    A friend is requesting to make a clapton/fused/alien coil using Ss for temp control. Problem is, there's no easily accessible supplier if thin gauge Ss wraps here in the Philippines. Will an ss core and nichrome wrap?

    Is it even possible to make an alien for temp control?

    Does that have a nichrome wrap? Seems like the label shows it's full Ss fused clapton

    Can't you just use SS cores and kanthal for the outer wraps and get pretty much the same outcome?

    That's what I'm curious about, if using a non tc wire as a wrap with tc core still work properly in tc. I have kanthal and nichrome wrap available

    I'm not 100% sure on that. But if you did try it, it would probably work better with NI200 in the middle, unless you want to try burn then you can't use NI200

    yeah, I don't think you'd want to use anything but SS for claptons(in TC mode)..even the spaced coils I've used needed hot-spots worked out

    So it's the same with ni200? You can't dry burn Ss?

    You can dry burn SS and Kenthal

    You can't dry burn NI200 or Titanium

    I'm nor sure about Nichrome or Nife though

    SS can be used in power mode, so dry burning isn't an issue

    I'm using 316L stainless aliens right now and they are great in TC. It seems I need to bump the temp up from 400 to 430 on my DNA but that's not an issue.

    I didn't make them, they were made by one of our resident coil wizards @raymo2u but as far as I know they are all stainless.

    Maybe he will drop by and help out.

    Will a ss core with n80 wrap work in temp control? A friend is asking me to make some fused Claptons and aliens for him but couldn't find thin gauge wire Ss for my wraps.

    Its works with SS Mode for most devices using Kanthal or N80 wrap though. Some devices are really picky so if you have issues its best to pull some of the wrap off for the posts to get the best connection for the cores but you can try it with the wrap on it also and see.

    If you would like a great source for SS wire here is the LINK (500ft of 36g SS)

    I made a set of 26g SS316L/38N80 fused Clapton's that are working fine in SS TC on a Hohm Wrecker G2. So yes it can be done if you cannot get thinner SS where you live.
