Mixed up 400 ml of my adv and also about 30 ml of a couple new flavor combinations I'm working on. One is getting close to great, the other one still needs some serious work. Dry burned and rewicked an Aqua V2, a DoggyStyle, a Berserker MTL rda (squonk) and a ETNA rda (squonk).

And of course had a good New Year cuddle with Mrs. Ryedan at midnight :)

Happy New Year everyone!

Fook mi.. Just spent close to $180 on flavorings. Not sure exactly how that came about, but yea. That's insane for me, think I'm done buyin vape shit except maybe nic for all of 2021. And naturally no one place had everything so had to spread it out between wizard labs, bullcity, river supply and diy vapor supply. Bastards. I think river supply was out of most every damn thing. Then realized my total came like $10 shy of free shipping, added a few more things to get it just over $50. Still wanted to charge me $11 something for shipping. Damn shipping insurance for almost a buck was included in the total, didn't count toward free shipping so popped one more item on.

1600ml of flavoring in total and no damn sales. Did manage to get 10% at bcf and some stuff on closeout at river supply. 20% off at wizard labs. I know river supply said they may have a sale at some point maybe this month but the way they were selling the hell out of everything. Not even sure if it was all due to being sold out or if their inventory's just flailing. Even basic stuff like tpa strawberry and strawberry ripe they were out of, had to get that at bcf. 45 flavors. All I gotta say is these recipes better be damn good lol.

I guess it's not bad, just not used to spending like that since I stopped buying commercial juice. Roughly $60 on my adv, the remaining split between 6 recipes is roughly $20/ea. About what it would cost for a bottle or so to try out.

I recently ordered about 2400ml of flavorings myself. I only use one juice though (my wife uses the same with just one flavoring in the mix that is different), so I buy the few flavors I need in bulk. Saves some cash that way though, I ended up paying $145 for the whole order.

That's nice and yea if you can buy in bulk like that makes a huge difference over the long haul. My adv isn't overly expensive and actually uses some of the less expensive. Loranns banana cream, tfa dragon fruit, calls for tfa strawberry but I usually end up mixing cap sweet and tfa strawberry ripe in its place.

These other recipes I'm looking to try use quite a bit of flavourart, flavorah, vapetrain. Those vt flavorings are a pain in the ass to get in the u.s. Started to get from Australia and yowza, not for $30 something shipping. Next option was chef's out of UK until I found the cookies and cream at bcf.

Mostly been vaping largely the same flavor for awhile now, looking to mix it up a bit. Never did try the country clouds cbp but found a clone that's supposed to be close. Same with the boss reserve recipe and dead man's hand no13.

One recipe is one a guy posted and showed up right ahead of xmas I'm excited to try. Really hoping it turns out, it's a recipe for cucidati's flavored juice. An Italian iced cookie with sprinkles filled with fig and other things. Sort of like a fancy fig newton. Growing up my mom and grandmother made them every year. Need to try to make them next year, just requires a lot of work and the ingredients get pretty expensive. A mix of pitted dates, prunes, white figs, raisins, citron or whatever it's called (the candied fruit used in fruitcake), almonds, walnuts, apricot preserves, sherry and karo syrup that makes up the filling. Has to be run through one of those hand crank style meat grinders and then run through again. Not sure a power grinder would do the trick or go slow enough not to bind. Just a ton of prep work, takes hours to make the suckers. Used to take all day since they'd make several dozen, the recipe they used was for every 12 dozen. Cool thing was though once made where a fig newton is open on the ends these get an icing glaze that completely covers and seals the filling on the ends. They last for months in like a tupperware type container. I mean of all the various recipes, hell I still can't find a solid cotton candy recipe, to find one pop up random and yet nostalgic.

Decided it was time to attempt to clean the coil in my Revvo Boost Arc tank,. :)
It came with my Feedlink sqounkers, so with the installed coils plus spares, I have four of these coil heads.

This tank:



They run like $9 for a three pack of heads, so I'd hoped to be able to clean them and basically re-use them for years. It's just a simple metal disc stuffed with what looks just like the aquarium foam from the old days of rebuilding cartomizers. 😄

Been using this for a couple months now on my Coppervape squonk and I really like it.

Removed the coil, which is dead simple, then this is what I saw:



Not bad at all, just some juice fried onto the metal, but hardly gunked up. These are sturdy too, not like the flimsy Notch coils.

