    I beg to differ - those are fantastic! I can make 3 core aliens all day long, but STILL can't make a 3 core fused Claptons to save my life. Just can't seem to keep the cores from bunching up for some reason.

    Meg put up a video somewhere (I THINK it was in this thread?!?) showing someone's (don't remember who) technique for multi-round-core builds. It's the only way I do it now. As a matter of fact my cotter pin hardly ever comes out of my drill. Just some 18g galvanized steel I bent to shape. I use it for almost everything. Even for stagging ribbon stacks, and big ol fat builds where I just float the ribbon and use whatever round cores there are to attach to the pin. Every once in a while I'll pull it to clean off the clippings that cling to it lol

    Well I tried lol. Was supposed to be a hedgehog ... But even with goggles I couldn't see well enough to find the right stretch. Para-40g is bulky and springy from a 35g decore. Finding aliens from micro decores isn't to bad. But getting peaked variations is hard af!
    40g interlock over 6 ply .3/28 cores

    cthulhu 1928 came in today. 27 n80 freestyle pbusardo style mtl build (just made it wide enough to cover the deck, didnt count wraps or use steam-engine). came to .9 ohms. the rda seems very nice. the air ranges from a tight (but not too tight) mtl on the smallest hole, to just a little too loose for me on the largest one. largest hole might be a good restricted lung hit for someone who likes that. dat drip tip doe lol

    single shot, not stacked, light edit to the curves and saturation...

    Well I can do bigger hedgehogs, like decoreing from 30g or lower. And I probably should not have done interlocks ... would have made it much more manageable.

    aaawww Didn't mean to steal your thunder :(

    How ironic! I was digging through my graveyard and ran across my old Aromamizer Supreme (the old one) and wondered if it would work on a tube and chose the same type of build...26/36N80 in parallel with a single strand of 26ga N80
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Fits flush on my old Broadside and no leaks and still vapes like a champ...who’d’ve thunk it.

    I always liked staging with bare wire. It reminds me of when I started building coils and even twisting it was something new and exciting heh

    I can't figure out how to get enough light to the face of my subject when doing super tight macro. My phone has to be so damn close ...

    Dont shine it directly on your subject, put your subject directly next to a piece of paper and have the light reflect off the paper onto your subject. This will also decrease the hot spots of lighting and make more detail stand out.

    Yah I use white printer paper to defuse. I just can't figure out how to get light into that tight space between the macro lens and the wire so you can see into it, reference my last picture. I even made a lightbox, and use multiple 75w daylight bulbs, hoping that would help. But the shadows inside still linger.

    Tried a corrugated tonight. I’ve made on once before but this one is waaay better. Really wanted enough for a dual but I kept collapsing ribbon.

    I was gonna fuse that coil with 36g SS, but it kept pulling the stick apart. I tried fusing with 40g Kd and it fixed that problem. These stagger builds make 36g feel huge.. I wish master of clouds sold 40g wholesale

    if you have any kind of magnifying lens/loupe, just press your phones camera hole against the center of the lens. the phone can autofocus through it fine, as long as you are not too close. i had a little folding one that was nothing special, and it let me get a couple inches closer to the subject of the photo and stay in focus. then i would just crop out the atomizer and coils and it would make for an ok pic.
    nice work. i still need to get my hands on the corrugation tool and try that out. i particularly like the third, installed coil shot. you skipped two fuses in the perfect fucking spot and it looks like the coil is frowning at us

    Awesome! That’s the kind of build I’m trying to practice towards, I love asymmetric staggers. Really cool man! Get a magnifying glass or something though! Lol. I think we should have a fundraiser so everyone can get a clip on macro for their phones!

    Thanks @mach1ne!!! Thanks @chrisakasparky!!! It’s not a mind blowing build but it’s a little bit of an accomplishment for me because I tend to lean more towards the alien variations then staggered variations but I’m trying to get better and ya know it’s one build at a time, just inching out outside the comfort zone. I appreciate you guys! Btw Chris your corrugated build is awesome!!

    Right there with ya, I’m always doing aliens, sometimes braiding, and hardly ever staggering. But I’ve watch a few good videos and have had my ears open for advice so I’m ready to push it in a new direction.

    Well your corrugated build looks great to me, you pull off some really really sweet builds. You’re a guy who really made me notice your improvement from when I first started posting on this forum to now!:popcorn: Btw I used 38g and .5 ribbon. Looked like it was gonna get wonky on me at a certain point. Thank God for nylon pliers.

    Yah 36 is pretty beefy for for stagger fusing with any ribbon involved. It puts a ton of tension on the cores and causes the ribbon to want to split and/or roll. I found that 38 was the sweet spot for me when learning to stagger fuse. It was big enough to not feel like you don't have control of it, but small enough that it wasn't pulling my cores apart all the time.

    Ok, I've been staring at this for a couple minutes now. Even though I can't do it myself, I can usually at least figure out how somebody else did it. Not with this one.

    Except that both decores must have been fed at the same time. Do you sort of twist it together beforehand or something?

    You do a parallel Clapton like with a stagger. But leave both Clapton wires on for your parallel decore. Then stretch and alien as usual. With quite a bit more tension I might add. And slow and easy does it. Then voila! Interlocking Aliens!

    AHA! I wouldn't have thought of that. :D

    They stay together like that when you stretch them? Apparently so because there it is, but in my head it seems like the two decores wouldn't stay consistent while stretching them. Or actually after their stretched. Like they'd separate.

    They stay together. I just stretch carefully and feed slowly while I'm spinning them.

    Made some fraliens today. Couldn’t get them to glow evenly so I kinda roasted them.. But they’re good enough for a few days
    10x.12R, 2x28g, 36g (22g decore) all ss316l, 0.064 ohms
    Edit: running regulated at 120 watts. Wouldn’t dare put this build on a single cell mech.
