Coil Building Show Offs (Part II)

#61

Previous shots I’ve taken in the old thread were mainly taken using a clip on macro for my phone.

This picture for example was using a 34mm macro clip on that had a removable 34mm lense to reveal a macro lense underneath.

But other pictures were using the cheap clip on macro’s £3/$5

I felt like creating a coil that could give Satan a sunburn, so here ya go my fellow metal heads, a chain link coil made from 28g SS316L claptoned in 36g SS316L, and then flattened for even more surface area. Single coil 5/6 wrap on a 4mm post, barely fit in the tsunami, and yes the top cap fit lol but after 3 hits idk if my drip tip will unscrew ever again…

I got crafty and busted out my wifes camera, I might have to encourage her to buy a macro lense :grinning:

This is my first attempt at coil porn, only a touch of digital enhancements, I promise.

The coil is a SS clapton plat, 3 strands of 26 with 32 wrap.

I like building with 38g and 40g I think the claptons look real sharp, but I noticed that they get guncked up real quick. So I have been using 32 - 36 gauge.

Not showing off really and not particularly difficult to build… it’s a quadruple twisted 4XAWG34 Ni80, but it works well, it’s fast and cloudy! Half an hour work with wires just lying there doing nothing… :+1::rofl:

I dont know why i did it to my self but i did a 5 loop braid out of 36g ni80 then claptoned it on 28g ss and paralleled it with a 9 loop braid out of 36g ni80
She very low at .08ohm and can only be run in a duel battery mod with good batts.

How’s the vaping experience with such coil pr0n? Don’t you have to juice that up really well for a reasonable vape?
Looks pretty cool though
