RE: Premade Coils
I have been kicking around the idea of getting one and testing its limits. Also have it working on something that's part of a bigger build while I make another part cutting build time in half. It's also very very quiet which is a huge plus. I'm about to go buy another drill because mine is so freaking loud.

Actually, they should be fine on a parallel mech - as long as the batteries are quality 20 amp cells (or higher), such as the Samsung 25Rs. The 26g pair should pull about 26 amps, and the 24g pair should pull about 40 amps. Well withing the range of most (again quality) 20 amp cells.

If you used the Daedalus, post a video...

I'm tempted to start a fund campaign to get Eddie one of those just to listen to the colourful language he'll use when something doesn't go quite right! Tongue Yeah I know, dark sense of humour....

RE: Premade Coils
I do own a daedalus and I've made some cool stuff with it. I've also done claptons by hand. I prefer the daedalus. I'm telling you that once you see one in person or better yet have a chance to use one it will be a must have tool for even the most experienced builder. I'd like to think I had some influence for tinwhisker getting his.

Hi FB - dark sense of humour - bloody pitch black.[Image: smile.gif] I will tell you one thing though - if it would make a Claption of a sensible size that read about 1.8ohms I would think about getting one[Image: tongue.gif]

Eddie I will take that on as a challenge...I'll do a 2 wire 32g twisted then clapton in 40-42g wire... single coil should run about 1.8 ohms....I'll make 2 so I can then mount them on an atty and get a super high 0.9 build... Tongue

What's the smallest core wire you can use with it? I use up to 34g single, double and triple core wire. Just from the design of it I don't believe it would work well with anything above 28g core.

The smallest I've done is 30g with 36g wrap single core. I don't see any reason you can't do any guage you'd want to.

Interesting, with the way the spool moves down the wire I would think the spool platform would cause the core wire to go all wacked due to how thin it is.

I've only done that once to see if I could. I really have no use for clapton wire that small. I did put it on a swivel to keep the core wire steady.
