Looks legit… Congrats on a great idea with rapid execution …Bravo sir
You sir, are a grade A badass!
Exelent job Phill. well done mate.
I watched the video and I’m really impressed. That gadget is badass. I did a double wrapped clapton back in April '15, but they were no where near as clean as yours. Great Job Man! You could sell a ton of those.
Agreed. Get a patent NOW!
That is such a dope idea! I just started vaping earlier this year and got addicted to making coils right away. I’ve been doing them all with a Ryobi drill and my hands. I’ve wasted countless feet of wire, but I get total satisfaction when I get a wire like this out of it. 3 parallel 24g kanthal wrapped with 32g kanthal alien style. 5 wrap, 3mm, .15ohm.
Hi there , just throwing it out there but has anybody used one of these for clapton building ?
Seeing as a lot of people use fishing swivels to aid in their building why not other fishing equipment ?
I believe some people have posted using these in the past successfully. I haven’t tried it myself. To be honest I forgot all about them. Thanks for the reminder.
To be honest i didn’t even think about them until i saw this post, haven’t tried using one yet for clapton building either. Only ever used these years ago while fly making . Be interesting to know how well people have got on with them though.
I tried it and made about a 2 inch section that was good the rest was crap
Which method did you use?
I used the pipette I’m thinking the wire i’m using is too small of a gage
(using 24 core/ 32 outer)
the pipette fed beautifully
Wire tension is very important using this method. Make sure to keep the pipette at a 90 degree angle or slightly tilted away from the wraps to keep the wire from over wrapping onto itself. Stay slow a steady from the start and with practice it should work. Good Luck.
Also make sure to twist straighten the core wire before wrapping.
I am on a mission to make a Clapton I’ll take your advise
(which I really appreciate) and just keep trying!
Thanks for the help!!
Holy crap! What was the ramp-up like on that bad boy? What mod was used to fire it?
It was on a Sigeli 100 something. Ramp up wasn’t too bad at higher watts.
This was the beefiest coil I ever made and probably the best kanthal build.
