Twisted flattened 34g stitched kanthal twisted 24g fc.. rather agricultural looking Mosking

.13 from 5 2mm wraps, vapes hot but the flavour and cloud make up for it. Should have gone in the velocity really, but it's already got a nice coil in Wink

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Looks like that might have been a bit of a pain to wrap into coils.

Speaking as someone who had to refill the strimmer (weed whacker, whipper snipper) with 3m of line four times today. Nettles just eat up the line.

Yeahitwas! What it's lacks in pretty it makes up for it in difficulty for sure.

Love my strimmer, hate coiling it Negative

If you'd told me last year I'd be putting 4mm 6 wrap 24g kanthal 4:1 nc ribbon fused claptons in an rta I'd have laughed my c**k off.. but here they are with room to spare!

Beautiful winds, my man! Among the best I've ever seen. I don't call you the vape master for nothing. (he pays me every time I say it).

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Here's my first build of the mason 40mm dump tank..

It's a tripple core fused clapton consisting of 26g kanthal, 316L and nichrome 80/20 wrapped with 36g nichrome, wrapped parallel with twisted 24g kanthal. Now here's the kicker, it's 4.2mm internal, over 6mm external and nearly 17mm long. By far and away the biggest coil I've ever built! It's ohming out at .12 and is easily capible of sustaining 200w!
So I tried it at full power and nearly turned inside out, man that thing hits HARD!

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Gently that is beautiful....I'd like to see more images of the coils - not to ignore the tank but I'd love to see the coils red hot. Smile

Maybe we can convince the masters here to start posting coil builds - I for one get inspiration from seeing such craftsmanship! Smile
