The Clapton Tool


#81

thought you could appreciate these . If you haven’t already built them that is !


#82

I haven’t said much in this thread, but I can’t help but say… THAT is SWEET!!!


#83

All I can say is, DAMN DAMN DAMN!!! I’ll be working my Clapton tool all night tonight. Those are dream coils.
I’m waiting for my 36g kanthal to come so I can try more Fused Claptons. It’s a bit tricky with the 32g and they are coming out too big.


#84

I wanna see you pump out a couple of these bad boys !!


#85

You know I’m going to try.


#86

Holy moly those are cool! Kinda look like they belong on the creature from Alien.
When will the tutorial be up?


#87

Looks like some type of jewelry given by the Marquis de Sade.


#88

Those aren’t mine. That’s just what I’m aiming for.


#89

I saw this one yesterday, I think It’s the same coil. Oh no It’s not, less wraps.


#90

I came up with an idea at work tonight to flatten a Clapton, I was really surprised with the results so I wrapped it in parallel with a Spacedout Clapton. It’s not the prettiest, but this thing puts out like a broke hooker on Friday night. Keep in mind there are 6 different wire stands in this build so it heats up in stages.







A flat pair.


#91

I’ve had a little time in work so I thought I’d make some wire.

Here’s some pics.

I’ve made some spaced claptons and tight claptons by just having a little more or a little less tension on the spool tool.

Then there’s just some twisted gauges.

I might try twisting some 32g tonight with possibly 4 strands.

In the pics above is also a 26g core with 28g over wrap. Really easy with the Clappy Clamp lol (like that phrase @LoganMcguire )

And don’t forget people.

QUIMBY for President!


#92

What do you think of my first twist 26 &26g parallel @NewDrip


#93

Good looking build. What’s the ohms reading?


#94

My latest build. Dual Staggered Parallel Claptons .3 ohms. Staged heating.






#95

So you can potentially get .15 ohms if you double that, interesting! I’m curious about the ram up time. And what is your i.d. on that? You’ve done an awesome job!


#96

Its pretty much a normal ramp up time. The cores are 28g 317L and it ramps up pretty quick.

Check this out, twisted claptons the fused wrapped. Tag it “Lightning Wire”


#97

I’m getting dizzy looking at the photo of that coil!


#98

Was .22 I think. Just had to rip them out for a review got one back in successfully .41 still chucks


#99

This is how the big boys do it.


#100

Wow intense
