    That may be a viable technique, wire wrap style tool. I'll have to think on it a bit. As far as why I don't want extremely close and tight wraps goes, I don't do RBA at all, I rebuild bottom coil and top coil devices, a whole different animal where spacing becomes critical to fill the atomizer chamber.

    Ah ... understandable. I do some micro coil rebuilds on a Kangertech Pro 2 and and IGO W. Having a tool would help out if you wanted to turn out a bunch of them and store them away to have on hand though.

    Yeah, it gets to be a pain in the butt holding wraps "just so" then re-arranging the coil afterwards so it fits properly. I'm a little older and not as steady as I used to be and need to work with a loupe when I'm winding and welding, so a tool to make wrapping easier would be a really handy thing.

    See my hypo pictures.
    A little notch cut in the clamp grabs a leg, then you roll the needle.

    Myk, where are the pictures? Again, though, with a wick and the needle, rolling it may prove pretty problematic. The thing that bothers me is how far away from the wick/stabilizer the "hook" needs to be to achieve the desired tightness of wrap. Some experimentation is in order. Maybe I can rig a way for the hook to be on a 2-56 screw so it's adjustable for various wire sizes. I typically use 32, 33 and 34 which makes it hard for a "one size fits all" setup.

    I don't do too bad for 50+ but I tie flys so my fingers are used to the small stuff. It's the -eyes- that make me cranky. I've got to use my 5x fly tying glasses for some coils. Anyway, if I come up with something I'll post it up.

    Yeah, I use 5X myself and when things get too bad I add the 2.5x glasses to that, LOL.

    Air pump needle. Works great and can be squished together as tight as you can get it. Works great on a PT head because it fits inside the cup and that ensures that you'll keep the coil nice and centered.

    My multimeter lead has been doing a great job.
