    Started another attempt at staggered fused clapton. The stagger looks great. We'll see how the fusing goes.

    Nah, a little overhang doesn’t bother me. I’ll take a look at it! Thanks for the input!

    Made some more fused Clapton wire with the Daedalus. Now I have to order more wrap wire. Going for a variety this time. Different gauges and metals to experiment with. Still not comfortable enough with the fused claptons to try a framed staple yet.

    This may be a little overboard for most but I have two Boxers and the battery contact behind the bottle drives me crazy!
    So I took them both apart and put a small piece of heat shrink tubing around the part that shows behind the bottle. To me it's a 100% improvement!

    Rewicked the Kylin, put it back together, and had to pour the juice back. It leaked! I probably need new seals, but where to get them? Anyhow, it went in the box until I can make it stop leaking.

    I realized that these FRAMED STAPLE COIL 316L SS (28*2/.1X.4*6/38G) - 4MM / 6 ,

    are way too big for my spare Kylin RTA. I thought they'd work and tried to squeeze the monsters in there. It came out to .09ohm and I was pushing 135-140w through my G Priv 2. I asked myself, WHY? [rofl]

    So I just took it apart and cleaned it. I'll either put Triple Core Fused coils in there, 3.5mm ID or Quad Core Fused ( 4mm ID). Either way, the ohm reading should be above .18 so I'll be happy.

    So if you're planning on running framed stapled coils in a dual coil RTA, don't.

    Boring evening. Just made some regular old claptons. Waiting on wire to come in so I can start experimenting with different builds.

    I've had one of mine leak twice.

    I LOVE the Kylin. Make sure your wicking is tight enough in the channel but not stuffed down the channel (suffocating the coil, so to speak).

    It looks like there's a lot of cotton in there but I can still see the set screws. Other than that, turn down your JFC.

    Or maybe it's the O-rings, but I still haven't replaced mine.

    So far today..
    Glad to see DHL has shipping info(not picked up) for Creator 75c Black. From AliExpress of all places. Scarey, but apparenty VapeCige has a store there. It was the only Black found that could ship to US.
    Hugo Squeezer from FT will be here tomorrow. I always envisioned my 1st squonk mod to be regulated and super special :wait:. I'm pretty sure a regulated is in my future.
    And my preorder Fatality RTA has been shipped from CA yesterday and looks like Monday delivery. You'd think for $20.xx shipping they'd have put some hurry up on it. Fkers. I could have been shut out on this one since I didn't preorder within dates, it sold out before they shipped.

    I contacted inkedatty.com in regards to having replacement seals for the VandyVape Kylin. Then, I contacted Vandyvape via email, in the hopes they can provide replacement seals. I see no reason why a company would neglect to make replacement parts available to consumers.

    Not providing replacement parts is a tradition in the world of vaping.
    I mean if you can buy parts and keep them going it would cut into sales.

    It's also a fast way to get people to refuse to consider purchasing your products ever again. If they sold 3 sets of rings for $9.99 + s&h, they could retain customers. Failing to consider providing replacement parts is a quick way to lose customers.

    I actually found that a few hours ago. No rings.

    I took the time and looked at inkedatty.com, and looked at replacement seals. Then I found an atty that does not use factory coils on their list. I ordered one. If they decide to sell the seals for the Kylin, I won't have to toss it in the trash. Otherwise, F Vandyvape! I won't be purchasing any of their products again. All they did was offer a new deck, but no to the seals.

    If you have an industrial seal and bearing place nearby and the Orings are round ones then you can find replacements.
    Might have to buy 100 of them though ;)
    Take the old Orings in and they can measure them.

    You can also buy Oring sizing gauges not cheap though. typically $40-$70.

    Pretty boring vape day. In fact pretty boring vape couple of months. Only one new vape thingy. Got the dead rabbit sq. Not a bad atty/ Much better than the original, but I like single coil. Cleaned coils and put new wicks in 7 of the 8 vapes in current daily rotation.

    Vaped
    Posted in a few threads - waited for more contestants to post in the Vapor Joe lookalike contest
    Vaped
    Packed a goodie box to send to my favorite cuz while vaping
    Saw my first for rent ad that expressly said "No smoking or vaping" and definitely did not book it because I'm vaping
    Talked to my SIL about quitting smoking with vaping
    Transfered a gallon VG from the OG bottle to an old VG bottle because I didn't notice till today that the box it came in from Amazon was leaking a little

    Thinking about dry burning and rewicking a few rigs

    Temporarily retired my Blitz Intrepid RTA after hubby knocked it on the floor and made it leak. I'm down to my augvape merlin until the new atty comes in.

    Mixed up a few DIY juices. Cleaned and rewicked a couple of DoggyStyles, a Rose V3 and an Aqua V2. Charged a few batteries. Picked up a nice IceCream Sandwich juice from a new local supplier I found today.

    Life is good :)

    Now see. It's shit like this that keeps me getting into trouble. I've been successful at avoiding DIY juice, but flavors like this would be right in my wheelhouse and could be what sends me to the dark side.

    I'm finally doing the DIY thing and I'm loving it. Sucks when something sucks but it's awesome when something turns out good. That SC Kustard is a winner..Yum!

    Cleaned up 4 RDAs and re-wicked them.
    TIP:
    If you want your mech switch to be buttery smooth, go to a gun or knife shop and pick up a bottle of White Lightening. It's a light wax based lubricant and it only takes about one drop.

    Edit: I should have mentioned, it's liquid form until you drip it on and let it work into the necessary places. Then in turns into a very light waxy film.

    I'd be interested to know how you like the Revvo. I'm curious about the coil in it.
