No way would I tease!

It looks like a nice vape, what sort of wattage are you using it at?

40w. It's not a good performer at the 26w I was used to with the standard coils. I can't really take the standard build up too high because it seems to scorch too quickly, even on the 13 heavens. 40w with this one performs like the 26w, but it's warmer, much better flavor and clouds. Wife tried mine and immediately demanded I build hers the same way now. Hope it's easy to replicate.

So what would happen if I made three strands next time rather than two? I know resistance would be lower but would it alter the vape in any significant way?

You've just turned into me, you do realise that?

If you make 3 strands;
It'll get warmer, get tastier, need more power, beckon you into more elaborate coils, make you a slave to the drill, fill all your draws with spools of wire, make you post every new wire on a forum, suck away all your spare time, that type of thing.. Biggrin

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
In seriousness, the first three are true. 

Three strands is really hard to do consistently on a length of wire, if they're not all aligned perfectly you'll get knots appear here and there. One trick is to do what I did on my last one^ twist two about 1/3 the amount you would normally, then add another strand. So basically twisting one twisted(2 together) and one single strand.

I may have turned into a student-driver-mini-gently, but trust me friend; I have quite a long ways to go to see you, much less stand next to you. And I'm 100% OK with that. The fact that vaping is still so new to me after 7 months is awesome.

Ha, I'm sure I'm not done either. But I like baby steps so I'm going to enjoy this massive upgrade for a while before I dive deeper. It's so smooth and enjoyable here at 40w, and so nice not to worry about dry hitting the thing. I 'swiss rolled' my cotton bacon. It's nowhere near a full Scottish roll but has a bit of rolling and compression to it, Seems to work well for me.

In my kitchen I kinda hashed it, I'm hoping with a little more room in the workshop and better lighting I should have a set of these in tomorrow.
