    Occasionally I use VG or even a touch of Corn Starch to allow the decore to slide smoothly.

    Firstly, for a 2x28 alien, you are making your decore on a 30g core right?

    Secondly, I like to stretch almost to the max so little tension is needed, and make a triangle between my thumb and the inside of my first index knuckle...like this:

    I've had best luck keeping the decore sliding consistently this way


    The nitrile gloves is an idea for like super high gauges, like 50, havent tried them yet though

    Built this tonight... first attempt at anything like this... not as tight as I would like and I goofed the spacing a couple of times, but I'm happy with it for a first attempt... it vapes amazingly well!!

    Twisted 28g framing .5 ribbon x5 and helixed with 38g... would probably helix with a slightly bigger wire next time.

    Ohms at .14 as a single

    Well my third practice on the aliens and they've come out a little better. Just going to keep at it when I'm allowed 5 minutes to myself.....

    I haven't tried aliens yet... I have the Patino's alien makers but so far I've only used them in 3 and 4 core fused claptons (they work really well for this)… aliens are intimidating to me for some reason... lol

    Very nice!
    You'd be surprised just how true this statement is. Once you get the basics down, you'll be able to make aliens with the drill going full speed.

    Many thanks to you all especially @Pegleg Meg for telling me to use a 30g for the decor as it was really easy. My fifth attempt because the dog came in for a nosey on my fourth. They just need straightening out once my nylon pliers eventually arrive.

    Right on! I usually just coil them up if they're twisted, just going carefully and untwisting it as I coil
