RE: How do you dip yer wick?
My coils work fine but they are never as neat at the ends as the ones I see from gently or yourself - the first and last wraps are never right up against the rest of the wraps - there is always a tiny gap. I have tried using tweezers to close the wraps while the coil is red but all I do is ruin the coil - too heavy handed - it looks like I have used Don's ''heavy'' hammer on it.[Image: tongue.gif]

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
After dropping my Gbox down the loo (It was Clean) I took the hint. I removed the clapton coils I received from gentlydoingit* from the frame on the wallWink and put them in the Radar RDA. I used the 29g x2 317L x 40g NI80 coils (I've still got two sets in the frame looking pretty on the wall)Biggrin

Anyhow I dried the GBOX out and its working perfectly (Its midnight dip didn't hurt it)Good Now to the point of this post:

The coils are reading 0.24ohms I'm running them in Temp mode, 400F at 17W and I must say: I'M CONVERTED the FLAVOUR from CLAPTON COILS is much BETTER compared to the single strand coils I normally use.

Hi Rob - I fully agree - the Clapton coils I got from gently are now both in use on my squonkers - the flavour is much richer - I am converted as well[Image: smile.gif]. Glad your GBox survived its plunge.[Image: tongue.gif]

Glad your mod survived rob!

It's hard to put your finger on what's changed exactly, but there's nothing like a fresh set of fused claptons to tingle the taste buds Smile

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I wish I had the patience to make something like fused claptons. I bought a spool that is not so good IMO. 

The most complicated build I made were some twisteds that I am vaping on now. I might redo that atty with some regular 24g A1 3mm coils.

Try, 24g A1 twisted 'til it snaps, 5 3mm wraps.. awsome coil!

Yeah, some of the premade stuff is poor quality at best Dodgy I've seen 24a1×2 32 ffs, a coil like that would be massive! Not to mention useless.

That is real close to what I have on my buddha mini v2 right now. I think it is more like 6 or 7 wraps. I get confused counting the wraps with how many are half wraps. I would post a pic but I do not know how yet. Lemme look that up...

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I got the imgur app just so I can share photos here.Give_rose
I hope I did this right because if I didnt, then a whole lotta people will see my ugly, not so fresh, blackened, loosely wicked coils.Secret
I usually wick tighter but was in a hurry last time. Custards are not kind to coils, but my cotton stays good for quite a while if I keep up with my dripping.

Here goes...
