r3conwoo: I used the cotton lint from the lint trap in my dryer because I ran out of
cotton (most my clothes are cotton) and I thought it would work great but
It was disgusting. I think there were cat hairs in it.
I'm really tired of spending out money for the replaceable coils on my
atomizers, so I though it was time to move into building my own. Since I
already mix my own juice, may as well right?
I am obviously new with rebuilds, and just ordered a Kayfun Plus Second
I went with 28g Kanthal based on one of your other videos.
But my first question is about the degummed/sterilized Hemp Wicks. From
what I've read they are "supposed" to be superior to cotton. But are they?
Secondly, Silica vs cotton vs Hemp.
Thoughts on each please.
Spencer Embley: First I unravel 2nd boil 20 mins 3rd I ring it or press it then I heat dry
it till its fluffy
Wow my taste buds know when its not boiled cause it taste like pesticides
Jordan Lasher: dat facial hair
Richard Vert: Let me ask you , and I want you top think about this. Is it too much to say
that vaping could have the biggest impact on health since antibiotics ? I
think not. Do I think it actually will ? No. I don't. Because like so many
things the information isn't out there. Thanks for doing what you do in the
good fight !
Rockypup5234: Ok, I have a protank 2 with a small atomizer. However I cannot find the
stainless steel mesh you're talking about. You show a video with a long
I cannot find that rod, or stainless steel mesh. Could you please do a "how
Starting with pulling out the stainless steel mesh, or rod. Then how to
I got the cotton wrap around part. Then reassemble the whole thing. Could
you do that?
It would be a big help for us just starting out. Thanks again and your
videos are the best!
Rockypup5234: So sorry for all the typos!
I need could use a video on "how to" apply a cotton wick as opposed to
silica on a protank 2. ( Since there's no "stainless steel rod" to wrap
cotton around in the protank 2 atomizer).
Thanks so much for all your help.
Rockypup5234: Thanks for all the help!!
I have a Protank 2, However, with regards to using the atomizer, and adding
cotton strands to the stainless steel rod, or wick?... is something I would
like to try. However I cannot find a stainless steel rod in my atomizer. My
WICK is made out of "silica", And I cannot find a rod anywhere.
So could you do a "how to"
Video which is more specific In each other finding the stainless steel rod
Or just replacing the silica with a cotton wick in the protank 2
Rockypup5234: Hey Rip, Very useful info. In this video I understand the part about buying
the cotton and how you use it. My question is where does the stainless
steel bar come from that you wrap bacon around? Also do you need to trim
then wrapping 6 to 8 times around the stainless steel
quiapodz: I just tried the cotton fiber wrap on my ss mesh. This works great! It
feels like the coil is wicking like it has already been broken in. No
hotspots with even warm vaping. Thanks for the tip Rip!
siboriqua: What kind of cotton was that again need to try that out. Thanks for the
RiP Trippers: straight and hollow
Michael Ockerman: So what if you used muslin yarn instead of the fabric i picked both of them
up at Wal-Mart yesterday. wpuld it have thw same effect if you unraveled it?
RiP Trippers: 100% unbleached is fine. But is not as good, unless it is a fine coating,
Zac vaper: Muslin, unbleached.
Chris G: Can u just use cotton balls from wal mart bc that's what I am using
RiP Trippers: It should, just make sure you wrap a thin layer at the top. Thinner works
better than thicker.
Noobynoobynash: There you go, good name for it! A hundred years from now, in the annals of
Vaping History there will be the Peter K. & Rip's SS Qtip Methods.
deeweeg: Do you use the ceramic wrap procedure with the ss mesh with cheesecloth, or
do you like to wrap it thicker like in this vid?
Michael Ockerman: ok ill give it a shot and let you know how it works
RiP Trippers: Thanks brother.
TacoTPK: Do a yuotube seach for SS Mesh/Cotton hybrid wick by Quigsworth1. I use
Hugh Jass: holy crapballs you are on that other level RIP you really are. Keep on
innovating !! Vaping needs you !!
