    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:

    IMG_20181021_103202~2.jpg

    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

    They work in temp control correct.... And the material colors blue like stainless And I get (6) pairs for $10 bucks.....

    So for me they are sufficient...... Specially the way I go through coils.... The box is so you can see the dimensions of the wire....... [​IMG]

    That's .13 ohms each. And as unreliable coil builders usually do, or should I say, DON'T, they don't specify SS316L, SS317, SS430, etc. You might rethink from whom you purchase your coils...just trying to help ya. And those are 5.5 wraps. Not 6.

    I'm really curious as to how you're getting 0.13Ω off of 3 coils when they're rated 0.13Ω each.

    I'm thinking they're listed 0.13Ω as a pair, because I'm getting a little over 0.26Ω/pair on SE. But I'm basing that on the length of the coil legs (about 15mm) BEFORE installation. After installation, they're more like 2mm.

    At 2mm, they should be around 0.08Ω for a triple install.

    Yeah, a lot of people put far too much effort into cleaning their coils. I just pull out the wick, dry burn the coil and blow off the residue, re-wick and I'm good. Like I said, one set of coils lasted over 6 months doing only this.

    @MannyScoot I wonder, did you have a different tank, with dual coils, on the Boxer before the Triple, and locked the ohms before you swapped tanks?


    Have you seen the cores color up, or just the 36g alien wrap?

    I just put it on several g classes and in several DNA mods and they all read

    .13

    I saw the entire coil turn blue..... All of it...... And the builder guarantee me it is 100 % SS 316L wire

    Then he lied to you. Or he's using subpar SS316L. You cannot change the physical properties of an alloy without making a separate alloy.
