Fuzzy or not, it looks good to me. That's on your new Wraith setup right?

Try the Zenith on it if it survived. Might be worth a try, the Zeniths give good results.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Major failure in the head. Looked at the coil in the Origen little - it was rusty. (Using SS316L).

So time for a new coil as well as the wick I'd gone in there to replace.

Into Steam Engine to work out the wraps. It said 7.5 wraps for an ohm. Seems less than I expected. Can anyone spot my mistake?

Stuck in the new coil. 0.04 ohms? That's not right. Wiggled the coil a bit in case it was shorting on the top cap.

Removed the top cap. 0.5 ohms - still low. Has anyone figured out my mistake yet?

Put the top cap back on. 0.08 ohms. Found the trailing bit of wire in the post. Cut it off.

0.5 ohms and working. But not exactly an ohm.

I suspect you'd left steamy set on dual coil when you opened the tab.. and then you left a juicy great tail kicking around when you built the coil Sarcastic_hand
