    Preparation for the GP Spheroid:

    Use the Spheroid fork or the end of the needle nose pliers tips to remove base and turn clockwise (it has reverse threading) to remove the base:

    Clean all parts in warm water and thoroughly dry and re-assemble the lower base back onto the main base anti-clockwise (it has reverse threading) you should now have this:

    Before starting make sure your hands are clean as anything on them like grease etc will be going onto the wire/wick and filler.....you don't want that.

    Building the GP Spheroid:

    Step 1: Cut a bit of Juwel filter polypad too the size of 2.5cm x 4.5cm, Cut a bit of 3mm silica wick at 5cm length, Cut some 0.2 Kanthal at 10cm length

    [​IMG]

    Step 2: Get your tweezers and hold the wick and torch it using your blowtorch or lighter, this should burn of any impurities on the wick:

    [​IMG]

    Step 3: Hold the 0.2 Kanthal and torch the coil with your blowtorch or lighter until glowing red, this will make the wire less springy and easier too handle:

    Step 4: Fold the 3mm silica wick in half to make a lasso:

    [​IMG]

    Step 5: Get a paperclip or pin and hold the wick against it (gives you a more secure holding of the wick and wire when coiling) :

    [​IMG]

    Step 6: Wrap the 0.2 Kanthal around the wick four times (gives around 1.8ohms), Wires should end up under the wick and facing opposite from each other:

    [​IMG]

    Step 7: Place the wick/coil between the two posts in a diagonal position:

    [​IMG]

    Before step 8: Decide whether you want more throat hit or less throat hit, the higher the coil the more throat hit, the lower the coil between the posts the less throat hit (very marginal though)

    Step 8: Position your coil where you want it to be (as per above) and hold in place then wrap the end of the legs around each screw/nut and tighten up to secure the wires in place:

    [​IMG]

    Step 9: Once the wires are secured wiggle the end of each wire too give a clean snap from each screw/nut:

    [​IMG]

    Step 10: Attach the base too a device to make sure all resistances are fine and do some dry burns to make sure each wrap of coil is heating up evenly, if they ain't adjust until they do:

    [​IMG]

    Step 11: Take your spheroid bell top and wrap the 2.5cm x 4.5cm Juwel filter polypad around it, not tight and not too loose:

    [​IMG]

    Step 12: Place the spheroid shell around the bell top and screw into place trying to make sure no Juwel filter is on the thread of the bell top:

    [​IMG]

    Step 13: Make some adjustments of the Juwel filter to make sure it is nicely and equally fitted into the spheroid shell and nothing is blocking the center tube:

    [​IMG]

    Step 14: Choose your chosen juice and fill up a syringe (i prefer syringe) and insert the syringe down the side of the Juwel filter right too the bottom and fill up (i get around 2.5 too 3ml of juice).....once you see the top of the Juwel filter full of juice stop filling, if you have over done it get some tissue and soak up the overfill:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Step 15: Put some of the chosen juice on your wick and make sure you have no hot spots and that all is looking good:

    [​IMG]

    Step 16: Get your base and with your fingers hold the lasso upwards and screw the base into the top part so that the lasso touches the fully juiced Juwel filter:

    [​IMG]

    Step 17: All done and you can now vape away on one of the best tasting attys:

    Hope this helps
