    nice juggs @JonathanFriedman :p thats another build i have never tried...

    i never liked the vape off those either @CrazyChef ...i prefer regular or groove fused any day.

    i just got my build station set up a couple days ago and im spending the night building xmas coils for some of the (only) good people (left) at my local shops. most of them are pretty moderate vapers, using current regulated devices and atomizers, so they are getting .2 ohm polished aliens, and the guy whos a bit more hardcore is getting a set of alien framed staples closer to .1 because i know he has an appropriate mod for a build like that. it feels pretty good knocking out a few builds in a row. i usually am in a hurry just to keep myself and my room mate operational and i never build for fun any more. im two pair of aliens (not polished yet) into my list of naughty/nice and i feel like i am just getting started. i got 'the crown' and 'the king is blind' playing (metal bands) and a bit of xmas hash at my side. my room mate is out for the night. i feel like a jacked up steam powered santas little coil making mach1ne. i hope the holiday season is going easy on you guys <3 :)

    edit - some results so far

    I love those polished aliens, you've got to give me some advice on what I would need to do to complete polished aliens they look so cool and I bet they vape awesome! Alien Framed Staples are among my favorite coils to make too! Yours always look awesome.:eek:

    i did one pair at a time, so i made two 8 inch pieces of alien wire with 34g wrap and 28g cores (this actually made it harder to deal with the thicker wrap wire as the 28 is pretty flimsy compared to a framed staple stack, or 26g), then i did what squiddoode does in this video:

    just a lot gentler because you are just trying to flatten the 34g, which is only .16mm thick. i just do quick pulses on the drill and check in between, but i squeeze the sandpaper pretty hard. it doesnt take too many pulses to get the wire flattened out (a bit less than half way through) at 400 grit. then i just do slightly longer pulses the higher up i get in grit, until i hit 2k (400, 600, 800, 1k, 2k) grit and i give it quite a few long pulses.

    Absolutely beautiful!! I don't know how you get colors like that! I use all N80 so mine just turn gold to blue and then the color is gone. Maybe I should try putting my coils on a regulated mod and pulsing at really low wattage. Your Alien Framed Staples are just absolutely beautiful. It's my favorite build by far. What are the specs on this build? Did you use Kanthal for the cores? I noticed you were able to dual them and when I do .5 x .1 ribbon framed with 26g wrapped with a 36g decore I can't dual them on a mech mod they just come out too low, which is OK cause I don't mind using a single coil but I'd love to know what the specs are for this particular build. Anyways I love the build thanks so much for sharing your builds with us I think I'm motivated to try some Alien Framed Staples tonight when I get home from Jui Jitsu now. Absolutely beautiful @mach1ne.

    these are ss316 wrap. i pulse/color all my coils on a regulated mod at like 2 or 3v max. i do it in a darker area so i can see the hot spots a bit earlier and try to work them all out before i let the coils get too hot and lose the colors.

    the specs on these are 26g frames and 4 x .4mm ribbon, all ka1 cores, and 36 ss316 wrap wire. 3mm 4.5 wraps .12 ohms. aliens made with 26 decore.

    Not as good as you @mach1ne! But it does vape deliciously! This is my usual, all N80, .5 x .1/26g/36g Alien Framed Staple. IMG_0699-min.jpg

    This is kinda redundant, I'll get onto a New Coil soon but for the New Year I figured I'd share my favorite coil with you one more time, the Alien Framed Staple. Happy 2018!(6).5x.1/26g/36g IMG_0716-min.jpg IMG_0715-min.jpg

    beauty :D happy new year to you and yours as well <3

    heres a couple builds i forgot to post here from last week. i got a black version of 'the tank' clone for my black/copper notorious 26650 tube (clone), and i did a rush build for it on the first day, which didnt vape so great, and a 5 x 30/40 ss316 alien build the next day, which vapes great.

