    sanded the back down with 300, just to remove a bit of mass from the 34, then i polished the top side on a drill with 400, 600, 800, 1k and 2k.

    thanks man :cheers: im pretty happy with how polishing turned out. this was my first time trying to polish anything other than 20 and 22g round wire. dunno if it improves the vape at all but it looks nice for a pic. another new technique in the pile as well :D

    How are you going about polishing them? Before you coil it up?

    i did the back before i coiled it up, by clamping both ends of the whole piece of wire (about ten inches) flat to my desk and hand sanding it with 300 grit. once i got the bumps a little flatter i coiled the whole wire (with the sanded side down) up onto my coil jig (13 wraps i think) and clamp that into the chuck of my drill, with a little piece of bare core wires to hold it steady. then i pinched small strips of increasingly smaller grit sandpaper on it and hit the drill at medium, checking often to make sure i didnt blow through the wraps like chef was talking about.

    Sounds tricky is there a vid anywhere mate to show that process? Or even a guide of some sort

    Would love to give it a try!
