    First the easy one. zoiDman says: "Not sure if these are the alloys you are using..." YES. Those are the ones.

    And this one. zoiDman says: "Iím familiar with Chromium Oxides. But Iím a little confused when you say ďOxidizeĒ. What exactly are you doing to the SS mesh and why?" I'm not doing anything with SS mesh, at least not in this post. In this post I'm "oxidizing"
  2. Want2Vape RY4, Rock Star, and The Blond Review

    Here's a review of three Want2Vape e-liquids: RY4, Rock Star, and The Blond. The full review and steeping notes are here, while the Cliffs Notes version is below.

    : This is a heavy Western-style RY4, with emphasis on the caramel and tobacco notes. I loved the naturally-extracted tobacco (NET) flavor used in this juice. The tobacco taste is superior to what's found in most Western RY4s.

  3. How I make a SS wick

    by , 08-18-2013 at 05:57 AM
    Using #500 mesh, I roll a SOLID wick:
    • I lightly torch the mesh beforehand, then I use a metal ruler to 'strip' the mesh to start the curl. (Like you'd do for curling a ribbon w/ scissors.)
    • Then I fold about a mm of the outside edge into the center to keep frayed edges away from the coil.
    • I start rolling what's to become the center of the wick. I roll, & I roll, & I roll until it's tight. then I concentrate on rolling the rest of the wick.
    • Once done, I torch the wick

  4. Hard week...

    Wow...I've never been so stressed. This week has had dramatic ups and downs and I'm really having a hard time holding on! So let's not get into my personal life...but I had collage registration this week and I swear every new semester has been harder than the last to get registered for! Then today I spent an eight hour drive with two fussing yelling people who obviously don't need to be in a confined quarters together. All around today was a bad day to get out of bed!

    The vapeing side ...

    Its still relatively airy. Some of the flavor has cooked and tends to crackle and splatter on the filler, it smells strongly of fresh strawberry cheesecake. Cant stop sniffing my drip tip...
