RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Yeah, I flamed the crap out of a strip of mesh for just that reason, its now ready for quite a few more wicks. Itfid prove quite simple to do in hind sight, but I've watched build videos over and over to try and learn, and I'm recoiling pretty regularly just to try different things so I'm getting fairly good at that bit.

I think largely its just a case of get some background then get in there and do it, keep doing it till it seems to work.

Well thats how I'm going anyway lol.

Yeah same here. Have you tried wrapping the SS Mesh tube with Cotton to insulate the coil ? (not cotton wool - Cotton material)

If you oxidise it properly it shouldn't be necessary.  I was wondering about rolling the mesh around a cotton core, see how that does.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Finally.  I've had some success with the rsst.

I'd watched both rip trippers and grimgreen coil and wick genesis atomisers using micro coils and cotton wool in a method called "the auto dripper".

The idea is you have a very short tail of cotton just protruding past the top deck into the tank. The other end is left bushy as a store of e liquid. All you do is tilt the tank to soak the wick, lean it back down with the air hole and thus the wick to the top to prevent flooding the wick and vape away. As the wick dries,  tilt it again and off you go - auto dripping.


Anyway,  I had a little time today so I gave it a go. I wound a 2 ohm .25mm kanthal micro coil, seven wraps around a 2.5mm is jewelers screwdriver, I pinched it up with my nails then fitted to the rsst. I then pulsed it to hot with the rsst on a vamo set to 14watts, everything glowing evenly. Once I'd pulsed it a few times,  I got me needle point tweezers and reheated thrn carefully pinch, reheated then pinched, reheated then pinched to form up a micro coil, sometimes using the screwdriver shaft to maintain the shape and location. 

After I was happy, I rolled a little cotton wool into a spear point and fed it into the coil from the top, setting ots location and trimming off the excess. 

Here's the results.

Note the little lump of wick just visible in the tank.

It works awesome,  but I still had a muted flavour. In a fit of desperation,  I pulled the stainless rsst ming drip tip and fitted a silver anodised aluminium ming tip......bang, flavour, warmth, vapour, all from changing the tip lol. I'm now happy with this set up.

I'll probably order a pulse-g from fasttech if they review favorably, I'm keen to try the reduced chamber set up.

Haha bloody hell graham, I was talking to JM about doing that very thing this morning and you've gone and beat me to it Big Grin

On a serious note though, I'm chuffed that it works like I thought it would and also chuffed that you finally got the RSSt Vaping like you wanted it to. I know you were determined to make it work. Smile

I might be PM'ing you to hound you on the finer details LOL

Great work

The best thing you can do is watch rip trippers youtube video on it. I was being lazy and didn't link it.....

Just found this video that seems pretty good for explaining building a genesis atomiser

Three days and three tank refills. Still vaping bob on, I'm going to try and get a chamber reducer and open the airhole out to 2.5mm
