    Cookies in the oven. I am baking cookies, cookies, cookies! My Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are done and the first pans of Chocolate Chip are in the oven now. Next up will be the the chocolate chip recipe with Craisins instead of chocolate chips.
    All of us nurses at work have teamed up to make the nurses aides' Christmas gifts. A couple of weeks back we decorated plates with fabric to put a variety of cookies on, for all of them for Christmas.The plates will be made up on Thursday, ready for our unit Christmas party on Friday. The aides appreciate that the gifts are handmade
     
    There may or may not be 4 dozen of each kind...... just sayin'. I gotta sample you know for quality control purposes!

    I may fix the audio.  I had a tech hell day trying to get the thing finished.  Rendering the video completely crashed my primary machine.  I'm talking complete instant power off crash.  Something I can address later when I have more time.  Finally got everything transferred to a laptop and it managed to render the file.  Right at the moment I'm just glad to have it posted on YouTube keeping my promise.  As far as the "next" idea, I'll have to think about that a bit.  I turned my poor doghouse upside down for about three days doing this thing.  Just had to give it a shot and see what it was like.  The child in me came up with the blastisimo intro and outro, lol.

    Nope. Sorry, not buying the scare tactics, and that's just what this is. The genie is out of the bottle, there's no going back now. Even if all the mom and pop shops are gone, there will still be the black market. China makes too much money from vaping equipment to give up so easily, and other than nicotine, eliquid is very easy to make for yourself.

    Welcome to the forum!  
    Please forgive me if you are on top of everything I am about to write but the following is the obligatory safety intro to mech mod building, lol.  Or at least everything I can think of right now. 
    Google "Battery Mooch" and to find charts he has posted on vaping batteries.  18650 batteries are rarely rated accurately.  Battery Mooch tests batteries specifically for vaping and publishes the CDR or continuous discharge rate for batteries.  Use the CDR value when calculating your builds and leave a little "head room".  In other words if the CDR is 20A build safe for say 18A.
    When using ohms law to calculate your amp draw use the max battery voltage of 4.2 volts to make your calculations.  
    Google and use "steam engine wire wizard" to design your builds.  This will help greatly in coming up with the right resistance the first time.
    Inspect your batteries well.  No rips, tears, degradation of the wrap or positive post insulator.  Use fresh high drain batteries as specification by Battery Mooch.  
    Always use a resistance meter and double check the resistance of you atty fully assembled to ensure the proper desired resistance.  
    Use common sense when vaping a mech mod.  If it starts getting hot.  Put it down.  
    Batteries do not explode but if they go into thermal run away they will outgas.  They will do this at an extremely rapid rate.  Especially tube mech mods are prone to not adequately vent if a battery goes into thermal run away and the mod will "blow apart".  In reality there is little difference between blowing apart and blowing up.  Pieces/parts will fly with great force causing damage to humans.  The heat involved in the experience is also intense again causing damage to humans.  
    A hint on building for mech mods.  Start using simple round wire.  Simple wire has the less mass than exotic coils and will heat faster and with less power applied.  Once you get the hang of building for a mech, there is plenty of time to play with different wire configurations.  
     
    Good luck!  Looks like a beautiful mod!

    You'll want your eliquid to be high in VG too.

    Or... if you like the Eleaf brand like I do, I'd suggest getting an Eleaf iPower 80W. This has a 5000 mAh battery life (even when I use it a lot), I only have to charge it around once a week. Personally, I like not having to use external batteries. In some, you will want to keep the two that go into the mod together, get an external battery charger, a case for storing the batteries for safety when not in use... even though I have all of those things and over a dozen paired batteries, it's more convenient for me to use the mods that have the batteries contained.

    You couldn't drag me into the stores today regardless of the sales. That said, I do need to get to some store within the next week or so to shop for the angel tree gifts. Good for you for getting some spectacular sales, though!

    It all worked out wonderfully.  A week later my balls fell off and I could sing really high notes.  Now I'm a celebrity in Beverly Hills and drive an Aston Martin D11 and wear support stockings on my hands.

    Just in! Two beautiful Pyrex drip tips from Gotvapes.com. One in a very light lavender and one purple. Might need to order some more of these.

    They were well packaged, looks like they've never been used, fast shipping even though I didn't order it Priority, great customer service...

    Forgot to add a couple of arrivals lately. 500 ft. of 30 gauge wire from Temco on that great sale Compenstine shared with us and three more custom HH.357 Cisco Hybrid Spec atomizers at 2.0 ohm, black, short barrel. I'm amassing a pile of these for easy rotation to be cleaned.
