(OR, "Why I almost decided to just burn down the house")
After reading the "Rebuildable Atomizer Systems" forum area for a week and a half (including a very detailed "step-by-step" post by eHuman), and logging more hours on YouTube than some people work, I settled in at 10 p.m. to leisurely dive into my first RBA.
With steel mesh between my fingers offering delightfully wispy crunches, I imagined the best vape of my life might be had before

Do they break down to crystalline silica dust in our tanks? No, extremely unlikely...
To all those who are worried that the particles they see in their e-juice is crystalline silica dust (e.g. the disappearing wick act)... In order to transform amorphous silica to crystalline silica, it requires hydrothermal conditions 300 to 500 C and incredibly high pressures of 197.38
Note: If at any point your resistance drops and does not allow your APV to fire due to low Ωs, move the coils up or down a little, concentrating on what looks like the tightest ones first and test fire to see if you have solved the problem. Sometimes merely spinning the wick a little in place takes care of it. Make sure you allow the wick to cool before grabbing it!
Note: (This can be performed earlier also )You may slide your wick out to test what your true coil Ω

Rolling a wick, wrapping a coil, and eliminating hot spots with extreme prejudice:
At first many people have understandable issues and varying levels of success or failure/frustration
Here's a Janty MiD Series production unit. This unit has all the MiD modules unlocked from the start. I was told that the final model will have a nicer cosmetic appearance. After I charge the batteries, I'll play around with the mod and follow up with some impressions.