    rush build, made from scrap wire bits. no idea whats in it...its a framed multistrand/cablecore fused clapton. theres a bundle of small wires likely ranging from 36 to 42 n80 and 316, framed with 26? n80 or ka1, wrapped with 36 ss316. ramp up is not great on this ijoy 26650...
    Capture1.JPG

    and heres a pair of 5x30/40 aliens that ramps up way better. i have a huge mistake on the back coil, but it glows evenly, vapes well, and you cant see it cause its in a tank ;)

    Thanks Chef! Happy New Year to you and your loved ones. I was thinking of going back to the SSFC and doing them right this time. I had this rounded thing going on with them, even though they were coming out alright, I think I can do them better. By making the Alien Framed Staple so many times I feel like I have a better foundation for all framed staple variations which are personally my favorite type of coils. After that I want to try some twisted wire as the frames for the ribbon and kind of helix the wrap with no spacings if I am describing what I want to do correctly, I think you understand. Them I want to stagger wrap some square wire .4 x.4 and fit some .4 x.1 ribbon in between the square frames to make like a SSFC except with square wire as the frames. I don't know if any of these ideas are going to actually improve the quality of my vape but its good practice for the hands and they might look cool if done properly :D

    I love the colors you get Mach1ne! Those purples, blues, and oranges are just beautiful! Your alien coils look even cooler. I can almost see the color green if I look at the portion of the wire where the light hits the most, its like a lemon lime alien coil haha. Absolutely beautiful coils. Love your work everytime! Let's go 2018!

    here my first stapled helix. 10 x .4mm/2x30 twisted frames/5 x 40 fuse .14 ohms 4mm 4.5 wraps. most of the ribbon and all the fuse is some mystery 'hybrid wire' i got as samples from the vape shop. colors up nice, and its a bit higher than n80 in resistance...in my new deathtrap rda on that notorious clone:

    Wow Mach1ne! Looks absolutely fantastic!! I really really love the colors you got its an absolute work of art. I had mentioned that I was thinking about attempting something similar, basically the same thing just no gaps in the Helix if that makes sense. You beat me to it. Now I gotta come up with something else:p. I'm going to make a SSFC except I'm going to use square wire for the frames so it will be .4 x .4 square frames stagger wraped with 36g and 8 pieces of .4 x .1 ribbon in between the frames, fused with 38g! That's my next build. I've been continuing to do alien framed staple coils and I feel like trying something different. You photos are always great, super high quality, thanks so much for sharing that build I love it. I love low resistance single coils! Question: How much would you say you twisted the frame wires? Like, how many seconds on the drill for example? I know all drills are different but I just want to get an idea.

    i actually twisted it on my hand drill because it was like 2am. it got to the point where i could feel the tension on the wire pretty good, but not close to breaking it. i had it looped over a screw driver, so i pinched the end as close to that as i could and slid the screwdriver out and teh wire had a lot of tension in it (spun around quite a few times before it relaxed and i could let go). i just stopped and tried to hold the 40 across a twist and see how the angle looked. i was shooting for a pretty 'dramatic' angle and it was a bit less than i thought it would be. i could have prolly wrapped it at 7 or 8 spaces, but i did 6 (and ran out on my last pass, so theres a gap)

    i cant wait to see your square ssfc. i love that idea :D

    forgot to add, when you twist your frames up, make it one piece, double the length you need and fold/cut it in half...youll never get the twists the same if you try to do the frames separately. common sense advice, but in the middle of a tough build its hard to remember details sometimes :D

    edit : put together a little package for a build brother in another country. hopefully still time to get it in the mail today...a spare stapled helix from my build last night, and a pair of polished aliens. hope he is surprised when they arrive :eek:

    the stapled helix wasnt performing as good as i wanted on the ijoy 26650, and i think it was too small for the deathtrap, so i put it in the csmnt clone, and made a giant alien zipper for unregulated para-series for the deathtrap...an improvement for the rda and the stapled helix, now they are both doing better.
