    You definitely have my interest. I love my pro tank but if I can improve the draw that piece would be an all day everyday for me.

    Good to hear about the Evod coil heads. I'll let you guys know how they're working when they arrive (from their slow boat from China).

    Weird about the ProTank. I was showing DaveLog and Sunny the guts of the little ProTank coil head, so popped it apart at the table during lunch. Couldn't get the damn thing back together, so removed the silicone cap so I could see (with Dave shining his light from his tablet, LOL). Well, I FORGOT to put the silicone cap back on.

    Fast forward 5 days... THIS setup (with no cap) has vaped GREAT for 5 days. No cleaning, no wet dog or burned out juice taste. I've done nothing but fill and refill it for 4-1/2 solid days so far (probably 2-3 tank fillings a day).

    Before that, every a day and a half, and I was soaking and dry burning to try to fix the gawdawful taste after a new atty head was put in. I've got 4 or 5 of the attys from before this one that are sitting that need to be pulled apart and soaked/dryburned. Ughhhh

    Watch, I'll jinx it now that I've posted about it. LOL

    Have you tried using one without the silicone cap?

    Ok... plz forgive if wrong place to ask question. I need to order some supplies and currently use discountvapors... they do do have what I am looking for in stock. Has everyone ordered from DesertVapes and Kidney Puncher before and are they a safe online source for ordering hardware supplies? Been hearing in last week... that people have been having cc probs online... Have not received any info on specific vendors. Also, ordering from China quite interesting... but do you have to order 1,000's of one item? Thank you and vape on!

    I have ordered from both Kidney Puncher and Desert Vapes online as well as in person at meets - never had a lick of CC trouble with them. I've ordered online from Desert Vapes over the last couple of years, and Kidney Puncher in the past year.

    I watch my CC account like a hawk because of all the fraud issues of late, but have (knock wood) not had any issues yet.

    Ordering from the manufacturers usually requires a MOQ (minimum order quantity) to get wholesale pricing, and without wholesale pricing the shipping costs and wait times make ordering domestically a lot more reasonable.

    I think ilovenips question about ordering from China meant folks like FastTech and DealExtreme as well as some of the other vendors like BestEcig, HeavenGifts, or EastMall in China that ship to the US and have really good prices. I've ordered from all of them (but only recently from FastTech and don't have my order yet, but they have terrific reviews in the forum). I've never had a problem.

    Regardless where you order, just make sure you're on a secure site when you order from anyone and while not a guarantee, it's always a good idea. You also might want to check with your CC co. to see how they handle internet fraud charges.

    LOL I have only done one so far, but Chris is interested in more. The first class was on genisis style, but I am trying to get a couple of different cirriculae together, so we can offer classes on more popular styles than just the genisis. I'm thinking of doing a silica wick class next. When is the next west valley meet? I can put something simple together for rebuilding evod/protank/vapeonly BCC's. I have a couple of methods that I have tried and worked well. The classes are free, but I accept donations to replenish my personal stock from what I use in the class.

    I'll be in touch with you soon... I'm working on finding a new location in Surprise.

    A class would be FUN and I'm sure there would be no problem covering costs of anything you need. Maybe you could post about what people should buy (wick/wire) and what tools would be helpful (wire cutters, heavy needle, etc.) and that would get people ready for it.

    Are you saying there are better tools than tweezers and nail clippers?

    I prefer 2mm silica wick, and usually 32ga kanthal and 32ga non-resistance wire. All are available on eBay (100ft of wire is like $8 with free shipping). Aside from that, I'd suggest a thick paperclip and a good pair of scissors. I don't torch my wire or wick, but that's personal preference. If you want me to get into mesh, than a torch and a cup of water are required as well.

    I just received a Pro tank from a good friend and she sent me a air flow controller.
    Looks like this one:

    Protanks are an easy build, first one took me 5 minutes. Thats tear down, build to vape. I can show you if serial70 isn't available.

    I also have 2 Octopus RDA on the way (and Nikrothal wire and some wicking), so I'll be doing a little studying. It looks pretty easy, but the thing I'm concerned about is getting everything right as not to damage my mods/batteries. I have a multimeter, but I'm looking for one of those atty ohm meters. NOBODY has them in stock.

    Max, I picked up 2 of those airflow controllers this weekend. Thaaaaaaaaaanks for helping me to melt the credit card. LOL

    Let me know how that air flow control works for ya.

    I somehow showed some restraint and didn't buy that. Just everything else.

    I did put myself on the waiting list at 2 stores for the atty ohm meters too...

    And on a waiting list for an NES controller mod...

    ...and trying to talk myself into waiting until my one year for an epipemod

    I jumped on it now just because I'm sure it will be quite awhile before they're available.

    And I'm sure the list is gonna grow tremendously after people have seen Nicks video.

    Yeah just checked Litt up's facebook.

    The waiting list is 170 deep and he's only turning out 10 to 15 a week.

    He's not taking payment until your mod is ready to ship so thats gonna push payment and delivery out a few months at least.

    Better to get on the list now before he starts using N64 controllers...
