, personal taste and looks aside, brass seems better choice - copper button assemblies all the way though

    Use NeverDull on them after they are polished and then use a papertowel to dry it (dont wash off the neverdull). The brass or copper should stay clean for a couple weeks instead of a couple days.

    It might add a further adornment to your already unique rotary tool finish. :) (I'm only half joking)

    :sad: My DPRO is the oldest and most used mod I have - I'm gonna buy another one or two in case I ever do lose this one, because it seems to be invincible otherwise

    For sure!! I love the fact that I don't rly care that I lost it (other than loosing the KTX). 15-20 bucks buys another one. And it's worth the money. Great little mod.

    They dropped to .08-.09 after heating and re-tightening the screws. So they were probably .06-.07 pre-fire. The more I look at these the more unhappy I ma with how they turned out. And I didn't even highlight the ribbon that rolled on 1 of the wraps.

    Full colors ... I may pulse 1 more time to see if the blues come out. But the way it's going the blues will probably be washed out.

    Thank you my dude :D The final stick shot is how it should look throughout. Nice curved corrugated ribbons. Tight, clean, and consistent fusing.
    3 major technical errors that keep this from being one of my all time favorites.
    Fuse tension was way to tight and inconsistent, causing the crimp to collapse and the center twist to poke up a bit.
    I used more of the stick than I wanted trying to decide if I liked skip 2, 3, or 4. So damn near 1/2 a coil is all inconsistent fuse patterns.
    And I had some ribbon rollage that I hid in the pics.

    I believe that sums up my reaction accurately


    I finally succumbed to my chronic wire disease last night while unpacking my tools and spools, and claptoned a staple

    With my hand drill because of course I forgot to pack my Hitachi... And swivel brace Dammit ┻┻︵¯\(ツ)/¯︵┻┻
