    That's what I thought as well, it looked like that was going to be an issue when I started burning it in. But after dry firing it a couple of times it started just glowing from the center of each individual coils.
    It seemed like a winner at first (maybe it was all in my head) but after vaping on it for a bit it's not that hot. It doesn't seem to produce that much flavor.
    I'm going to experiment with coil spacing and some other things and see if I can get it there.

    Wicked a Nano and the Zeus. Tracked orders and opened a ticket at FT about that Zeus. Got my Therion 133 back on track and happily vaping away.:D

    Coiled and wicked the Pulse 22 that came in vape mail. Put it on the Pulse squonk mod. Great combo. Almost like they were made for one another. Semi retired the dead rabbit for now. For some reason it making me cough like a fiend no matter the coils or on a regulated mod or mech. Can’t figure it out so it’s put up

    Waiting on a super sweet order my buddy sent me. Hopefully it's arrival is today. I hate the post office and FedEx.. I only love them when there really

    Last night I twisted another hive variation. Hive wire is just so hard to work with. Thinking the only way to make and Mount good hive wire is with a blow torch.

    My girlfriend made it out of ICU pretty stoked that the judge reinstated her to her program she gets out next week. We both have the same sober date pretty cool. It's rare a couple gets sober the same day. It usually takes one or the other a little longer.

    Waiting on my SS wire, they fucked my order up it was supposed to be 100ft SS, they sent 30. Ugh. I hate ordering and using USPS I wish there were good b&Ms around here. It's irritating

    My husband's sobriety date is one week after mine, because we still had a 12pk in the fridge; he finished it over that week, then he quit too. :D Not because he strongly felt the need, but because he loves me and knew I'd never be able to stay sober if he was drinking around me. He turned 65 today, and I'm 56, and neither of us would have gotten this old if we hadn't quit then. :)

    Mixed up another 120ml of my famous Vanilla Custard.
    Rewicked an atty and made .38 26 ga paralell SS coil for a Wasp.
    Nice slightly warm vape on a Coppervape.
    Think I like it.

    Rewicked 3 RDAs, 4 RTAs and replaced coils in 2 tanks. A LOT of dirty cotton was handled today. Also ultrasonic cleaned a bunch of attys.

    Got the apartment to myself this morning, so, I’ve been able to move my wire prepping for another run into the living room without getting the evil eye from my gf. Squonking some Grape Big League Chew and have some Artery Clogging Waffles in my RR2 RDTA while prepping wire all while being able to watch the new Punisher series on Netflix on the big screen...life is good!

    I am no expert, but I'll post what works for me personally, other people might have a different opinion. So please keep that in mind.

    When it comes to store bought juices or simple diy's, that have a specific flavor already but are very mild or lacking some of the advertised sub nuances, mostly when it comes to custards or cakes and creams, I'll fill 5-15 ml in a separate bottle and put it for 2-6 hours through my ultrasonic cleanser.

    But you can do it with hot water bath too, fill some in a glass bottle or use a plastic bottle you know won't dodge when heated lol. Grab a pot/pan/bowl whatever and heat some water. Do not exceed 140F or your nicotine starts to fade, very noticeable if you do a couple of steep runs that day. Anyways, fill that water into a container, mason jar, bowl or anything you can seal, place your bottles in it and check every 30-45 minutes. If the water cooled down by a lot exchange, rinse and repeat. In some cases that can be sooner than my indicated time above.

    Do that for 2-4 hours and you're set. Everytime you exchange the water, shake your bottle but don't open it. After the last round of the water bath, shake and open, let stand for 5 minutes not longer, then reseal and shake again. Now you can either use it, or put it in a dark place and let it steep more, but if you're planning on doing it via time anyways, then there's no reason to use the quick steep method to begin with lol.

    Things to look out for or to mention:

    If you have time on your hands and not desperately on your last drop of juice, steep it regularly aka dark place and wait 2-8 weeks.
    Do not steep a whole 30/60 or 120 ml bottle of juice via quick steep at once, the result will be not very satisfying.
    Use a bottle that you know won't crack/melt etc.
    Do not soak the bottle tops in water. If you don't have a container small enough put your bottles into water repellent zip lock bags and then place them in the water. Last thing you want is getting your juice mixed with water lol
    This method does not work very well with tobacco flavors or juices that are not potent enough by itself, custards can be tricky as well, especially if you have some multi layered custard, this method is just to bring out flavor profiles already existing in your juice, but not fully developed yet due to the store not pre steeping or made fully fresh etc. If your juice has barely or none flavor, this is not going to fix it, but it helps if you want to test a new juice or diy, or need to see were its at, for you to determent how long it would have to steep via dark place and time.

    I hope it helps or makes somewhat sense lol.

