    I have a question and would love some insights, experiences etc.
    I'm wondering what the differences in flavor, warmth, and vapor production between a dual single coil build, and a twisted single coil build with the same resistance?
    I know that both

I took the data from the wraps and ohms in the first post by nerak for 28GA, 30GA and 32GA, graphed the data and came up with an equation for wraps vs. Ohms with my trusty ol' TI-84. It should do the job if you use a 1/16 bit or anything very similar to that. The reasoning behind that is the majority of the data came from wraps around 1/16 bits.

    All you have to do is input

Taking it directly off the spool like that meant that I couldn't anneal it first, so when I cut the wire after getting approximately the number of wraps I wanted, the tension in the wire caused it to partially unwind from the screwdriver. 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

    Here's an even easier way to do it without pliers and heat and produce a tighter micro

    That term does get used some, but I don't think it's caught on much outside ECF like Supe's term micro did. Instead, the big reviewers were calling
