If you need more smoke or your pump is not very powerful go to .75mm hole. smoke works best from half to full throttle only, a...

If the plan is an old drawn plan, you cut or fold the plan length ways down the fuz with about an inch over the centreline, get them to copy the larger piece with the appropriate % + dialled in for one half and then get them to ...
