RE: What have you got on order ?
Another thing with the 26g, it stands up better to the shearing effects of the grub screws in the IM. Often I'd end up cutting of a leg on a new coil install (and as if it isn't irritating enough, it was usually the last leg of the last coil, naturally). I would always have to be careful and usually tighten it again every cotton change, but I can snug down the 26. Another helpful thing.

I had a problem from time to time with the ''cutting ability'' of some grub screws when I used 30g or sometimes not able to tighten properly on the finer wire - that was why I changed to 28g.

I believe current production Muji isn't as good as the older stuff, the stuff Fatboy linked to is as good as Muji used to be. And is cheaper though it takes a little while to arrive from Japan. But unlike China Post, Japan Post do get stuff onto planes quickly.

26g Kanthal is a wonderful general purpose wire IMO. You can build pretty much what you want by way of resistance unless you are on a stupid low/TC kick like I am at the moment when the 22G 316L wire comes in really handy.

I found anything thinner than 0.42mm (25.5g) too fragile for rewicking without annoyance.

Have you found any good ones? The best I've found is Solubarome's Cafe Bresil. But I prefer the flavour of a lighter roast. Solubarome's Kenyan (Where the best coffee beans come from IMO) coffee is vile.

The ones i've tried were ready made (only 3) Can't remember what they were now lol I liked one out of the three the others were not to bad but i wouldn't get them again, from now on i make my own, haven't made my own yet but i'll be experimenting, this past year it's been mostly fruit flavours, on a different note i bought some glass measuring jugs so ready to make a load up including the apple crumble Smile got about 3/4of a gallon of pg and vg left so should last a fair while Smile

RE: What have you got on order ?
I buy both PG and VG in gallons. But I do do a little manufacturing along the way.

RE: What have you got on order ?
It is a little compared to what I have done.

The client list is much shorter than it used to be.

Thinking about manufacturing superior atty stands though.
