RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Interestingly, it also vapes great at 40-56w too. I know many here will say that is severely underpowered for that coil, but what the heck. Works for me, right?

I know it sounds funny but I can't get over my fear of dry hits at high wattage.

Oh yeah, dry hits at high wattage hurts! They are bad enough at lower wattage. The bad thing about the higher watts too is that running at around 75 I can usually tell just before I get a dry hit, flavor starts going but at 90 and above they can sneak in with no warning or very little at least.

Keep Calm and Vape On!

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Tried something different on the Aromamizer to test it out. Used the same 24g A1 dual twisted setup. But this time, 3 wraps at 3.0MM ID. Reads .11. And even with the bigger diameter, it fits on the deck without touching and shorting. So far it's nice. Good performance vs. the old 2.5MM ID. Hoping with the smaller length of the wrap that the cotton doesn't burn out as quickly. Time will tell. It does inhibit the airflow a bit because it's so large, but I can live with it.

 I'm pretty sure this is the world's only 26g kanthal, 36g twisted flattened 316l fused clapton.

It'll be in your care package paul Biggrin

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
That's gorgeous, Mike! I keep forgetting to order SS wire, I've got a gift card on FT that I need to use so maybe I'll try to replicate those beauties Tongue 

Jk, I wouldn't even know where to begin with flattening wire. But it looks sick! Well done, mate.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
This took me five hours and a lot of wire. My vision is slowly coming around but my skill set has been dormant for so long I'm struggling to make coils, lol. Care packages are always welcome, Mike.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I am not doing it again for awhile. It was just to damned hard with my eyes not comletly healed. Almost lost a finger. That is on my Tsunami, BTW. Which is on my Snowman mech. Which is in my mouth.
