    The 2nd to last build is all 46g fuses? It looks like you used .3R and had 46g on each side as a fuse!

    That’s what I saw at first too lol. I did once try a staple stag with 42g, was attempting to do a pattern of something like 10, skip 3, 10, etc on the hand drill once. My eyes gave up an inch in...or maybe it was my mind. It hurt both lol. I dig it though @Pegleg Meg! You’re always tryin new shit, love it!

    Question vape fam, so I ordered the stacked section for my Dreamer, for shits and gigs. Any good series builds you guys recommend? I normally don’t build that high in ohms, I’m curious if anybody recommends some dope builds that perform well. I may just start simple with some quad core fused clappys and go ham with the wraps I guess lol.

    I wouldn't suggest quad cores... I have some 2 core 28/40 fused Claptons in mine. About 10 wraps?

    Thanks chef! I got the copper one too! I love this mech, such a good mod for the price. I also snagged the ultem button (matchy matchy with my drip tip lol) and drill cleaner attachment. Figured I’d spend the 50$ to get free shipping rather then pay shipping and get less for the same amount. I’ve never built for series before, and I always seem to mess up the calculations on apps. I think I don’t count wraps correctly or something. Always a tad off lol. Appreciate the feedback!

    Maybeee... 3x28 kanthal, 3mm or 3.5mm ID, 7.5 wraps (looks like 8 wraps) = 0.3 to 0.4 ohms?

    do you like n80 better? same specs but with 3x29 or 3x30

    Or 30g frames and 6x.3 ribbon

    I insert my 3 wires into the guides and bend them around the edges of the one I put in the chuck...giving me 2 90 degree bends. Tighten that down int he drill and secure the other end to the swivels. The slit in the guide is dead center and the guide itself is a cylinder. This ensures my cores are centered every time and it takes less than a minute to do.

    Oops, what I meant was what do you do with your decore after stretching to make aliens? :D do you just lay it on the floor, in a pvc pipe, on a plastic mat, etc, because that would be a long decore after stretched, how do you protect it from snagging stuff or twisting up?

    So I've done some practice again and found what I think are the sources of my issue. One was too understretched so the tension I had to apply was bunching up the cores and the other is I really do need a wire holder that holds this 28g tighter than the ones I have.
    Quad 28/38g Aliens. All the the dreded hump I'm trying to avoid.
    20180710_171038.jpg
    Quad 27g done with no issues. The guide holds them snug.
    IMG-20180708-WA0058.jpeg
    These two came out just the way I want...nice and flat.
    20180710_171104.jpg
    The one on the far right is how I want all to turn out while the rest have the hump I hate.

    I lay it out on the floor. The floor I build on is tiled so it's nice and smooth, no snags..the room behind the tiled section is carpeted though. So I stretch into that room and then double back when I lay the wire down...but yes, it is a long stretched decore.

    Sweet ! I like that. I am waiting on a dual tool core holder from usa ohm. Its stuck in customs or lost . Been like a month ! Anyway that's a kool option . So I guess u had to buy the hole unit ? Or do they sell the pieces separately?

    Lightning Vapes used to have it separately but no longer do. You'll most likely have to buy the whole unit(without drill). The V2 wire holders are wide body and have noticeably more play to them. You can fit one gauge larger than stated in them.

    Weirdest ssfc I've ever made for sure, works awesomely though

    3 x.3 ribbon, 26g SS frames, 46g fuse
    IMG_20180710_210552~2.jpg
    IMG_20180710_211006~2.jpg

    0.1 ohms, 70-80 watts

    It's okay! It snapped back in, my favorite coil tool is still in operation :inlove:

I'm moving to new apartment beside my work so that's why i wasn't posting anything, not enough time :zombie:. When i'm done moving need to order some more wires and get back straight to building:bliss:

    My favorite vape is a single coil all N80 Fralien, I needed a new one, so I BUILT it. If the binding is tight, the vape is alright!:banana: IMG_1093.jpg

    So I tried the cutter and I found it really hard to get the wire centered after folding it over itself... any ideas on what I'm doing wrong ??

    The hole may be too small for how thick your core wires are, maybe?

    I think more like the cotter was to thick and made it sit on the outside of the circle

    Looks like it works best if you put your cores into the hole coming from the two chuck teeth side 153135820143516945397.jpg

    If you flip the pin then the wires will be centered :D that is what I mean


    Like this, with the groove of IMG_20180711_203354.jpg the cotter pin resting on the point of one of the chuck teeth, and the wire coming out of the loop on the opposite side (towards where the other two chuck teeth meet)

    Then if you have to you can push the cores towards the center, I think your cotter pins are bigger than mine? Mine is 1 1/2"