Chris Dunkleberger: I think you should post a tutorial on the Petar K method with the AC9. I
think it would really help new users as it is actually an easier way to
build a coil. I would still oxidize the wick for beginners though. On
another night I did receive my O-rings from Brent. Not only did he send
them free of charge, but also included the version two upgrade spring, bolt
and spare parts! I can't thank you guys enough! Any chance of a AC9
peter smith: would you do a video on how to wick the I clear 30, your wicks are the best
Allan Gibson: Followed your tips on a AGT Titanium which was giving me a lot of problems
it's now working fantastically, thanks for the tips regards from the other
side of the planet
junior sanches: Hey I was wondering how could u make the juice in a ce5 clearmizer test
John Davis: I FREAKING LOVE YOU! You just solved my issues. I have the Sigelei 19b MOD
with the Smoktech RSST RBA and used 400 SS with 6.7 ribbon cable and cheese
cloth strands. The break in taste is awful but it breaks in almost
immediately! THANK YOU!
RiP Trippers: Yes sir, in the works. :)
valentiner61: Love the innovative mind; why wouldn't you use silica? Does it not wrap
well? Have you tried silica inside mesh? You produced this before your
viddy on ceramic; where are you at now Rip?
RiP Trippers: send me a link to all natural hemp.
ZaoRain: thanks Rip. I may try this... is the stainless wick solid, hollow, or 2
wick, or P wick?
RiP Trippers: Nothing right now compares to the cleanest flavor of the porous ceramic imo.
RiP Trippers: Thanks brother. Not a big fan of silica, though I use it sometimes for
different juices. I believe cotton is safer though. Now I have just been
using ss mesh. I broke all my ceramic wicks.
RiP Trippers: I feel ya brother.
Brad Meyers: Hey man. Having an issue. Wrapping a 3/4 on 325 as and my svd keeps jumping
ohm readings. There's 0 hotspots and the wick is perfect. What can cause
this? It's reading between 2.2 and 3.2 and as high as 4 ohms, is it my coil
or the unit?
Trevor Jones: Thanks for responding! I did not use it,I did find some all natural cheese
cloth and will try on my next coil! My vamo is way sensitive and can't vape
any coil under 1.1ohm. Any tips? Thanks for the response again pal!
John Davis: What would be the difference?
edifying: Okay. Thanks. Great videos. Really helpful, informative and entertaining.
FrigginRights: Can you explain to me why cotton is safer than silica? I thought silica is
safer but I am new to the whole rba business so I'm probably wrong.
jllovit: i can attest to this. i've never used steel mesh yet for my A7 drip atty
but i discovered that 100% cotton is the way to go. it has way better
capillary action than silica. yes, you do have to keep it wet and a
workaround for burning mishaps is the habit of firing up the atty. if you
plan on using cotton only, fire in successions. not sustained firing. i use
common 100% cotton balls. dont use the facial pads unless you boil them
Brent Carter: Zac, sizing is a wax based coating used to increase the abrasion resistance
of yarn during weaving. So it can be boiled off (and often must be before
dyeing). But the simplest solution is just to buy fine cotton thread
instead of woven fabric. Then you don't have to worry about sizing. Its not
much of a worry really, but still you eliminate several steps by just using
RiP Trippers: edifying, first, the beauty of using RBAs is, you can use ss mesh, silica,
cotton, natural hemp, natural bamboo yarn, etc...., at your own risk that
is. Right now I am finding cotton matched with ss mesh to be fantastic! If
you were to cut strands and wrap it, the cotton would not be as tight and
you would not get consistent flavor.
Keefer2112: Love the crap that you do, but the head gear? C'mon holmes :-) My Son is a
Junior in HS and I guess he's gonna come home wearin that crap. lol. Vape
Brad Meyers: Using 32adw
Chris EGME: I'm a new sub and been watching some of your old videos, and I must say
that with that stache and beanie you look like Haggard from Battlefield Bad
Compnay 1 & 2. Google some images of him and you'll see what I'm talking
about. Your videos are amazing an informative, making you my #1 go-to
channel for vaping videos. Thanks, and keep up the amazing work.
Chris Dunkleberger: Why bother even oxidizing?
Chris G: I am rebuilding my kanger pro tank 2 easy as hell and I am using cotton
balls from wal mart boiled and dried then I pull it off then feed it
through the coil is that the way u would do it or is there a better way or
anything wrong with what I am doing let me know please bc it seems to be
fine I noticed the taste is dull and weird at first but gets better do I
need different Cotten or are the balls fine
