@TorturedZen Either you got a short ass arm, or that’s a BIG ass knife !!!
I’ve heard of a poop knife, but an ass knife…? What good could possibly come from that!!!
We Americons generally tend to “toot our own horns” only in elegantly understated, sophisticated ways:
I use pecil boxes to keep my rebuilding tools and supplies in. One box has the actual stuff I use to build with, another with my most used wires and wicking materials.
I have so many other things I use but wanted to list a couple. My curved mini scissors are also invaluable to me. Not all are the same. Some peoole call them cuticle, eyebrow or grooming scissors. I use them to cut , and thin out wick tails, and also to tuck cotton in wicking holes.
Edit- it looks like I still don’t know how to post pictures.
RESPECT for the shelves!!! AWESOME!!!
The grub screws that you posted - Are they compatible with the Aromamizer? I managed to strip a couple…
Who has a clever way of controlling wire spools.
I’ve tried elastic bands, and cutting a slot in the side of the plastic spool, but I rather fancy a tray that will hold them all standing upright, but with a clever way of controlling the wire to stop it going all crazy.
Then to be able to just pull on the end and cut off what I want, without it all unravelling.
I use shot glasses to keep atomizer upright.
I have a lether strap i use as a strap wrench.
A rubber glove will work too. Wrap the strap around and hold the ends together an twist.
I use beadalon spool tamers that work perfectly
Great idea thanks mate
@paingawd I have used them on a few SteamCraves thus far.
Wotofo rolls have them on them. I don’t know if it’s just the ones they use or if its because it’s claptoned wire, but they suck. I mean it should be convenient but I just probably dont know how to use the tamer. The wire don’t come out easily and when I twist, it unravels underneath.
I have some thin elastic ones from UD and the same thing happens - the beadalon ones I have are wider and stronger elastic and have a little tag on the opposite side from the opening that you hang onto and then just pull the wire they work ok for me.
I can definitely add this to my list.
I had about 30 pieces of fused clapton wire ready to be twisted and this thing does it in no time Love it!
@anon28032772 OK, now you have me curious. I see that it’s a powered coiler, but if you’re only doing a few wraps, what’s the magic ??
If you’re making regular round wire coils, 2 at a time, this is not for you
Every so often, I spend an hour (or 2) making coils and end up with meters of wire. Fused claptons or other wide wires don’t work as well on a regular coil jig from e.g. coilmaster.
I’ve got the v3, but the principle is the same. Try doing 10 or 20 coils and you know its worth
Ahhhhhhhhhhhh. I don’t know how I didn’t think of that. Thanks very much for that mate.
