    Hey all, My scales just suddenly died on me the other day, and I'm starting to run out of juice. I want to mix up some no flavor, I usual do 6mg, any ideas on how I could just eye ball it? Maybe say, 4 full droppers from a juice bottle would be 6mg etc

    Might be able to pick up some syringes at a drug store.

    I've looked there, they dont have any, I need to be able to just do it by looking, or I have some 3ml pipettes I guess I could use those, I use 100mg Nic in VG and I need to make a 30ml batch

    The pipettes should do in a pinch. Just do the math once you figure out how much you want to make. 30ml total at 6mg should be 1.8ml of your 100mg Nic solution, or a little more than half of one of your 3ml pipettes.

    I do all my mixing by syringe, it's just more comfortable for me. Pipettes wouldn't be too difficult of a change.

    You can get syringes at Tractor Supply or other feed stores.

    You just want to make 6 mg unflavored juice? It would help if you mentioned some other things about PG/VG, the nic concentration you have, etc... knowing that, mainly the latter, I could suggest a method for eyeballing that would be accurate enough.

    Oh, OK, that would be even easier, I just need a 30ml batch of 6mg 70VG/30PG, doesnt have to be perfect though.

    What concentration is your nic? What size bottles are you making juice in? How much do you want to make?

    If you're not using any flavorings, you're going to want 1.8ml of your 100mg Nic, 19.2ml of your VG, and 9ml of your PG. That will give you a 70VG/30PG mix at 6mg. If you're adding flavors, that adds some math to the equation.

    Really...it would be much easier and a heck of a lot more accurate... if you just paid $1 or so at Tractor Supply for a couple of 3mL or 5mL syringes.

    In a pinch:

    5 ml = about 1 US Teaspoon

    15 ml = about 1 US Tablespoon

    You don't have to suck VG up a pipette. Measure your Nic., PG, and flavor if your using any with the pipette and then top off your 30ml bottle with VG. Easy Peesy. Not real accurate but it will work. You can warm your nic. up in a cup of hot water before using to help out but you are only going to need a ml or two.

    I eyeball my menthol. Done it enough times to have it down by "feel" I guess. I wouldn't know how to give instructions. "Use the Force, Luke".

    Sorry to hear about your loss. You might want to buy two scales this time, so if this happens again, you will be covered. Scales are great if you SnV or mix frequently, then again, I have bought 3-4 doz 1 ml. syringes but only mix 4 -5 times a year.

    Do you have any medicine measuring cups like what comes on the top of children's tylenol, measuring spoons, small measuring cups. I've used all those at one time or another.

    Children's Tylenol cups, eyedroppers and syringes are all I use.
