What's your favorite wire for building coils?


#41

OK, Thanks.


#42

I read on ECF that It’s only a problem at the melting point. Vaping doesn’t get hot enough to give of fumes.


#43

Real cheap on Amazon. They have several gauges and brands. I got TemCo.100 ft 24G for $10.


#44

Ive read the same. Consider welders for a moment. Do you know how much of this stuff they inhale? Its a lot thats for sure. I welded daily for years and still do from time to time which is why i had no problem using it when i found out what type of metal it was.


#45

I have some ribbon wire in my stash but haven’t use it yet. Any suggestions on a build.?


#46

I keep forgetting to get some and try it. If you do some builds please let us know, seems like it would be a little more difficult to build with.


#47

Look up RipTrippers on youtube or twisted messes, they have both built with ribbon wire but I’m not sure what the coil was called.


#48

Thanx, I’ll check it out.


#49

No problem, Twisted messes has built with just about every type of wire I think. He does some crazy builds :slight_smile: Fun to just watch him sometimes.


#50

I concur, he is hands down the most creative coil builder on youtube


#51

I finally got some use out of my ribbon wire. I took jzerba2013 advice and checked out a twisted messes video and built a Tiger coil. It came out pretty good for the my 1st try. Here’s a couple pics.
Dual Coil 9 wraps 24G Nicrhrome & .4ml Ribbon Wire on a 3mm Screwdriver. Came out at .3 ohms.


#52

Very nice! I’ve seen the build for that one and it looked interesting. Let us know how it turns out!


#53

Man, that looks slick! :smile:


#54

Definitely my best build to date. Hits like a beast… even at low wattage.


#55

Nice, much thanks for sharing!


#56

I tried another new build called the Infiniti Coil.


#57

I got the wire in today. I figured the length of 2 lbs. 24 Gauge ER316L Welding Wire.
It weigh .74 grams per foot.
2 lbs. = 907.185 grams / .74 grams = 1225.926 ft.
That’s a lot of coils.


#58

Daaaaamn! :laughing:


#59

ROFL! Well you wont be running out anytime soon! I just got a couple more small rolls from amazon because i keep giving it away. Think ive sent out 10 or so envelopes and 50 feet at my local B&M.

Whew!!! Yes Sir that’s alot of coils,LOL. Thanks for doing the math for me, I was wondering myself.
