..and there is my nice refurbished/rebuilt carto (repaired even if needed as well)
Now you want to take a paper clip and feed it through the air hole like you did with the sewing needle. VERY SLOWLY. VERY CAREFULLY. You will probably have to work it around a bit. Take your time, it will find the way eventually, and then you are sure you have an air stream. If you flat out can not get it through
Now you start stuffing the innards back into the tube. Notice the little tool I am using. This is a homemade feat of technical prowess and mastery. Ermm.. Well, it is a paperclip with a dab of solder on the end and the solder is flattened out well so it make a small blunt blade for stuffing wayward filler into the carto tube as needed. :)
Now get the carto started onto the connector and make
Now wrap that rectangle of cloth around the coil again from the center of the rectangle and make a two layer wrap around. Keep the tube at the top of the carto, and remember that this has to be the air way through the carto, so when wrapping, keep that in mind. Wrap as though you were leaving a tube in the middle of the cloth material. The top tube, the coil(lump heh) and the bottom connector tube all help form the airway in the middle
Now you see the revealed innards of the cartomizer. That woven tube is for air flow, keep it at the top, the thing that looks like a dark lump is actually your coil. You can spread that apart with your fingernail a TINY bit. Enough so it will get cleaned.
Now take all the parts of your cartomizer, filler, cloth, innards, tube and...
Drop them in a small
This is the filler material
Unwind it from the cartomizer slowly and carefully it will be a pain to find the start of it but I swear it is there someplace, just pick around for it.
Unwind it completely
Now you will get to a second inner material. This is a kind of cloth like material and it is a rectangular shape.
