    I see that Wire Wizard in SteamEngine can provide a unique TFR curve specific to a Clapton build.

    I'm planning to try some SS316L fused claptons when my Daedalus Pro arrives next week, so just wondering if the specific TFR's for Claptons work better than the standard SS316L TFR I've been using for simple wire builds?

    Does anyone bother setting the TFR specifically for their builds in this way? If so is it noticeably better than using the standard TFR?

    I noticed in the thread:
    Starting to make my own coils

    That you mentioned using SS316L fused claptons in TC mode.

    Do you find the TC works well with the standard TFR / TCR (depending on what mod you're using) or do you make any adjustments as per Wire Wizard in SteamEngine?

    I've always just used what's programmed in the mod. Spaced coils of course.

    I used one coil made of 28awg ss/32 awg ss that came out to around .65 ohm on a DNA mod and on a pico mod. Both mods worked fine with the built in settings for SS

    Tfr/tcr is based on the material so it shouldn't really change due to coil type.

    According to Wire Wizard in SteamEngine the TFR / TCR values and therefore the TC accuracy are effected / changed by the use of multi wire exotic coils.

    I just wasn't sure if this would lead to a 1% or 10% inaccuracy. From the responces it looks likely that the inaccuracy is very small and not worth adjusting for.

    Might depend on the wire. What I used for clapton wire, both were SS316L. If it is multiple wire types, SS and Kanthal it might differ. But I think the core wire is all that matters in using it in TC