I rinsed the disc well with warm water, then gave it a shot of 50/50 white vinegar and water and let it sit a minute. Scrubbed it gently with a circular motion using the greenie side of one of those sponges that has both. Took a minute to do and voila...good at new. :D





I'm happy. :)

Took advantage of Freeman's sale of $8.00 for 120ml, ordered 3 bottles. Two of them are flavors I've had before and liked (Vice Cream and Ruth's Loot), and the third is Minty Cocoa or something like that. I need to do some mixing but lately I just haven't wanted to mess with it.

Waiting on what I think might be the last vape gear I'll order - an order from MyVPro for an Aromamizer Supreme V3, an Asvape Zeta, and some cotton; and a Vaperz Cloud order for a second Odin 100W. Seems like I ordered some batteries from somewhere, too. Oh, and a fireproof Lipo battery container to organize these batteries in. I'm taking the batteries out of all my mods except two or three at a time, so I don't have a damn bomb sitting on the table right next to me. Someone posted something the other day that got me to thinking - if the batteries in one of these mods were to vent, it could cause problems with all of them, and then I'd be a goner and the house would burn down.

The thing that bums me out about that is that it's going to change the way I vape - a lot. I don't necessarily like to vape one rig for hours at a time. Some days I use as many as a dozen different ones at different times during the day. But it's sort of inevitable that at some point in time I WILL have a battery problem again, and it could just as easily be when I'm not even in here, or when I'm sitting here asleep. It's just not safe. The trade-off isn't even worth thinking about. It's just silly.

I know what you mean about not wanting to mess with it. When my flavors come in and I have more to mix my adv with, something I know I'll make a bigger batch of, gonna test out that milk frother thing I got for xmas and see how it works. Hopefully with success and something to report back on. Granted it won't do mondo batches, not sure how much you typically mix at a time. I know some larger magnetic stirrers or those whatever they're called, like a paint mixing platform (shaker table type, industrial) are good for larger amounts.

Pretty sure it'll do 300ml at a time, there's two modes. One spins a frothing disc with like a whisk wheel for frothing milk (don't need my juice frothed), the other is what seems promising. A mode for heating milk (or in my case ejuice) with a small paddle instead of a whisk. The vg may be a little thick but I'm thinking the heated mode will thin it out some and the paddle will create a vortex similar to a magnetic stir bar. Even if the vg is a bit thick for it might be better. Less splashing around and more of a slower mix, less air into the juice. Or who knows maybe it'll make a giant damn mess. I'll be the guinea pig. lol. It only heats to 140F so won't 'cook' the juice. Not looking at the heat function for heat steeping, just to thin the vg some. May make mixing easier. There's bigger ones that'll do 500ml at a time.

Tracked my shipment of mods from Artisan vapor. Stupid damn usps. Everything moved pretty quick from Texas to Mo. Been dicking around stl since Dec 31. The last 2 days it keeps updating the date saying it left stl, the next stop should be a town just south of me then out for delivery. No no, it completely passed me and went 90mi south of me. So now it has to ship 90mi to get back to me, it was only 50-60mi from me to begin with the other direction. Apparently santa didn't bring usps a damn gps this year either.

I have always wanted to get an RCM SHRTGN Mod, I sold a mod recently and took one as partial trade. It was missing some paint but the deal worked out so that if I liked it I could afford to get it coated.
Well I got it today and all the paint that was missing was on the high spots so I took it out in my garage and went to work on it.

I don't think I'm gonna get it coated and it's an awesome mod!

Packed up my last pif package today. Just gotta wait til I get paid or that damn stimi hits so I can ship it. Vg/pg. Nicotine will be packed before actual shipping. Random rdas I had left and a few mods that didn't sell or I didn't out up.
Gonna be a big box. May have to ship two.

Anyone know the best way to ship liquids? Gallon of vg plus an extra liter. Then also a liter of pg. I'm pretty sure it's Ok to ship that as long as it's sealed and all. Guess just tell them so they can mark the box properly? They're unopened still in the zip locked bag from LNW. Any ideas would be great.

@f1r3b1rd it's comin buddy. Really hoping to let the usps fuckery finish up if possible. Don't really want all this to get in the hands of "THE KIDS" ha ha ha.

