    Seeing that I'm bald, headstart might not be the correct choice of word....lol.
    And luck has no play here, this took a lot of work, a lot of time, a lot of oil, a lot of brushing and grooming...damn I love it! To be successful when it comes to a mustache takes but 1 thing: Own It!! The love will follow.

    Great topic my 2 cents on this if I may. Until a few months ago I only vaped commercial juice from overseas for over 3 years. Had no diy intention just bought nic juice from overseas. Found this forum learned heaps and started diy and I really enjoy it. I'm let's just say a bit pedantic about hygiene I won't just buy juice unless I know exactly where it comes from. Hence this reply.

    I've kind of worked out there are 4 types of juice makers. The big commercial juice makers, the smaller real innovative independent juice makers that comes up with great new juices to sell. Puts lots of time and effort into experimenting but still for commercial gain. All good no dramas. Then you get us the diy making our own juice sharing and learning from each other as we go along. Not for commercial gain and always looking for that holy grail of juice we haven't found yet. Still good no dramas. Great fun and a hobby almost by itself.

    And then you get the what I call the wanna be if they could be garage scientists for commercial gain only. Hufflepuff etc.. And we get lots of them here in AU too. They will work from mostly diy recipes not remotely their own, charge a fortune exploiting the vapers not knowing better or just starting out. Selling even single flavor mixes that actually costs as cheap as chips for a huge profit. And my biggest problem with them is nobody knows how hygienic they mix. And these do a lot of damage to the vaping industry which is why I support proper regulation of the vaping industry in the first place. juice is like food you won't just eat rubbish not knowing how it was made so why should vape juice be any different. Who knows what flavor enhancers and potential rubbish could be used if they have an opportunity to cut corners if they could?

    I love a post with a happy ending. @Room Fogger, good on you for setting the record straight.

    I too love sharing, I do this with vaping, plants and everything I have a passion for. Finding someone who loves it and is as interested in it as I am and helping them is very rewarding in itself.
