It wasn't fun when the Prometheus set fire to the almost dry wicks......... Don make sure this thing is wicking properly before doing a long lung hit......

I'm liking the whirlwind coils, they seem to work well and don't dry the cotton clouds out too quick either.

Sounds like a good plan. Inhaling burning VG wouldn't be at all fun.

Best to use unbleached organic cotton wool, but yes normal cotton wool. If it isn't the unbleached stuff, give it a good boiling before use.

@BOB, Wilko Organic or ASDA Little Angels both about £2 for a big bag, prefer the Wilko as ASDA are a bit thicker like double ply, just find Wilko easier to tease.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I've been loving the 3D so I thought I'd share my current setup with it. I'm using my usual 28 gauge wire. 6wraps on a 1/16 drill bit and cotton. I'm having the best luck with just the single coil. I take the coil and bring it up toward the top of the topper and only leave one side of the wick long enough to reach the juice. The wick sits over top of the juice hole.

 I don't actually use a syringe or anything like that to get the juice into the chamber. I simply drop it in the upper champer and squanch it down a couple times and it fills nicely that way. I do it a few times and then it's full.

I was having trouble with it flooding before but now with the coil lifted up and only one wick down it's perfect. Also I'm using the largest airhole and that hole is basically right next to the coil.

If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?

Nice looking setup there.. 1/16th is about 1.6mm I normally do 4 wraps around 2mm which is usually about 0.9 on 28 gauge. What does it measure in at once it's settled brad ?

went up to my mates last night to have another play with the podiac tns genny the wick holes are around 5 or 6mm so he got some voodoo wick (its has a hole running through the middle) and rolled a mesh straw through the middle

it sucks up the juice really well dropped it to 0.8 ohms and opened the air hole up and its vaping like a trooper

[Image: wick.jpg]

its really thick vape with lots of flavour
going to drop it to 0.5 next week when I go up
the vape isn't warm at 0.8
