So I ordered a Thing LOL

A new toy to play with and I ordered it to try Dan’s Stove Top (or Lolly) coils but didn’t know it wasn’t the right RDA so hey something new to play with when it comes in anyway. It comes with the coils and you can buy them seperate LOL

Stove Tops would have to be amazingly superior for me to try them. Look like a real PIA.

The reason I was fascinated with the stovetop coil is because of a video Dan did where he just stuck a small ball of cotton into the center of those coils and plucked it out to move to another mix. Maybe @Dan_the_Man can share his great video

Looks very interesting @authormichellehughes. I can attest to NEVER having tried any stovetops. I’ll have to get some time, and watch those vids, to make sense of the wicking on those little round babies.

It will probably take about three weeks for it to come in and I’ll do a quick little unboxing and if I can figure out how to wick them hahaha maybe a video of that.

Oh snap, (I think the kids are saying that now a days). That is the one that comes with the little tool. I almost bought the RDA just for the tool LOL.

Here is the vid my friend.

I always forget just how much of a dork I really am. Makes me laugh.

That was a short-sighted thing to say. I had never even looked into them, so to simply make a flippant statement like that was a little hasty.

I looked into a few build videos online, and it didn’t look that hard at all. So I figured I’d try one on my Profile (the old version, not @mjag’s fancy improved one.

I’ve never vaped one so I don’t know if it’s a fool’s game or not, but I did it horizontally rather than vertically so it would fit the Prof’s mesh style deck.

First time winding the coil, so be gentle… I put the ceramic thing back in so the cotton would have something to push against the coil. But be honest because I am totally open to feedback. I’m sure it looks like a bird’s nest compared to the ones pros make. Sorry pics aren’t great, crappy camera.

I saw someone say. If you have any coil type jig maker and screw the spacing screw all the way in, and keep inward pressure on it while winding… than… rather than winding a regular coil it will make a stove-top no problem. If I see it again will pass the link.

I just tried it like this fellow did. Seemed to work OK, but I may have made the center hole a little large.

It looks great to me, Phil. How did it vape?

So far so good. It has good flavor and was easy to build. So far, no dry hits which is what I’m most fearful of.
