    One of my regular vapes over the last couple of months is a Deadly Sin clone which includes Cinnamon Danish Swirl. Must have vaped over 200 mls of that thing and so far nothing happened to my bottles.

    You're welcome.
    I'm actually working on my 3rd 100 mls. But I haven't tried citrusy flavors I'm afraid.

    I've been fixated on hot cinnamon for a couple of years now & have no damaged bottles.

    A little bit of this happening....
    Using the 32x3 at around .6 and so far I'm liking it very much! very quick ramp-up and cooldown which I love, and even though I usually stay around .4 the flavor I'm getting from these builds is quite good.

    Ah, that's a bottle I recently found...but I only know them available here, from italy...

    The "Supersoft" bottle you can get from Reo should be fine - the top will be RIGHT UP near the 510, just a teensy bit of tube - but it's a nice, proven bottle...I just wanted to try alternatives!

    Rebuilt with the 30x2 and I prefer it over the 32x3 already. It's more workable and acts a bit more similar to the builds I normally use, only with faster up and down time and better flavor.
    The 32x3 would be good for cooler builds, but that's really not my thing. Maybe on something regulated.... but also not my thing lol. *shrugs*

    I know Dale thought I was joking, but the block finished curing last night and I just got in from the shop cleaning it up a bit.
    Doesn't seem like much now, but when it's finished I think it will be a really unique pattern & look....
    I present....

    There were points where I wondered to myself.... "OK what the fuck are you doing.... what's the plan...."
    But it turned out actually quite well. It's a solid brick for sure.

    About 8oz. Of resin total, I may have lost around 2 after pressing but it took an impressive amount.

    I really like the 30/2 - it also works well in on regulated mods

    Versatility is always good, as I still use RTAs a lot when I'm at work

    The 32x3 may be just the thing for tanks. You wanted to try it anyways, yeah?

    Simichrome. Elbow Grease. Renaissance wax. Gray or white Scotch-Brite or Bear-Tex pads may also be called for to restore the "brushed" finish, although I don't mind having them look a bit more polished, especially the copper.

    Have to say that with using a squonker, I blow through more juice than using a tank or dripping

    Did the lighter trick to the fibs and it actually worked. Granted I burned some shit but now it works.
