RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Just out of curiosity, have you ever done something like this before? When I started making coils I had a bit of skill since I make wire jewelry as a hobby, I guess I'm just trying to justify why your coil is so much better than my first Tongue

i have done fly tyig and hand wraped canadian style bibbets ( ice fishing jig/lure ). hadn't conected the 2 till just now , but im sure it provided a bit of an edge.
can't find an image of the bibbets , Paul or FB may know what they are.

When life hands you lemmons , make lemmon aid . When life hands you coconuts , stuff them in your shirt and ask if they make your boobs look big .

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I've done a couple twisted 26g kanthal coils and basic coils before this. My 36g nichrome 80 just showed up in the mail yesterday morning along with some ss wire, so it's the first time I've been able to attempt anything beyond a basic coil. I think I just got very lucky to be honest, and I had to get my wife to come hold the spool for me because it was binding up and not coiling off properly, it was a disaster up until then. I'm going to need to make up some kind of spool holder or something. I used the drill method and 2 ball bearing fishing swivels on a wooden base I made up. I've spent the last couple months watching every how do video I could find so I had a pretty good idea of what to expect. I've always been good with my hands though, maybe I missed my calling lol.

I've used bibbets for Pollock fishing - actually caught more mackeral than pollock with them - a salmon will take them as well.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
So tonight I tried my first Staggered Fused Clapton. Its a disaster LOL. I couldn't get the spacing right at all! I followed through with it though, as ugly as it is, the flavor is actually pretty good. I learned a lot from trying it, mainly that I'm in way over my head on this build lol. I don't think I'll attempt this again until I get more experience with claptons in general, and when/if I try it again I'll either use something bigger than 36g wrap, or I'll do the wrap in parallel and remove 1 wire. Came out to .2 ohm.
