    I was asking the infusion nurse the proper way to measure with a syringe, whether the plunger line goes on or above the measurement line. I was asking for DIY.
    It goes on the line.

    Their syringes for the pre-med are nice, but I bet they wouldn't let me have a used one. The flushing syringes are the same type as I get at the farm store.

    Yep, the dreaded Random DIY Gang... on BCF’s most wanted list for repeatedly sucking the stock shelves dry, feared by commercial juice companies for declining sales... don’t want to face them down in a dark alley :evil:

    Looks like they only come with the injectors. But Amazon does have stainless steel tubing. I could probably make one and have a 12" needle so I could get to the bottom of my bottles.

    Mine’s blunt nose o_O. Of course, there’s no telling how long it’s been hanging out in the kitchen drawer. They may have improved them in the last decade or two

    That was easy 1/8" inner diameter minimum. Formerly a chopstick, really how many stainless steel chopsticks did I need? I might cut it down some, the "needle" holds about 7ml of air.

    The gauge 14 handles vg pretty good and I also use it to fill my tanks. The rest of them are really not usable in DIY. Some use the 18 gauge for flavors and it does work on some really thin ones. I have a few and use them to help me get my rayon in place when rewicking a tank.(lol)

    This may be better. Take a look

    Try adding .25% FE Lemon to brighten. It works! FA Lemon Sicily would work as well, but FE doesn't fade.

    I've got a couple like these filled with flavors. Mine aren't Dewalt but they look about the same. They are tall enough to let 30ml bottles stand up. You just can't see the labels. When I get motivated(maybe never) I'm going to make labels of what's in each section. I'm to the point where I really need a third one and am storing some flavors in cardboard boxes.

    I've never had a problem with flavorings and 18ga.
    I use 16ga for filling tanks.

    A very good tip I received from @JCinFLA was to stop fighting the needle when trying to pull up vg or other thick liquids.
    Insert the needle into the bottle of vg and pull the plunger to the desired amount you want and wait. The vg or thick liquid will fill the syringe all by itself...It may take a moment or 3 but it does work.

    :)

    Yep...has always worked like a charm for me...no pulling, no struggling, no frustration = no cussing & throwing things. Just allow the basic science ideas regarding creating a vaccuum and filling a void, to "do their thing". :thumbs:

    I can't look at any website now without thinking of potential diy or vape equipment storage uses :rolleyes:

    Tackle boxes for RTA/RDA bits & pieces
    Makeup boxes/cases for diy flavourings
    And so on and so on ;)

    @FranC, I would make two additional suggestions:
    -- Use a fruit you are familiar with; and has a noticeable/recognizable sweetness to it. This should(?) make it easier to tell the effect (if any) on perceived sweetness.

    -- If you can bring yourself to do it; add one additional tester using the PEG400 as the only carrier (flavor/nic/PEG only). Feel free to keep the sample size small to minimize waste, in case it is too thin, or too harsh.:D
    @Letitia, what is it about the Sugarcane you weren't impressed with? I have a small sample size coming on my jumbo order.

    Thanks, I added those instead and am getting some 2oz bottles I've been wanting along with a 5 pack of the larger ones someone else suggested.

    Simply not a fan of sweeteners in general. If none of my go to usals (pear, meringue, honeysuckle, etc.) aren't working touch of sugar cane helps. I couldn't use the supersweets at all. Haven't tried Sugar Daddy and doubt I will since the sugar cane is working out okay. My cousin loves the sugar cane if I use enough.:lol:
