Coil Building Show Offs (Part II)


#181

This looks like a decent pair of aliens to me


I need a lot more practice but I think I got the basics nailed down


#182

Looking mighty fine.
What is that rda by the way looking almost like a wasp nano but with an actual juice well.


#183

It’s a Haku Cruiser


#184

Ok then, looks like you got the flow. So whats next?


#185

Staggered I guess :slight_smile:

And more wire (including ribbons)

But first I have to make a proper setup since deaduls chuck is horrible (and the swivels that came with it are not much better)


#186

I see. Did I give you a web address for tools? Anywho, I’ll have to get that video done on doing spaced coils for Staggered, STaggertons etc.


#187

Why walk when you can run as fast as you can!

Semi successful attempt at mohawk alien


#188

Just got my Hermetic RDA and thought baby alien might be cool. This is my 4th alien so far. It’s probably not perfect, but I am still proud and very happy with it. :slight_smile:


#189

If that’s not perfect, I really wouldn’t know what you’re aiming for…


#190

Lol I don’t know. Every time I make something, not just coils or juice but in general, I always find a little thing here and there that could have been better. I think all of us have that :slight_smile:


#191

I wish I had that. Nice job on the alien though.


#192

well it looks god damn perfect to me! :smiley:


#193

You know, I’ve seen commercial coils with more imperfections than this. From this view I can see none! For your 4th alien, you should be very proud of your work. I wish I had the space, eyes, tools and fingerspitzengefühl to even attempt this and I’d be happy and proud if I even came somewhere close to your result after my 57th attempt :smiley:


#194

Dual Clapton parallel (Dual parallel clapton? Clapton dual parallel? 2 clapton wires side by side and coiled?), AWG 26+34 SS316 x2, clocking at 0,5 Ohm.

I dont know how you all make those near perfect coils… I never could made them straight (Yet. Still learning)


#195

I be honest, I’ve never tried that. I don’t know why it never came to my mind lol. Thanks for sharing, might give it a try over the weekend, could maybe finally get a bit higher ohms that way :wink:


#196

This will translate into parallel also


#197

you probably already know this but the higher the gauge the higher the ohms. ie. if I want a .4 ohm fused clapton I will use 28g - 30g as the core and 38-40 for the wrap.


#198

Great job!!


#199

My baby aliens are at .4 ohm and that’s great. I’m trying to archive kanthal level here with using ss lol

Always wanted to try out .7-.9 ohm but I either have to build with higher gauge as you pointed out, making the coil so thin that unless I put them in a mtl device, my atties won’t work…

Or I could build regular and just add wraps, but if I want to stay under 60w I can’t run 8-12 wraps.

Increasing diameter I tried too, but still not getting above .5 lol by now it’s more a mission I have in my head…one day I’ll accomplish that :rofl:


#200

AAH HAA, Ok then. That is quite the mission. I would sure be interested in how that turns out. I think my highest MTL is .75 single coil
