    No, you can get them and the correct crimper at just about any craft store that sells beading supplies :)

    Finally something I know something about! I've been using crimping beads like forever making jewelry with my torched worked glass beads. In my 'girl' opinion I wouldn't suggest buying the crimping tool. Just another tool you dont really need. The crimping tool is used for finished stringing on a necklace or bracelet which has allot more weight and needs to be perfectly crimped. You don't need a perfect crimp on your attys and theyll stay just fine. Just use a needle nose like us 'girls' did when the crimping tool wasn't around way back then. Hobby lobby usually has the crimps in sterling silver but wait until their 40% off. Watch for their silver jewelry sale which is about every 5 weeks or so.

    I just give up about this little crimping beads, they are like jumping beans, LOL. No fun for me playing with them. I just use silver paste solder and ready to go in a breeze.

    This is also a very good way to make the connections. Very solid when it works right, I run into issues with the solder not wanting to adhere to the kanthal most of the time. Every once in a while I get solder to hold, but usually it gets so hot that it melts the silver wire and breaks. Perhaps I am not using the right solder or flux, but I have gotten good and quite fast with crimping the wires so that's my go to method for now. Any insights would be good though. More excuses to break out tools :)

    Im using Silver Paste Solder Extra Easy, I got the hint from the user Smacker and like the name said is super easy, just a little of the paste on the wires and a one second hit with the torch and done. Never broken wires and more wick changes using the same wires.

    You will love it. I recommend you buy the bottom and top plastic parts, specially the top one, it could get lightly melt if there is a wrong setup. COV has them on stock currently.

    I'll keep that in mind, thanks. :)

    But if I build the coil right, and all or most of the resistance wire is in the ceramic cup, then i shouldn't have that issue.....right?

    You get all extra parts while you can, Riddle.

    Maybe none made in future then you will be SOL.

    Better safe now than sorry later :)

    I agree about getting replacements. I melted the top plastic once when the whole mod rolled and kept the button pressed down for who knows how long. Everything still worked afterwards but then all the liquid dumped into the ct cause the o rings on the ceramic had nothing to seal against. Tried to put a new groove in the plastic for the oring but it was a no go. It was definitely due to murphys law cause I had placed an order for the top plastic moments before all that.

    I'd go with 30 gauge, the dead soft .999 pure silver wire is what I have used since iAtty came out, and it has worked wonderfully. Sterling Silver is as good, and usually a bit cheaper too.

    Yes, if you get all the res wire in the cup, you will be fine (don't do any drastic dry burns and you will be fine)

    Imeo, is good about providing parts for all his creations, even when they are "discontinued" items. You shouldn't have to worry about getting parts later, but it is especially nice to keep a replacement on hand of those two pieces, just in case, something happens :)

    Congrats, iAtty was my favorite, and served me flawlessly! Mine is now in the possession of my best friend, he's borrowing it, until he can save up and get an Odysseus :)
