    I've been really experimenting with hive wire because I saw how well it preformed in comparison to Clapton wire. I honestly would love an all nichrome 28g 36g. I'm not really liking the ramp up time of the kenthal Claptons I've got. Truth be told.. I think a regular macro nichrome 24 guage out performs the Claptons ive bought.

    I am in serious need of a drill, I've been hand twisting everything. Money has been super tight, I'm a recovering addict alcoholic as some of you know, and I've got to make do with what I can get my hands on. I love coil making and everything about vaping. It's kept me occupied and sober.

    Anyway until I get a drill these are about as advanced as I can go.

    First and last would be the micro, there incredibly hard to quick due to the wire twisting method. Very rough wire.

    Please dont take this as me being a dick, Im not trying to be...

    With your coils you should try to get them either spaced or contact. It seems you have mostly spaced but there are a few spots it looks like they contact each other. This can lead to hot spots and bad taste, burned cotton.

    Cheap drills can be had on Amazon, Harbor Freight hel even walmart. I think I paid around 25 bucks for mine that I use for coiling.

    Usually when people say there not trying to be a dick that's exactly what there trying to be.

    That being said I don't think your being a dick. I'm all about learning. The hive wire needed a blow torch. I figured it out. I just didn't have a blow torch. I got a super cheap one.

    Since ive really been practicing I've gotten much better. My internet is slow or I'd upload some more pics.
