    I'd like to think if someone is using a mech they would know to test it before firing it up. But that would be giving too much credit though wouldn't it?

    I just wanted to post a simple coil build for noobs. How many times do we walk people through builds or troubleshoots? Especially on the Kayfun thread. Maybe getting it in a pictorial will spare us the energy.

    I think it was a good tutorial easy to follow and very clear. Good job

    Excellent job Bronze and Papaw. As far as the inside diameter is concerned. I have to go with Papaw. Anything over 1/16th inside diameter is a mini coil. All my Reo's are done at 1.5mm ID. 10 wraps of 28 gauge give me around 1.2 ohms. Perfect for this old man.
    And I don't sub ohm either. Tried a 0.3 ohm once. Lost all the hair on my head. (whoops, didn't have any there to start out with.).

    So purely by the physical constraints of the most popular RTA out there, using the most common wire, building it at the most common resistance, I would think right around 2mm would then be considered the "standard" size since it's just right to fit in there (takes a deep breath so therefore, that's why I wouldn't consider 2mm to be a microcoil.

    No offense to your nice tutorial - I'm just sayin'
    Microcoil has become more synomynous with the type of build rather than the size , most ECF veterans accept anything with an ID of 2mm and compressed as being a microcoil , since there is no standard I wouldn't buck the common usage of the term on ECF unless you like jousting with windmills .

    2mm would fall under "mini" which is something like 2.5 mm down to 1.6. "Micro" is 1.5 to 1.1, and "nano" is ~1mm.
    the way I see it, nano is too small to pull cotton thru, micro is too small to pull to pull silica thru and macro is big enuf to pull silica or cotton thru..... example nano = needle, micro = micro screwdriver, macro = 10 wraps = 5 ohms


    awesome post Bronze !!!! if a picture is worth a 1000 words, you just wrote an awesome book

    Seems the less words and the more pictures the better, huh?