You should only have to tell USPS that the package contains bottles of liquid. They will mark it accordingly. I have always taped up the lids with electrical tape to try to help keep them from leaking, if they are not sealed with shrink wrap already.

Awesome thanks a bunch. I figured they could handle it correctly. I've shipped juice before unknown to them. Super taped and boxed so no one could feel the bottles. Gallons are a little more difficult. Thanks again

When it comes to liquids, I am pretty sure they just mark them fragile so they have less chance of busting the containers and causing a leak.

Cleaned some bottles so I can mix juice. Ordered a bunch of flavors from bull city, asking with some pg from mfs. All should be here Monday as long as the usps doesn't shit the bed on me...

Been looking for a nice, authentic, higher end mech tube, 2x700, not aluminum, with constant contact switch for around $100 or so.... Not having any luck... Guess I'm too picky, too cheap, or too out of the loop to know where to look...

Have you tried rangevapes.com or vapeology.eu? Vapeology has the 28mm Vindicator with the cc switch included for $149, and there's a code on the site for 20% off.

Thx to @Just Frank posting of the Griffin dealz, I got and built one of my new Griffin 25s...love this thing.

I made a weird but very satisfying single coil build of twisted 32awg K1 wire I'd made awhile back, 3mm ID.
Yeah, I fixed that slight wicking gap after taking the pic. Camera sees better than I do. 🤓







Not a drop lost...my Smok TF-RTA-G2 has been sent to the stash. ;)
I did have to trim the silicone on the plug a bit to make it fit though on the other side, not a biggle.

Also made 75ml of my Peachy Tobaccy juice. Nomz.

Mine came with two plugs, one pre-installed. I couldn't pull it out in one piece. The ceramic part slid off. I looked at it and forgot that the ring for wicking unscrews. I unscrewed it so the silicon part could come out more easily. I'm using one right mow in single coil mode too. Vapes really nice. I never tried single coil in the Griffin 25. It's an underrated experience, and better than people would think.

Yeah the plug isn't like some, it's two pieces. The ceramic is super fragile though.
I'd taken the installed one out to clean it all and then put it back in the other side and it didnt' fit, so I fixed it..hehehe.

Thanks, I have to change out my spinners on my anchor point though, I was having a little more twist in the wire than I normally do.
Check out the spin Lt from this place. Had mine for 3 or 4 years. Sold to @Pastorfuzz during my liquidation sales. Not sure if he's used it yet but maybe he can recommend it too. Great bearings in them. Just used a fishing swivel with hook on the ring and run that mofo wide open.

Thanks, I will check them out.

Right now I have two boards screwed together to form an "L" shape and clamped it down to my work bench. I screwed a fidget spinner to that, just high enough for one arm to be above the wood. I ran a pin through the bearing on that arm and attached 2 fishing spinners to that. My problem is one of those spinners is hanging up, probably got some dirt or something in it. Just gotta swap it out.

Set up my Druga RTA today. The thing really does give some great flavor. It reminds me of the Serpent SMM and Taifun GT4 sort of. The airflow is a bit tight-ish. I can't go over 45W with the build I threw in there. It gets way too warm.. It's an N80 3x28/38 5 wraps, 3mm ID alien coil.

It's a dinky little cheap tank but performs well. Any less airflow and I probably wouldn't like it.

I recently tried some of my Puff brand organic cotton. It's been a long time since I've used those pads. I immediately noticed the flavor was much cleaner.

I've tried bleached cotton on accident before. I can detect it in a lot of my pouch cotton now. It's not nearly as bad as the un cleaned or un-treated bleached pads I used but I can detect it. It goes away pretty quickly as well. I was just surprised at the flavor my regular old pads gave me. I started on pads but switched to other cotton brands. I used to not even peel the edges. Now I do though but I don't roll up or anything. I cut a width, roll just the end to slide through the coil, and then actually slide it in place. Easy peasy or however it's spelled.

I still need to do more research on the different brands and versions I have.. I want to try some other pads now too. I'm not even sure what kind Puff brand is. I hear about Kendo or kogendo or Muji. I've read Muji mentioned a lot. I looked on Muji's site and it's like two bucks a pack. It appears to be a pretty good amount too. I ordered 4 packs so I shouldn't have to order that again 😁 . Maybe I can include some with the coils I send to people.