    I rediscovered some of my old Tootle Puffing gear in the back of the cabinet this morning and been playing with them all day. A few Aspire ET clearomisers with BVC coils. An Evod tank and a fistful of old Evod/ego batteries.

    Didn't think I'd ever be able to go back to MTL but I've really been enjoying the Aspires mounted on a pair of ancient SMOK SIDs crankin 10 watts. Gonna go back to vaping these full time for awhile and see how it goes.

    Friend of mine kind of new to vaping but has been doing it on or off for about 6 months and is now down to 2-3 smokes a day is worried about Bill 174 in Ontario (a bill that would decimate the industry here) put in a request... He wants me to mix him... 2 gallons of juice, so we sat down, I crunched the numbers and got him to place the order, he wanted me to mix it all at once but after some convincing I convinced him to only mix a liter at a time and keep the rest of the nic in his freezer.. The amount he vapes 2 liters will last him about 9-10 months I figure..

    Here's the recipes he wants, we've both tried them and they are decent, In the first one I knock the Cap VC v1 down to 8% though because it can become overpowering after a while.

    Can't knock MTL, I have a UD Tidus with 1.8ohm coils I grab it every once and a while with 12mg and it gives a fine vape, don't like it all the time but it's decent.

    Cleaned the csmnt and just for giggles and shits wound a pair of 4mm coils from spooled quad core fused clapton wire from AVS I'd picked up on Black Friday. First time with any coil over 3mm. The vapor is quite a bit thicker then with the same coil at 3mm. Still won't win any cloud contests but I think my wife may be a bit annoyed at the light reduction in the house. :D

    May not be much to most of you but I'm pretty damn pleased with myself.
    I made my first Clapton coil today, all from scratch.

    Nice job!!!

    I re-coiled my Achilles today; it's been needing it for a couple days, the flavor really falling off, but I kept procrastinating as usual. Just one of my usual simple coils, this one 8 wraps of 29ga, so the resistance is about 1.8Ω.

    Today I rebuilt an Aspire BVC for my ET clearos for the first time. Was actually pretty easy once I figgered out how to crack it open and saw what I needed to do. Does require a tad bit of fingertip dexterity tho.

    Did a 10 wrap 30awg KA1 on my 5/64 drill bit with some generic organic cotton. Clocked in at 2.3ohm and vapin like a champ.

    I've done a vertical in an Evod coil before, wasn't impressed. Rebuilt a bunch of iCare coils but they were just as trash as the originals. But this Aspire BVC head vapes just like the factory built it. Hope its repeatable!

    Window shopping for a new single coil rda for the new sonar mod that will hopefully be here tomorrow. Stuck between another pulse 22 or the wasp with either clear or black cap.

    I've never tried a wasp but I have 2 Pulse 22s, should be 3 but my package that was supposed to be here Saturday never arrived. :(
    In my opinion it is the perfect RDA for a Squonker. I have one on both of my Therions and tried one on my Capo...
    That's why I ordered a black one.

    Oh yeah I've got a pulse 22 on my Inbox. Just trying to figure out if I want another one or the wasp that less than half price. I'll probably get both. It's a blue woodgrain mod so trying to keep it matchy.

    Yes, I want to try a wasp as well.
    I also want to try a Pulse 24, it looks like you could easily build a single coil in it I just question whether it would be as effective as the 22.
    I could care less about the clouds, I'm in it for the flavor and battery life.

    I have both and I know it's against the grain but I prefer the Pulse to the Wasp. Maybe I haven't found the right build but flavor is better in the Pulse.

    Got my steam crave aromamizer supreme v2 from the delivery man today. I wasn't expecting that steamcrave already included another 510 ultem drip tip with it besides the black stock tip. I guess they decided to do something with people complaining about the stock tip. I wish every manufacturer has this concern for its customers. Kudos to SteamCrave ,[​IMG]

    Had a maintenance evening yesterday. Cleaned and rewicked a few atties. Took apart a Pico 75 which had an issue with the screen intermittently coming to life by itself and using up the battery overnight. The wiring was all OK so I gave everything an alcohol bath, reassembled it and it's behaving again :). It's a really tough little mod.

    Also ordered another one in black and bronze and a couple of circuit boards. I'm going to be all set with Picos for the rest of my life in a bit :cool:

    My uncle gave me an old Aspire Nautilus Mini he found, I'd never owned one so I rebuilt the coil with 26gauge nichrome (took me about 10 tries to fit it in there)

    He gave me a bag full of stuff, mostly broken Ego tanks, and 6 sample bottles from Vape Wild...3 mg nicotine, which is why "vaping doesnt do it for him" but I told him I quit on 24 an 18mg so mebbe he'll try again someday
