    carto punch and aspire BDC

    never used one, so asking here.

    would it be possible to use a carto punch to add holes to an aspire BDC ? I like a thicker juice and find they really don't wick too well so you get muted vape or random 'very slight' burning.

    I guess i'm not sure if the walls of a BDC could withstand the punch without being warped or otherwise misshapen, rendering the threading useless. I also fully understand that the new holes would obviously be higher than the standard ones.

    perhaps some kindly person wouldn't mind trying it on their gear to save me from ruining mine ? failing that i'll buy a bloody punch next time I get into steamers and try it on some old BDCs or maybe i'll get out a really small drill bit and put some in myself (and inhale all the wonderful filings while shorting the damn thing).

    I doubt a punch would work too well on an Aspire BDC, because there isn't much of a tolerance inside that outer sleeve as it is to rebuild. Maybe a drill and deburr instead to test the theory?

    that's what I was thinking Essie. thx for the thought.

    i'll drag a bdc into the cellar later give it a right good drilling and see what happens.

    I am guessing cartos are more substantial - like those you get with cig-a-likes.

    Yeah, I'd like to see where this goes.
    While we're on the topic of modding Aspires, I'm curious as to what other material could be used to wick within that sleeve. I find it doesn't last more than one or two rebuilds.

    its shocking, when you pull it apart its like a piece of cloth around the inside of the tube. I have seen them rebuilt with cotton, just too fiddly for me to be bothered though.

    hopefully the new vertical ones have more than just the coil direction changed.

    It's worth doing if you can get that liner to stay put
