    So I got a few things I wanna share with you guys idk if this stuff was already posted guess I could search it or comb tons of pages, lol. But I'm not going to.
    So first off checkout
    http://www.technicalglass.com
    You can order quartz crystal rods the 2-3mm are super handy and easy to cut (take not the slightest etching or cracking will split when heated)
    I've been curious about their fritted disk also it seems like I could make a huge skillet by coiling around or on a 10mm disk.

    Another thing I just found not to long ago and I'm planning on ordering are some of the www.sourcevape.com
    They have titanium tc nails
    Triple quartz crystal rods atomizer
    And some sweet bubbler attatchments

    fyi- from my experience, that source nail is about the worst portable erig device on the market right now... the ceramic heating elements are very, very fragile and the overall design is inferior to the devices like the errlmod/kt 510nail (which is the same as the dabado bolt m or the dr dabber boost mobile, but cheaper)

    Just built a stovetop jig and wrapped up a coil for my hannya rda tested it with some e-juice rips like a champ.i plan on breaking it in tonight. Any good alternatives to cotton? Besides threading the wire through silica. Reading out at 0.5 22G kanthal

    Personally, At this point I wouldn't buy a 510nail of any variety on dhgate, only because they tend to have a high failure rate. Good luck getting a replacement atomizer from a dhgate seller. On the other hand, edabs and Errlmod have both been awesome at keeping me running and honoring the warranty. Greenlight and source, not so much.

    I'll have to check Em out I don't really use enails ever just cause of the restricted airflow otherwise I can usually rebuild just about anything

    This is a concept I've been toying with and it actual ended up working better with a dual set up but I don't have a pic. Accidently busted a ceramic cup trying to put in a chalice build in. So I modded it [​IMG]

    So I've been using a velocity clone and a VTC mini, and it's been treating me great.

    I was wondering if anybody knows of an RDA that has a very wide and tall build area? Like 1.5'?

    Thanks.

    There's not alot of tall rda's especially since the past year mini rda have been trending. Here's a few that I could think of
    So horney rda

    I think you might have better luck getting on building an rta, if you get on fast tech you can choose a base for an rta that is compatible with kayfun parts ie silverplay, kayfun monster, Orchid, Russian 91%, kayfun v1-v4
    Then you'll wanna find rta Tank pieces that you can stack to a desired height you could also do the with the 30mm kayfun attachment
    These come in almost any material and color

    Are you trying to get away from the heat on the deck or just wanting more room to elevate your build?

    I'm experimenting with a build that uses a reservoir of oil. It's a design I came up with that I want to test. Basically there's a glass tube of oil that sits in a coil that heats up to a temperature which can melt the oil, but not vape it. Then there would be a regular coil, which would heat to vaping temperature. Air flow and the pressure inside the atomizer would be balanced so that sucking hard would pull oil out of the tube onto the red hot coil, but sucking lightly would just pull vapor. Hard to describe, but on paper it doesn't seem impossible. Only one way to find out.

    Basically I'm trying to come up with a self loading design that doesn't vape a huge volume of oil at a time, doesn't require you to pack a large quantity at a time, and can be easily reloaded with prefilled tubes of oil.

    So Ive done a crap load of research an I still think I'm going to buy these just cause they all look simple to rebuild (npthing compared to early pro tanks)

    interested to see what you come up with!


    my Goon RDA should be here any day. ill get the post trimmed up and post some pics. ended up getting the 22mm version to hack into. the rafale x 24mm is large. every build ive thrown at it had room to spare. so if the posts are spread far enough apart a 22mm deck should work for just about anything.

    if im understanding you correctly you want to wrap wire around the outside of a small boro tube. then put ekowool on one end of the tube, fill the tube with oil, then put ekowool on the other end...? is that right?

    Quartz rod =/= wicks. They are solid, non absorptive, they do not have any wicking ability. You could use a wick, or you could use a quartz rod. When oils are vaporized, then are repelled due to heat output from the wire, the wickless design won't have the same flavor as one that feeds oils to the heater continuously.

    Well "wick" is used loosely here. I really mean the "thing one wraps the coil around". I guess I don't fully get how (well) this works either as the ceramic rods, for example, are porous and the material melts into it.

    i find having the wire do both jobs of wicking and heating to be ideal.

    ive tried a lot of wicks and while they can work great they are just another piece to have to clean.

    i should add that they are best suited for those who dont want to worry about loading often. but also know that comes with flavor loss. if you build a rig to vape one dab atta time youll get a much more flavorful experience.

    Can you elaborate on what you mean by this? Bare coil?

    That's what I'm doing, just a bare tight coil of 316L clapton that I'm TCing. 10 wraps at 1.5 mm 28 gauge wrapped with 36 gauge, about 0.71ohms after tuning. Built it on this cheap Fasttech clone.
