    Hi All,

    I have a Narda clone on the way, it'll be my first RBA. I would like to make a 316L coil around 1ohm. I'm trying to plan the gauge and internal diameter. I'd like to use a 26 gauge for its hardiness, but maybe thinner would be better? And the internal diameter, what is a balanced size? Not so small that it dries out the wick and not so big that it's sloppy...
    Judging from the videos I've watched, the inside of this thing looks tiny. Would it be tough to fit a 1ohm ss coil in a restricted space?

    I use a 2.38mm(3/32") drill bit for wrapping my coils, not too big, not too small, for me they're just right. Currently running dual 24 guage coils at .3 so each coil individually is a .6ohm coil. If you use 26 guage and a 2.38mm ID then you will be doing about 8 wraps which should fit just fine in your atty.

    Check out Steam Engine to calculate your coil builds. Its a great tool for building.

    Thanks, that sounds like a very reasonable starting point. I was looking at steam engine and my values were kinda wonky, which prompted me to ask

    In my Narda, I have a 9 wrap, 1.5 mm I'D, N80 coil. Comes in at .8 ohms. Nice flavor. Next coil I'll probably do a 3mm coil and try to center it with "X" wicking. Instead of doing it diagonally.
