stapled claptons
Started this fine crisp day with a list of things to do including a few coils for the 13/9....

As a project manager I have come to accept that there must always be a plan B, plan C etc.... we even have a name for it, it's called the known knowns and known unknowns....

Pulled out the wire, tools and my NC to vape on and....... okay so now I am taking a break as I have a stapled clapton on the way - stacked 4 strands of ribbon, 26g outer and 34g around it.....wire is wrapped....need a break....figured I needed something special to introduce the 13/9.

May even throw it on the new Sig 150.....an introduction party! Tongue

RE: stapled claptons
Those coils look very nice! Well done. That's one kind of coil I've not gotten around to building yet. Would you say it's worth the effort versus a normal fused clapton?

RE: stapled claptons
Flavour wise yes. I'm sure like some of your multi-wire coils, the additional surface to heat allows for additional flavour imo.

Of course that said, these coils also improve your ability to use the "f" word as a noun, a verb, and adjective during the build stage. Good2Search

RE: stapled claptons
You made those?? Nice job!

Staples are better than fused mike, though harder to do.what fb has there is a framed staple, also better than fused but really only as good as a staple.

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

RE: stapled claptons
If that is a fancy word for pita and a complete test of someones last nerve, then wow, I made a framed staple - use of multiple paperclips to keep it all aligned, some tape on the ends and I suppose with some practice the length made could be cut down to what is required with little waste and practice does make for speedier process..... nice thing is I also got to make good use of the silicone tip pliers....

I was surprised though...I had expected a higher resistance with 7 wraps..... Sad A win and some luck on the build but a fail as I had hoped to build it for a series mod. Sad Only I can manage hero and zero on the same build! Tongue

RE: stapled claptons
Now will patiently wait for the GOON to arrive and think up what do I build and how so I can achieve the 0.5-0.7 I'm aiming for.. Tongue

Think I will go back to nice twisted dual or triple wire....very easy in comparison.... Tongue

RE: stapled claptons
i got a 15' spool of geek vape 26x32 fc today just to solve my own curiosity . as quality goes , as good as my own . the wrap is near uniform, with a few minor gaps here and there. not at all springy .
tbh i think id prefer to prefect my own , but im happy with the product.

Burbon comes from Kentucky , scotch comes from Scotland . Others deserve no bottle .
