Continued from Part 1 (http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/for...le-part-1.html)...

Feed the leads into the head and pinch the cotton against the sides of the head to hold the coil in optimal position...

Gently fold over one of the wire leads and pinch against the side with the cotton. Feed the other lead through the rubber grommet and squeeze, pinch, curse and push the grommet into the head. One wire lead should be between the grommet and the head and the other lead through the center of the grommet...

Gently fold over the other wire on the opposite side and insert the pin. Clip the loose wires with a nail clipper as close to the grommet as possible (any wire that is sticking out could cause a short). Use a small screwdriver to adjust the coil if it is not perfectly centered.

Trim the cotton so it sticks a few mm out each side and fluff with something small (I use my smallest micro screwdriver)

Fluffing fills the openings with happy little cotton clouds.

Press the chimney back on and one last thing to do

Check your resistance (Ohms) to ensure you got what you were aiming for and to ensure there are no shorts ( wire broken or touching the inside of head or chimney). If it reads good on a Multi-meter, Mod or Ohm Meter (pictured) you are good to go!

Just what I was aiming for!

Vape on and enjoy.

    I've read that some people use the plastic zip ties or something flat and 2 to 3 mm wide to wrap microcoils on making them oval shaped. That way you can hold the coil in place using the tool it was wrapped on as you install the grommet and pin then wick it with cotton afterward. I haven't tried this yet but the next time I rebuild a coil I'm going to give it a shot and see how it works... maybe I'll make a part 3 for this type of build if it works well.

    Nicely to the point tutorial. I'll definitely bookmark this for when I get around to building a single on the Aerotank. Duals are such a pain to rebuild on a non-RBA.
