    they also light up at different rates than the rest of your cores, and kind of act like staged heating. you can really fine tune performance and resistance of your builds through all the possible variations of material and the gauge and number of strands you use.


    lots of good work over the last few pages everyone :cheers:

    Just thought i‘ll try to Mess around with my old Tsunami 24 Glass Window. The goal was Not to create a tidy porn worthy coil but get as much out of the kennedy airflow.

    So i decided to do a double barrel vertical build. At first i wanted to make some Alien wire, but then made some SFC with 24G and 36G N80

    Then coiled them over two 4mm rods 4 wraps and installed them.
    They turned out @0.11 Ohms.

    What Should I say... the Tsunami turned into a vaping Devil, chucks Clouds like Crazy with really good Flavour. Vaping them @130 Watts.

    Got Not a Single dry Hit or cotton taste, i get around 10 Hits before the cotton gets too dry.

    I finally dusted off my old iron vapin edition plume veil, polished it up a bit, polished my mod a bit, and I'm liking the look. I'm usually the first to say fuck aesthetics but that's perdy right thur. Looking forward to an even patina coming in. The coils I can't take credit for. My boy John who owns Vid's Vapor here in carson hooked me up with them to see how they perform. He calls me his mech head and coil guy. He got a bunch of these premade ss coils and wanted my take on them. I don't know the specifics but it's a tri-core fc. I want to say 32g cores with a 38g wrap. Flavors great, heats very decent. I'm liking it. I do have to say that as much as I'm liking this 26650 mech, I miss my Lucifer. I miss the raw 8.4 v of raw power a series mod can throw around. I've been considering getting the Wismec noisy cricket with the upgrade kit but I'm thinking I need to buckle down and spend a few late nights finishing my mod. Nothing so far touches the heat, flavor, and satisfaction a series mod with a beefy coil provides.

    I'm in the process of building my own wooden 18650 series box mod from scratch but I need something in the meantime. I've had my eye on the noisy cricket from Wismec with the upgrade kit. I've owned 3 Lucifer mods over the last couple years...all of which have broken/melted/etc. I "Frankensteined" one out of all the usable Lucifer parts and that lasted for a while. Bottom line...I need a relatively inexpensive series mod and short of the Lucifer clone and Noisy Cricket I can find nothing. Any information on a specific model or distributor would be appreciated. Or...if any of you have a series mod laying around you don't use and would be open to sale or trade I'd be happy to talk to you further as to what we could negotiate.

    check out the noisy cricket II. it can run in unregulated series, regulated series and unregulated parallel modes. it has some protections on it, like low battery cutoff and it wont fire below .2 in unregulated series, or too much below .1 in parallel. theres a 22 or 25mm version, its tough as nails, and its pretty cheap. :cheers:

    Great minds think alike! I just offered a trade for an NC2-25 on his other thread in the mech section. :D

    My boy at Vids said he was looking at stocking the cricket 2 and wanted me to check it out to see if they're worth it. I'd be interested in trading you Brody I'm just a cheap bastard with limited vape equipment. The only things worth trading I have would be my buddha(v2?), my goon, and my diablo rta.

    Nothing spectacular compared to other builds I see on here but 3rd time building I used 32x26 gauge kanthal a1 Clapton wire it's nothing special but I feel pretty satisfied with how it puts out for my 3rd time its about as strong as the tfv8 baby beast. They came out so good I didn't even have to manipulate the shape after wrapping because the ohms of each coil matched and the center to outer heat up spread was perfect and they were heating up at about the same rate of speed maybe one was heating up milliseconds faster than the other

    Fancy builds don't necessarily give a fancy vape. Use whatever build is best for YOUR vaping style. In fact, many people prefer a simple spaced Clapton coil over other builds.

    I second crazy chef. It's about your enjoyment. Whatever gets and keeps you off the cancer sticks is good in my eyes. Nice work BTW, glad you decided to stick about after your previous post too :)

    I like 5 Core Aliens and Alien Staggs (both are 5x28g/36g SS 4 Wraps/3mm ID) over just about anything else...but Im also a full mech user and that plays a major part

    Messin' around with some square wire today just because it's been here a while and I really haven't done much with it..

    0.3x0.3 N80.

    [​IMG]


    Made a couple of fused Clapton coils

    [​IMG] [​IMG]


    Then a 6 core version

    [​IMG] [​IMG]


    Easily enough for a couple coils, but not sure what yet. It's pretty low in resistance, so I may end up with a couple single installation coils.

    Haven't built anything in a week or two because I've been so busy. This is my first time using anything over 40g. Also my first time wrapping a ribbon build at full speed on my corded drill. Pretty happy with the results but there are a few spots where the wrap is a little thin/spaced. Any suggestions on how to make the wrap tighter? I assume I just need a tighter angle but I didn't want to wrap over itself.

    2x28g ss316l, 8x0.3 ss316l ribbon, 44g n80 wrap. Ohms at 0.07 and is vaping great at 80w/485f on my triade DNA250. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    It's probably pretty good for aesthetics, but...
    Save your money. A regular fused Clapton vapes better. And an equivalent (18 ply) staple coil will vape much better than the 6 core I did.
    No worries - never even entered my mind that you were.

    Nice one for the update Chef. Much appreciated. I will probably still try it though as I was think of using it as a staggered center core and fusing ribbon either side of it.

    Yeah, I'm still thinking of maybe using it for frames of some sort. It has it's uses, but not necessarily as the star of the show.

    Ya I just want it for looks, think it'd be sweet to use inside staggered round wire wall for corrugated. Like in pic have it replace the 2 ply the corrugated is against[​IMG]

    Oh yeah - I said that 'cuz I tried a coil with the 6 core. 5/6 wrap 4.0mm ID. Put it in a Govad. It vapes okay, but not great. Definitely not as good as a standard staple coil with the equivalent mass.

    Do you just know this from experience? I'm wondering how you got to this. I only know to use 3 cores of whatever gauge the decore is. I would really like to know for myself how to figure out what size decore I need for aliens. If I want a 4 core alien do I just find the surface area of the cores and divide by 3 to find the decore size?

    I know because raymo told me, we chat a little bit
    My experience is from people like raymo tho and some trial and error of my own. I'm making a tsuka now which it in nature is you guessing going "ehhhhhh that's about rightish ish ish"
    Also my experience with aliens is ... That 3:1 chart is for when your new. As time goes on you find what gauge you use and what material you use for the alien can be manipulated ALOT. A 3:1 1.2 would suggest 26G decore but I know that 40G SS alien is very pliable so 24G decore is easier them trying for a perfect stretch off what a chart says.
    4x 28G also is technically a 26G decore but we all use 24G decore, so yes 5x 28G is 22g decore because raymo made 80,000,000 aliens then said so... I believe him

    Sorry guys...just been insanely busy the last few weeks with a few things and I apologize for not getting back to you sooner.

    I use 22g for the 5 core 28g cores as mentioned previously (thanks @Jriley)

    You can use 24g but its a pain in the dick, make sure to go slow and bit by bit with a ribbon slider or core holder
