RE: How do you dip yer wick?
In again Smile


Twisted 24g 80/20 with 37g kanthal ran down the grooves. If that makes sense. Hope my camera could pick that out.
It came out at .16 from 6 2.5mm wraps. Ramp up is ridiculously long so it won't be staying in there. Vapes OK,  flavour coil for sure, vapour could be better.. and is on a regulated. Shame it's a mech build.

That coil had to go. So out with the old and in with the new Smile

Thought I'd try a variant of a fused Clapton.. inner core wires are 1 24g nichrome & 1 24g 316 ss. the outer wrap is 0.4×0.1 kanthal ribbon.

I went with a dual 4 3mm wraps at .09

0mg (see what i did there Mosking) this coil is amazing! If you only try one fc coil it has to be this. The vapour production is frankly silly and its like a wall of flavour punching me in the tonsils. This coil stays! (for a while maybe)
Again cotton bacon v2, with an attempt at Scottish wicking it

Outstanding builds there Mike! You know what's funny? if you go back to the start of this thread and see some of our builds back in the day, they're cringe-worthy LOL Pleasantry

Keep 'em coming buddy! Awesome stuff! Drinks

Nah, they're not that bad, we all started somewhere right?
 It's like a trip down memory lane looking back through this thread, with so many attys come and gone, it's a piece of history! Soon enough my builds will look old hat.

I'm happy enough with my 7 wrap 28ga kanthal duals at .50; it will be quite a while before I can post up anything like ol' gently.

I meant 26ga, sorry. Works good for me, at least from the reliability and predictability standpoint.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
i do twisted coils commonly . my theory is if i botch a coil its just kanthal , no big deal.

2 pieces of equal lengt , or 1 long piece folded over . twist 1 end together an place it in a drill ,grab the other end with plires and slowly twist the two in to 1 .
this ofcorse cuts the resistance in half ,and creates aditonal surface wich gives more vapor.
