    Resurrecting My Old 510T Cigalike

    Who'd have thunk it? A use for my old 510T - well, the atty at least.
    The cartos I'd got this little number for turned out to be too high-maintenance and pretty usless, TBH. So I rooted around in by bag of tricks and tried to use my old atties from my cigalike days.
    I'd pulled the spike from one in the past and tried using it without success, but I had a renewed interest in it when the cartos failed with this Drip on Demand system that I just had to check out.

    Anyway, I tried different size pieces of carto fluff over the coil and found that just a tiny square of this stuff laid on top of the coil works quite well. I've been using it for a little more than a day, pretty much continuously, without any problems at all. I just have to take a couple of drags before firing to ensure there's enough juice on it. Too much, of course and I'd know about it, but it's no big deal.

    It will never be pretty, but it works well enough to keep it up. Great for trying new juices out - just a quick rinse (including the little square of fluff if you're running out), dry and dry burn (not really necessary unless it's gunked) and you're good to go again.

    So, those of us who still have our 510s, we can make use of the atties at least.

    Yeah I reckon those drip on demand jobbies are made primarily with dripping atties , not carto's in mind ... I actually thought of ordering one a while back just to see how they went ... I still have a swag load of 901 and a few 801 atties lying about
    Not to mention about 50 306LR atties as well ( for the bottom feeders)
