I chose too little.

The manual does say don't fill it completely until you're sure you've got it right.

I didn't pay enough attention to that bit....

Glaz should not leak. Just make sure you see the cotton pressed against the tank. You don't need to stuff it but fill the juice port completely. I get the very occasional leak. Not much at all.

This was more of a flood than a leak. I'll rebuild it in a bit.

There are eleven other devices which behave themselves within arm's reach.

Which is why I've not yet rewicked it.

Today I picked up another MRN RTA. This is a top fill, top airflow 30mm RTA. It is not for beginners. It is tough to wick and build. I built this one at .11 ohms to put on top of my 20700 mech tube. It has three hex screws for air control. You can remove as many as you like to adjust the airflow so it can be quite restricted. I take all of them out and it still is similar to an Aromamizer Plus half opened.

Now after Don's bad result with the Glaz (which I love and works fine for me) I am loathe to recommends this one. If you don't know what you are doing you will get frustrated. When you put the top piece on to check for shorts it acts like it is shorted. It needs the ultem tank to push up the deck to register correctly. I thought I built it wrong and redid the coils to a smaller diameter only to find out that I built it fine, lol. Still, a great RTA for experienced builders.

RE: What did you get today?
I'll get around to adding much more cotton some time soon.

Meanwhile the Galaxies RDTA just keeps on keeping on.

I'm going to miss that one. Probably enough to buy one with my own money.

My 2 wooden drip tips arrived and so did my gold Dead Rabbit. Hopefully my Charon mod will come tomorrow and that will complete my new dripper set up.[Image: smile.gif]

I got a chamfer tool that seemed too small to do the job.

It probably wasn’t. Single flute chamfer tools are low speed devices so to find out I’ll have to wait till I charge up the battery drill.

RE: What did you get today?
And a tapping guide turned up this afternoon - you stick it in the chuck then put the point in the tail end of the tap to keep it straight.

Time to get on some working in Arctic conditions clothing and head to the loft for more metal surgery.
