    Not bad for your first time. Staples are hands down my favorite build. It looks like you may have collapsed your cores though. Did you use something to hold your cores when you claptoned it?

    I took 4 strands and folded them in half, put the fold in the swivel, wrapped it with a little bit of 34g to keep em in place, ran my fingers down the edges until they were stacked nicely, then used a bit of masking tape on the drill end.

    You might want to try using a couple paperclips or something along the stack to keep it from collapsing. Also 34g is pretty thick for a staple. You have to use more pressure with 34g than say 40g and that pressure make a it really easy for your cores to collapse. Not trying to dump on your coil, it does look good.

    Yes, but how's the vape. Really nice for a first try, I must say :)

    Will definitely take those things into consideration for the next one, thanks for the pointers.

    Nice dense clouds, brings out the notes of the Churrios I'm vaping on right now. ramp up and cool down isn't too bad, for the amount of metal in there.
