    A pin vise is about the most perfect device for winding coils. And it's been used by line engineers in the telecom industries for decades. An inexpensive example if you want to try one (available also on eBay and elsewhere)…

    It allows you to wind with tension directly from the spool which negates the need to torch or compress. You can simply pulse the wire on your ...

    Well I appreciate that observation on the flaring because it's been a seriously annoying problem with both the original and aftermarket replacements I've found. But since I realized the significant likelihood of 510 shorts with incidental ground and moisture ...

  3. The Minimalist's Tensioned Contact (Micro) Coil

Not much, maybe one wrap's worth, but it also decreased the overall tightness of my coil. I think I honestly get tighter coils from cutting the wire, annealing it, and hand-wrapping it. My coils touch all

  5. Kanger Protank Aero Airflow Base

    I've just concluded a week-long study of several of the following…

    KangerTech AeroTank Base


    which I've passed along the suite of PT1, 1.5 + 2 I use personally and for wick/coil testing.

    Although I was exceptionally skeptical that something that could constrain the already miserly and minuscule air feeds of the KPT's might enhance them, I am utterly flabbergasted that it does.

    Perhaps it is some kind of venturi effect of air being forced from a ...
