    Modding Technical References Sites/Documents and Parts Links

    I have been scouring the net looking for different types of information, battery tech, machining etc. Could a sticky be made to reference sites the veteran modders use?

    I browsed Battery Univeristy today, quite arduos found this site, which has plenty of Battery information on 18650's current brands pro's and cons only wierd thing about it is these guys seem to get off on Flashlight collecting, modding and testing but a good source of a layman read on current to market options.

Edit: I wont add suppliers to the list as in my opinion there are Vendor sections that support the forum etc so they will not be included. I will keep it to Technical information of course people can go wherever they like to buy their stuff...

    All of you mad scientists out there can you point us to your modding supply favorite places, even if its look inside your toaster, you can put up a post which I think I can link to the first post, maybe? Work that bit out later....

    Tips for metal turning tools
    Vertical Shear Bit

    The vertical shear bit produces a very smooth finish (better than some brushed SS finishes I've found) on the Gr2 Titanium, if I take my time there is no finishing required post lathe.

    Took a better pic of the finish on Gr2 Titanium

    I've been trying to figure out how some people make very similar coils to me but get drastically different ohm readings and came across this PDF about heating wire.

    I haven't read it all and so far it hasn't helped me figure it out but there is a lot of interesting info in it.

    Thought I would through a link in here for people to have a read if they are interested.

    Refer to page 48 - Kanthal D wire dimensions and properties.

    Work out the diameter of your wire from the gauge using calculator here Wire Gauge & Diameter Calculator and look up the resistance per meter in the pdf chart you linked.

    Larger diameter wire (smaller gauge) will have less resistance in the same length.

    E.g. 32 gauge wire is 0.20 mm in diameter, will have resistance of 43 ohm/m.

    You want 1.5 ohm, you need 1.5/43 meters length or 3.448 cm in this case. Measured from circuit contact points.
