    Basic coiling/wicking on the Steam Crave RDTA (6ml), with 24 ga. Kanthal wire, Koh Gen Do organic Japanese cotton. Dual vertical coils, 7 wraps, paralleled at .35 ohms. Nothing fancy just quick easy step by step. No fancy coiling here....
    Old Coils out, new wire going in:

    First coil trimmed, 2nd coil loaded making SURE they are inside the inner circle deck:

    Trimmed and straightened:

    Dry firing to remove any oils, before tweaking with ceramic tweezers:

    Piece of organic cotton cut, before removing thin outer (tougher) layers:

    Roll tip (just long enough to poke through) of cotton then pull through with tweezers:
    [​IMG]

    Pull through by hand with medium resistance rolling to get in, but not compress:
    [​IMG]

    Cut top as close to coil as possible to prevent charring when using:

    Both wicks in, roughly trimmed before fluffing up with tweezers:
    [​IMG]

    Fluff and stuff. Do NOT pack, just cover 4 holes in deck plate:

    Saturate wicks/coils, fill tank, assemble with House Blend .................

    Thanks FV, not the best coils, not the worst, but it sure works good with ZERO hassles.
