    Default wicks for the RM2...

    Happy New Years fellow Reonauts,

    I've been reading here about doing wicks in cotton, eckowool, silica. and now ceramic..

    I haven't read anything about using SS mesh. or I don't remember seeing anything about using mesh.


    This morning I made some vanilla e juice and I was think to make a new coil. Got the idea to try a mesh wick.


    got the torch out and rolled and torch up a perfect wick, and build a nice coil with 28 gauge at .8 ohms. inserted the wick and did
    a couple of test squonks. the vape coming of the coils was awesome. screwed down the cover and vaped. To my surprise,
    it was great. thick vaper production and real nice flavor too.

    been vaping for a hour now with the mesh and it's doing great.

    If there are any down sides I can see at this point, it's I can only get two or three hits before having to squonk more juice.
    That's not too bad, with cotton I get 4 hits before needing to wet the wick.

    If things continue to work out with the mesh, one wick and one coil should last a long long time.

    Any others here have tried SS mesh in their RM2's? I guess it wouldn't work in a ERA or a Cyclone?

    Thanks and have a wonderful New Years Day

    will I'm vaping with the mesh and it's working great. probably the best vape cloud and flavor from my RM2 yet.

    I want to try the mesh in my era and cyclone but kinda nervous about it.

    I had to try it just to say I did. I haven't used ss mesh since the aga days. Wrapped up some 30k on a screw, compressed, and inserted an old piece of well seasoned 500. Good vapor, not as "organic" tasting as the cotton.image.jpg

    I keep trying all sorts of wick combinations. SS mesh gives me the flavor mix I prefer. Cotton tastes like cotton tastes until it burns and for me that seems to be often. Ceramic worked well but until I can find one I feel safer about it's out for me. Right now I have a 1/8 coil with a lightly rolled piece of 500 mesh with a dollop of cotton on the ends to help aid wicking since my SS doesn't touch bottom. The cotton ends give an extra hit or two and requires less of a flooding to wet the wick again.

    I might try a hybrid wick when I get home.

    TyCreek.... two things from me to you...

    first, that's a great idea using cotton the way you did with the mesh. I'm going to try resting my coil on cotton to raise it a bit

    second. if you don't stop posting pictures of your copper vein in my threads I am just going to have to order one for my self.

    thanks

    Chuckle... I only have the one REO so far and it happens to be the copper. I usually prefer brushed stainless/aluminum but the other week, when I ordered it, I got all sort of crazy and went colorful. I'm ok with the copper but a woodvil might be nice too...
