M-Vapes do plating. Might be worth asking them. Since you'll use very little gold, it might not be that expensive.

It isn't going to be cheap wire by the time they're done though.

At .3 you could dual it!! 
How much of it did it take to get 6"?

Thanks, mate! I broke the 38ga at about that length, that's why I stopped there lol. I started with maybe a foot of 26gs, probably used about 20 feet of 38, about 6 feet of 32ga, and only a few inches of 24ga since I cut it last. So total, maybe 27.5' or so.

You could electroplate it yourself, but would electroplating wear off when you run a new current through it?

Would juice be an electrolyte?? I can't remember which way the ions flow, but a gold plated post could be a cool outcome if it did go wrong

The components of juice are all very poor conductors so won't work very well as an electrolyte.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Right now I'm vaping my own recipe custard (I think I'll call it "Colonel's Custard," like Colonel Mustard from Clue?) but the important thing is: I got my coils from Mike today! Fused Claptons in my Dark Horse at 0.2 ohms, 70W, and they're AWESOME. The flavor, the clouds, everything is just spectacular. I took some nice pics with my real camera, I figured these deserved better resolution than my phone can provide, so I gotta get my computer out before I can post them.

Here's the close up of these sexy beasts. Thanks, Mike! These are absolutely perfect, the photo doesn't do a good enough job of capturing the subtle blues and oranges they got after heating but it's the best I could do without a macro lens.

Cool! I'm glad they got all the way there without getting squashed. Though something of an anti climax as you've been doing your own since i posted them. 
Nice build up Good you've done them proud!

Thanks mate, it was a bit tight getting them into my Dark Horse but they're in and they're beautiful! 

Definitely not anticlimactic, yours are way better than mine anyway, I havent have the practice yet to build anything that nice. Well done, mate! 

And yeah they made it safe and sound thanks to all that bubble wrap, thanks for taking such good care when sending them Wink
