    Pretty interesting development over at the modding forum for all genesis/did owners

    pyrex-ss-hybrid-wick


    Funny how something in the vaping world could cause an effect on an industry that is so far out.

    oh that is sooooo interesting, though I didn't read the whole thing yet. Funny timing too. I was just musing how cool it would be to be able to somehow wind a coil using a SS wick.... but for the obvious problem! A pyrex tube eliminates that problem. Now I just have to wait 'til I'm ready to acquire equipment that would allow me to possibly do something like that. I am intrigued!!!

    Zut alors! This is exactly what I've been looking for. Just the other day when I was trying to get a @#$Q@#%#$ coil working on my DID (and failing miserably) I started thinking about potential dielectric barriers I could put between my mesh and the coil. Turns out someone's already got the answer.

    OR.... He could make a 100 foot wick and invite us all to vape at his place OR...... depending on the prevailing winds being West to East, we could stay at our place and vape!

    Just tell us the time and we will adjust for time zones, daylight savings, and the Jet Stream speed and direction!

    Sound like a plan?

    100 ft wick! That would suck adjusting hot spots :facepalm:

    You'd have to put airholes in regular intervals, and have coils and batts set up all the way along at the airholes.... and better give that wick a DAY or so to draw up fluid before vaping! hahahaha..... then all stand in a row and wait for the flag.... adds a whole new meaning to "serial vapist" hahahaha

    So is it the 3 mm Thin Wall NMR Sample Tube 7" L, 200MHz that we want...just want to make sure, and Cobber, are you requesting USPS? I want to avoid any fees from the other two shipping methods.

    What the hell, ordered as well. 2x 3mm and 1x2.5 (just in case too lazy to drill out the hole as mentioned by scubabatdan)

    Any thoughts on which did clone is better? Canvape or eastsidevapes.

    (therealmac - from the other thread, you mentioned eastside is full tank - any other thoughts?)

    Thanks!

    Damn it!! :) - they moved on to quartz glass (starting at post #333)

    I swear I was just there catching up, opened another tab to order, post here, go back and bam! - the whole world moved on. That thread is moving so fast!

    Oh well, $20 is 3 days worth of analogs. And except for the did clone, I got everything I need on hand (been rebuilding vivi nova heads).

    Good luck to everyone!!

    *rubbing eyes*
    Ok... I just read that WHOLE thread, and my head is spinning, eyes are bleary, and I'm exhausted..... but for all that, I'm still really excited. What a geek eh? Haven't even received my first RBA yet and I'm already getting fired up about ideas like this.

    I really hope I'm not breaking any rules here.... but is there anyone in BC's lower mainland-ish area interested in this? I'm thinking of ordering a 4ft piece or Fused Quartz tubing, 2mmID & 3mmOD, but asking them to cut it into 6 or 12" pieces for ease and economy of shipping. I'll call them tomorrow sometime to inquire. PM me.
