    On something your not familiar with ,
    The Majority of YouTubers are sales men.
    Slowy slowy just dont jump in head first
    People are not saying this to be dicks
    There saying it because bad things can happen and much faster that you'd think

    Most on here been vaping building a long time
    many years experience / advice/ knowledge/

    Good to hear you got it.As for the mesh,the others i haven't tried,but i know a few people who like those better,they are lower resistance,i think like .13 ohms or something.The only other mesh i tried was some Vandy vape SS mesh that i had to cut to size,i used it for about a day,then went back to the Wotofo mesh because i liked it better.

    So looking at this its not the usual bright and multi coloured blanks
    it more of a camo type blank
    whats thoughts do you think would make a nice dna 60 mod, or not ? For some small unusual little mod for 22mm RTA,

    Surprised you need that much. Ive never used mesh as a heating element myself but all the reviews I've watched recommend 40-50. Whatever floats your boat, fella!

    Right when I got my profile I took the spring out and stretched it a bit to make it more stiff. but lots of good advice here. I've never had a dry /burning hit with my profile @ 55 - 60 watts with wotofo mesh.

    The only thing not making me die of agony on that is the fact I wasn't overly impressed with 75DNAc - those prices are almost too good to be true though

    I really hope that's not a do or die situation, seriously. Take a step back, let some videos and some advice sink in and then go back to the drawing board. Mesh can be one hell of a lot more problematic than regular coils. My personal attitude with mesh coils is....when you think you have too much wick, add some more. I may have been among the first ones in this thread to try the first mesh rda to come on the market. I don't use it anymore because it takes a LOT of juice to keep the wick adequately moist and in general it needs lots of airflow (a thing I don't enjoy) otherwise things get hot quick!

    If you want to get a better idea of what that block will look like when finished (polished or whatever) swipe a bit of water or mineral oil on it.

    Since I don't want to redact or edit my above posts and they are a bit out of sink, I'll just say that I've been sicker that a a dog for the last week so I've been a bit out of touch. Just to give you an idea of how sick, dying would have been an improvement.

    Alright, many questions were given answers in all of this discussion regarding using mesh. Not ever claimed to be the brightest crayon in any box here. Something I learned when little though has stuck with me. When I was a little boy I hung out with the grandmas, paps, and old Joe what was in this war or that with a pap or paw paw, or that Mary from up the way that took in laundry back when it was rough for everybody. The old folk would get together and start telling stories. Well, my Pap told me he liked how I listened and said it was a good way to learn. So that's been with me for a lifetime or so, being an old soul you realize you get a few lifetimes in one life if you work life right.

    I wondered about trying mesh for myself. Now, I don't wonder about it. Some times it is good a person can realize their limitations. Mine is a lack of patience with myself. From the discussion it seems there was a bit of putting the cart before the horses. Can admit I would probably try the same way. "Let me get this going, right now," I can imagine myself exclaiming. Then, it also looks like using mesh requires a lot more investment of juice, time, effort, all around in general hassle. Ultimately, I'll not wonder because I've decided to not bother with it. Doesn't seem a thing worth my attention when I can use a simple bit of Kanthal wound up on a single coil deck.

    I can blow a few or more clouds at times squonking with my set ups. Not going to tell you I win cloud competitions. Never competed, never saw a need to it. Still I can fog up a standard size room once in a while. Also get a potent bit of flavor, that is when I add flavor to my base juice. I also don't go through a lot of juice which can be helpful on a budget. I may roughly use around 4 mL/day of juice. Not really seen how long a coil can be used here, not yet anyway. Been well I say busy but truth is playing around and discovering good, solid builds, swapping this coil for that one and then another and so on. *chuckles* Reckon I'll be figuring out how long one can go next.

    No, I ain't trying to shame ya, or tell ya how to do or such. I'm just relating what I do. I'm sure all the standard disclaimers apply, such as void for legal or medical advice, your mileage may vary, there's always more than one way to skin a cat and so on. We're here in the bonkers squonk asylum. Makes me sad seeing folks talk about needing other kinds of gear. I'll overlook it once, after that you might not like me. I don't like being sad or nasty. As Smoky the bear admonishes, "only you can prevent forest fires."

    Ah hell, after 2 AM here. Enough medicine in me to tranquilize a raging bull elephant. Ugh, yep I must be getting old, I feel the medicine. Well, reckon I better, ...

    Just my opinion,but i think mesh is well worth the trial and error to get it going right.I have probably 50 or so non mesh rda's that some were ok,some were shit,and a few that are great,but after getting my first profile and getting it set up correctly,none of my other rda's matter any more haha.That first draw off of a properly wicked mesh coil got me hooked,now i have 7 profiles,with 3 more on the way,that way i have plenty of mods set up with them and ready to go.I haven't used any of my regular rda's in several months now.

    That's part of why I love vaping. It's very perspective. I see allot of people loving mesh tanks and stoppers. I, myself can't bring myself to get one. I'm a traditionalist. I just love an rdawith a set of good, old fashioned coils. Mesh just doesn't fell right to me. I am atm using a pair of series build fused claptons in my Bonza and I love it. But many people love mesh and that's ok. We vape how we love to vape and we share what we are vaping for others to see and/or try themselves. Vape on brother and we can discuss this whole mesh thing some time. Maybe I'll understand this whole mesh craze thing one day :)

    Not a thing wrong in that either, if it is what you enjoy, I'm happy with and for you. :)

    Could not be in more agreement with this & the statement below. Perhaps, I may yet am ignorant of how it would be possible. If I'm ignorant on that I apologize, will aim to bettering myself.

    Exactly & I'm not going to go out brandishing a fully automatic gun, sword, Abram's tank, Harrier jet loaded with nuclear weapons demanding everyone use the same exact gear & build I use. *chuckles* No, not my idea of fun at all. I like an expression my acid queen mother would spout at times. "We live our lives best we can and let others do the same, we live and let live," she would tell us. Of course, I also saw my mother get a wild look in her eyes like a rabid honey badger when she felt someone was in the wrong to the point they were "treading on us". She raised us three boys mostly on her own, my stepdad being a long haul otr driver. No way she took any guff. :) To this day I still fear thinking a b word, and her in the same thought, fearing she'll hit me with a hay-maker out of the blue, a boy never calls his mom that, never. My mom loves me, I know because I lived. :)

    Which are best ones
    mod dog
    Or mod makers ?
    Or both in general ?

    I have some mod makers 510s already in uses and spare. Just not picked up the cupped ring for them
    But i have Not got/ tried the new nano version yet?

    I would like at least one manual adjustable 510, to try with it being better contac

    Mod dog also has own bottle system to use with its nano 510s slot in out design

    Where MM 510 can use metal feed tube
    For easy slide in out using on a couple mods now,

    Used varitube in past for the old RX dna 200 conversion 510 swaps but also looking for option of 510 being cupped for counter sinking and protecting mod sides over time,

    Ok, so 2019 is the year that I started going bonkers for squonkers. Most of you probably have tried all sorts of BF devices. Remember when you had three and it was exciting? That's where I'm at. I will have way more than this by 2020 but here's what I'm working with.

    I'm just now getting into RDAs as well. Maybe I've mentioned it. I have my eyes on a bunch. I'm still trying to decide what kind of drip tips I like. Do you guys know where I can get an assortment for fairly cheap? I'm not tryin to spend twenty bucks on flashy drip tip.
