  1. Hello, I have looked around and surprisingly, I have been unable to find an explanation for this question. In looking through forums, as well as using "vapers toolbox" everyone seems to be using fractions to describe the wraps of the coils. For an example, vapers toolbox will say "your coil should use a 2/1 wrap to get as close as possible to your target resistance". Can someone explain to me what this fraction represents? I have given this much thought, but unfortunately the answer is still elusive me. Thank you in advance!

    it's a half wrap, such that a 6/7 for example looks like 6 from beneath and 7 from the top.

    ^^^ What he said. It's not really fractions. The first number is always 1 higher (or lower?) than the second number.

    So 7/6 (or 6/7) means 6½ wraps ... sort of.
  4. Perfect. Its all so clear now. No Idea how I didn't catch on to that. Thank you for your assistance!

    Jason Anonny, you were not alone! I always look at them from the top so I always read 6/7 or 7/6 as 7 and until now was clueless as to why. Thank you for asking and thanks to supertrunker and Dampmaskin for answering.
