Thumbs Down Game for a laugh
Ok, So I order a range of Kanthal wire from Aliexpress over a month ago, anyway 2 rolls arrived, which was suppose to be 30 Awg.. Marked it as received. So I finally get time to makes some coils up.

Double check, measure the wire.. um 0.12mm ?

So im back tracking Cray2 100 foot x 2 rolls

Weight including plastic bit in middle
roll 1, 16.2 grams
roll 2, 7.2 grams

Both measure 0.12mm

So is this a lucky dip from them 37 AWG almost 36 AWG and half a roll of one and full roll of something? ha ha ha ha.. I give up they can keep the cash, Ordered lots of other sizes from same company which never showed so refunded on them. This was before I new about FastTech

Even the steam Engine cant make any 0.5 ohm coils out of this Good

What to do with it :0 cant be sure its Kanthal now, nothing written on bag

   

Twin coils 2.4 ohms (4.8 per coil) 5 wraps on 2mm ?

RE: Game for a laugh
Its usually the space that stops the number of wraps.. very little of it :0 but will have a play with 9 wraps to see if it fits in.. Wonder if it will sag in the middle :0

It's tiny in 36g, like 3mm long.. sag? Lol. It'll be much better than a 2mm 6 wrap coil.

RE: Game for a laugh
Well I bought a range in the early days long before I bought anything, thinking I would need to make 0.4 through to 2.4.. Did have a few problems along the way, RBA wont fit Triton 2, so Im stuck with the Kanger at the moment, its not very good with MTL so just use a EGO for that, did replace wire in those coils you normal throw away, as I bought lots of pre-made coils and straightened them out :0

So somewhere along the line I needed 30G.. and now a month later when all the wire should be here its not.. So have to order from UK now don't want to wait again.

Just wondering if it was any use for anything rather than scrap it. 9 wraps just sounded long :0 I guess Ive made too many sub ohm coils since.. I only have 24G wire and thats been fine for the Kanger RBA 0.5 ohm

Well I guess they could be used to make those, so perhaps found a use for them sometime I have ordered some nichrome 24G and a whole lot more... but spending most of my time making e-liquid these days.. too many late nights thats for sure
