Ok, if you’ve never used anything but kanthal and a little NiChrome, then your first build may be ugly.
Here is mine on the Pharaoh Leaker…er…dripper RDA. Yes those are split shot weights that are removable. I put just enough fold in the mesh to hold a 22g SS wire and then clamped it down with the split shot weights. I then cut the mesh at an angle towards the weight to keep everything out of the way while I rolled it. 3 wraps on a 3mm or so screw driver.
Positioned just above the air holes. The top picture doesn’t show it under the clamps but it fits well under there.
Glow shots are hard to do with a large iPad. You may notice the wire glows a touch brighter and heating this I would take it real slow and low not to curl or melt the mesh. It did have a nice glow from inside out without much fiddling.
.12 ohms and this thing sings with flavor at 75 watts in power mode. Pretty sure I could go higher but now time to futz with it in TC.
It’s ugly enough to laugh at but damn at the flavor from the very first hit.
@Naseschwarz this was actually easier than I thought. It will hang on to cotton or rayon. I ran a piece of dental floss through the center and knotted it to the end of the rayon and pulled it through.
