    Default Ego T silica rope wick supplier

    Has anyone started to put together a list of known silica rope wick vendors and details on what exactly to order?
    I need to do some re-wicking and if there a thread I am missing, would love to see it.

    I'd really like to find a vendor locally but will to order online too.

    Currently, I know someone suggested this.(below)... but a little clueless on best size and etc to get.
    McMaster-Carr

    Are there others suppliers out there that folks are using?

    Really wish I could just buy a bunch of wicks by themselves.. Some tell ego to start selling them!

    Thanks

    I ordered the 3/8" square braid from McMaster Carr and got three feet of it to make sure I never run out. I've modified both my atty's and they both perform perfectly! I get tons of vapor and flavor now and am quite happy with the eGoT system. I followed Simple CJ's method to modify the wick and have had no problems. I couldn't find the specific tea bags he mentioned but found some that were similar. They work fine.

    Best of luck with your modifications!

    Thanks for the advice here - I have been using the zippo thread and getting a little spicy taste on it and want to try the Sillca.

    Anyone buy from any local (in-town USA) vendors?

    Just curious..

    Thanks

    if you go to a home supply store you can go to where they sell the wood stoves, and ask them for a gasket for a wood stove, they are made out of fiber glass silica, and for about 7.25 you will get enough silica wick to redo your wicking for about ten thousand years, ha ha anyway thats what i did and it works great

    I got 1 foot of the 3/8 inch braided (8828K72). Shipping cost more than the product for a total of about $6 I think.
    Once you get it simply unbraid what you need and make a wick

    Note: edit, silica part number

    Yeah I just got my rope and made a wick today and it's working great....
    I was using the zippo wick and this rope is way better...

    I just hate the labor park, I would rather just buy them from a supplier..

    Thanks

    The silica rope really moves the juice! I couldn't ask for more from either of my eGo's - Well, I could try to get them to mix the juice for me but that would be asking too much I guess.

    Nothing vapes better than a home brew juice tanked in a modified eGo!

    IF you do not like the fuss and still use the eg-t try the ego-c cone and atty, you get 5 atty's for 25-30 bucks.
