    OK, so I skipped the part where I roll the wick. I got it rolled down too small so had to roll in reverse so to say in order to open it back up again for a loose fit that was not too loose. You can see the sewing needle that I used to hold the wick while I wound the coil.

    I started by washing and drying all the parts and bits. Then heated my SS on the stove. I used the pre-cut SS that came with the AGA.

  3. The Ocelot Method of Carto Filling (a.k.a. The Upside-Down Condom)

    by , 04-19-2013 at 07:42 AM
    (This blog was commissioned by Rocketpunk)

    When I first heard about the “condom method” for filling cartos, I just heard about it, I didn’t see it demonstrated. Since I mostly use flanged cartos, I assumed the top went into the condom. I later learned the bottom goes in (so it won’t work with flanged cartos anyway), but I was already proficient at doing it wrong.

    This was difficult to photograph and makes it look much harder than it is. You can do it in under a minute ...

    Atty's will last two weeks or more with a well made, somewhat balanced VG/PG mix, (20 percent either way), if your mix has a lot of water in it, it won't vape well, (some vendors cut thier cheap VG with distilled water).

    Dark thick caramel juices are touch and go, low voltage and the atty's
  5. Protank Lanyard that Restricts Air and cures Airy Draw at The Same Time

    I needed a way to wear my Protank on a lanyard around my neck that held it upright and balanced so I got my .45 gauge jewelry wire out and ran the wire two short pieces through the air vents and joined them using two cinch beads on either side.

    I noticed right away that my vape was stronger and more flavorful, and much less airy.
