Made some more Aliens and stripped my Murdered out Viking Grip

The coating peeling irked me enough to attempt a two tone finish.

Didn’t sand the center or firing clip.

When it patinas some is should look interesting





Just noticed how bad TT makes pictures when you upload from your phone

Yeah, it's not too shocking for me. The ego on that person is big-time. I've seen that poster go after people before and they even tried to start meaningless shit with me. No thanks.
That’s what surprised me. They seemed friendly, but that thread put the lie to that. It was un-cool to bait people like that. (Plus, the I’ve got the recipe, but I’m not sharing nonsense.)

Today got out the Naboo tank, fitted a new coil and filled with Citrus candy mix.
Fingers crossed as a while ago I got a some sus coils that dont last and end up leaking. Trouble was before I knew I threw them in with the coils I had and dont know which is which. Nearly ruined the Naboo mod from a massive leak a few months back from it.
Put it on the Tinker just in case. Do like the Naboo Tank though, with good coils in it that is. So far so good and the flavour so far is spot on. :)

Dude on the far left? His mama dressed him this mornin. Just sayin.

Just look at those f"n loafers!

Then his mama has zero taste, because those pants...! :facepalm:

The girl 3rd from the left looks like her pimp dressed her. And the one on the far right is wearing that horrible new style known as "flood pants." GAG!

After being annoyed in general at today, decided I'd focus my ire on building something. =)


Attn @Just Frank

The Griffin RTA. A tough 'ol bugga, I kinda dislike building thin-wire duals especially on cold wet days where my hands don't want to work right, but at the same time, it's a good challenge for the old skills.

Build: https://www.steam-engine.org/coil?mat=ss316l&s=dp&r=0.45&id=2.5
Screenshot of that if needed: https://i.imgur.com/E1v53Qs.jpg

Here we goooo.... going for a dual-coil using 30ga SS316L Temco wire, ID of 2.5mm, 6 wraps for 0.45Ω.




Centered coils, reasonably spaced coils, nice wicking, we're good




I like doing the "high-shoulders" style of wicking here, it acts as a juice buffer and still allows ya to thin the tails to fit. I press in the big part with my fingers to conform to the tank.




Money. I'm running this in wattage 'cuz I don't feel like messing with Joules for SS316L on the IPV4S




Vintage goodness. I'm happier now. =)



Still a damn good vape. :D

*if this doesn't belong in this thread, feel free to move it.
I just don't wanna compete with all the big fancy builds and this seemed relevant to the topic. :)

Made more Aliens today

Also ordered an Ultem Nightmare RDA direct from Suicide Mods... ended up being $12 cheaper than buying stateside.

Sure might take longer, but evcigs and their $15 shipping first class USPS can eat a dick

Happy Birthday!

Awww thanks y'all! Except Gadget! -- who's Andrea? :facepalm: And those kitties really are adorable, @Huckleberried ! All those cakes look fantastic, but the ol man brought home a cheesecake assortment, AND a box of Krispy Kreme donut holes, from sour creme doughnuts -- my favorites!

Just got back from Kohl's... picked up one shirt I ordered last week, and bought 3 others, and miraculously, they all fit! Holy shit! And in a size MEDIUM! Haven't seen that size in, oh, 20 years? Picked up another order yesterday, size large, and it was too damn big! Turning 59 ain't too damn bad, having lost all this weight -- 14 lbs now! Also stopped and picked up Chik-fil-A, since it's my birthday, and the spawn is picking up some onion rings for me at the sports bar where he sometimes works, they have awesome onion rings, and on my birthday, I don't even care about calories, :)

Thanks all y'all! -- but I still wanna know who Andrea is, is it her birthday too??? ;)

It's about vaping, and you did it today... so, it fits! :D Hell, all I did today vaping-related was refill a couple times, and change the battery, and when we got home and I changed my clothes to wear one of my new shirts, I changed to my red minibook instead of the white one. :)

Awesome! I keep it simple when using a Griffin too. You can get great results with round or clapton wire. I've tried chunky aliens and tri-core fused claptons dual coil and it's not for me. I mainly vape 40-60W and I'm pretty happy in that range for everyday use. I go higher wattage but not for all day.

I'm planning on playing with a tank I haven't used in years... Well maybe not that long, but it's been a long time. Got some add-ons and want to check it out.
Good luck. I tried with a Cleito Pro. Second time I went to fill it, I couldn't get juice into the tank without it going all over the place. Flavor wasn't good either. I put it aside and haven't touched it since.

Don't let me jinx you, maybe you can share your experience if you get good results, and I'll give mine another try.

As far as what I did that was vape related, and this actually was yesterday, but I ordered a second Joyetech eVic VTC Mini. I'd recently bought one out of the Hardware thread from @shawn.hoefer and I like it so much I decided I'd try to find a second one.

Wetvapes has them for $19.99. They only have white, but that's ok, because today I ordered a navy blue carbon fiber wrap for it from VaporSkinz at 25% off! Will use either a Crown sub-ohm tank or a Hurricane Jr. RTA on it.

Also ordered a third iJoy Avenger tank to get the purchase over $30. With free shipping at $30, a 15% off code, and $4.80 in rewards credits, this order was cheep cheep cheep!

And, ordered two more Aromamizer V2s from VapeNW while they have them in stock. I'm really loving these!

Cleaned some bottles and other mixing gear ready to make some tomorrow. That should knock over a few hours given how slow I am mixing. :D
My Naboo tank and coil are still giving out good flavour and not leaking a couple of days on so I must have picked one of the goods ones out of the lucky dip to use. :)
Was going through some stuff I forgot about too and came across a Revo tank and its wierdo coils. Might get that going this afternoon for something to do.

Got it going.
Forgot how wierd the coils were.

So up and running on an Espion Tour. Forgot how airy this thing is. Its not bad but aint no vaping experience like a mesh coil. Vape, tip, vape, tip. Gets a bit tedious really. :D
It is different though.

Getting ready for the Coke 600 Nascar race....and trying out the 'disposable' Lumi tank on my Sigelei Swallowtail 75A. Weird thing go together eh? :D

IMG_20200524_145411.jpg

Rinsed it out with some white vinegar and water..much oily smells were down in there. Dried it out much as possible and filled with a weak solution of Caramel Mocha DIY juice. (full strength, that dank juice will gum up about anything short of a Genesis...hehe)

Dat 0.28Ω mesh coil is blasting away at 34W just nicely. :)

How long does a disposable tank last? They seemed a bit expensive at $5, give or take.
