RE: How do you dip yer wick?
If you haven't yet, I'd say check out some easy build videos on YouTube. This video does a good job showing how to make coils nice and neat for just a simple dual coil build, perfect starting point.

If Don's early coil pic doesn't help your attitude, nothing will. Not only did he vape that train wreck, but there was also dog hair sticking to it on the side and he vaped it anyway. Sort of the rat rod of coil building. We have all made suitable entries in that category. Except gently, of course.

That's funny - you describe it as a 7 wrap and there are about 10 wraps Smile

They were far better than my first attempt, that's for sure.... Smile

Just did some "time traveling" and read through this entire thread. Very impressive to ALL who contributed! I will probably never drip, but still super impressed!

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Funny - I use 24 guage spaced single coil SS wire, 6-7 wraps at 3.5 and get a great vape - looks like nothing special. Usually just below .2 ohms and quick ramp up.
