    Give the cotton four or five good dry burns in the coil then put another 2-3 drops on it, should clean it right up!

    Thrasher,
    As you live down in Fla, you could slide over to the surf and catch him one of those big crabs. He would then have two of them strong "pincher" tools to use. It is always good to have a spare.

    so i have never been able to bring myself to read more than a few sentences from any GN post, however I can spend hours going through some good threads... the Post pictures of your working wick and coil setup mainly filled by xobeloot and pdib, and others... its entertaining, and informative, this... well is mostly entertaining you guys, not him...

    rebuilding really is simple, hell everything related to this hobby is simple, it just requires a small amount of studying first... and hell if not, as long as you stick to the side of caution... trial and error...

I'm really liking it! Just using it how it was set up put of the package, but it seems to be working well, and I'm enjoying it!

    So using some of the links and information provided to, and ignored by GN, I've ordered some rebuilding materials and an Igo L, and we'll see what happens!

    Lemonade from Lemons kids. All of your suggestion haven't completely fallen on deaf ears, they just haven't opened the ears they were intended for!
    Ditto. Or kind of. All of this got me interested in rebuilding my Kanger T3 heads. I really don't care for the flavor of cotton, which I had tried before, so I did choose silica.

    But hey. Some torched 32 gauge Kanthal A1 later, I have a pile of functional rebuilt heads that actually work better than the factory original. I just tested one to destruction (actually, until the flavor went kind of nasty) and it works great.

    i have loved all of my own rebuilt kanger heads, i have found i prefer the cotton, but instead of arguing with you, i will leave it at to each their own...

    funny story to why i ended up switching to cotton though... i was having (still do) trouble wrapping around the silica... going to try a thin needle behind the silica next time (my wife doesnt want to mess with cotton, there is one cotton coil waiting for her but she hasnt used it) my kanger rebuild of choice is the bsd vertical coil... running a vertical micro coil at 1/16th with cotton wrapped around it...

    Clearly you're working for Big Cotton.

    :-)

    It's personal preference. Even thoroughly cleaned cotton has an unusual flavor to me. Silica tastes like nothing. Everybody's mileage varies.

    I stick a sewing pin through the silica to stiffen it and increase the diameter. Once you wrap and pull the pin, the wires loosen a little bit to leave some room for liquid expansion.

    T3s are neither particularly large nor particularly small as these things go, so I can get a 6/5 wrap of 32 gauge Kanthal A1 in there for around 2.2 ohms or so. Occasionally I miscount and end up with a 5/4 and 1.8 ohms. As measured on my meter, or another thing the OP should purchase for $10 from Harbor Freight or something. :-)
