Michael...Is there a way to post a pic from photobucket but make it smaller. I hate taking up the whole page.


Ok here are my go to coil wraps. It's 26 gauge Kanthal twisted, then wrapped 5 times around a 3mm rod or whatever. I get an ohm reading of .27. Great clouds and good flavor.

Nice looking coils there Jerry!

Whatever works for you.

I've not really played with twisted coils, but I have made coils from 18ga wire (Just don't)

WOW 18 gauge. I actually got the idea from Rip Tripper. My coils were just not cutting it. I switched to these and it was a big difference.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I just used thicker and thicker wire.

I can't stand Rips' persona - it is too much like the patients I work with in my day job.

But he does know his stuff and if he'd just take his meds before recording I could bear to watch the guy. He does give a lot of very good information but I just can't take his manic style. I want to get the nurses round with 20mg of droperidol and 8mg of lorazepam in a syringe. Or 5ml of paraldehyde.

Experimenting is good. Especially when you find something that works better for you

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
My job kinda deals with those people as well. I guess for me he is entertaining. I have watched so many videos where people just stare into the camera with their monotone voices.   I have been an instructor for 30 years. I think instructors should instruct, motivate, and entertain. I am sure you have sat in a class room where the instructor works as well as valium. Anyway enough defending Ripp Tripper LOL. He is a bit much.

I've been in classrooms where the instructor had the same effect as an anaesthetic....

Or a lead pipe to the back of the head.

~The really bad bit is sometimes I was that instructor.. Sad

I think for the most part I at least kept my students awake. Caught a few constantly looking at their watches. I would call them on it and say, No need to keep looking at it. No one is going to steal it.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
It's a long time since I was a teacher. Last time was May '86.

But I do get adult students. Usually on a 1:1 basis which is easy.

About once a year I get asked to teach a class full of apprentice hairdressers and mechanics (2-300 of them) about mental health.

They tend to be less than motivated...

I tend to be less than tolerant of them

Bad mixture.

But I will be heard - I can be very loud when I have to.

I teach the Police Academy. Mostly self defense and mixed Martial Arts. These guys are trying to get a job, so I have a captive audience. They wash out..no job.

Motivation is the key!

They want to be there. My victims students don't...
