    Will do. I guess I've been wrapping on such huge bases for so long the direction didn't matter! Thanks for the reminder! Will try tomorrow and post results.

    Again it looks to me like they are trying to wrap the screws backwards. It is always easier to get the screw to capture the wire when you wrap it in the proper direction. Thanks for the link Toby.☺

    Haven't touch that built in weeks now.... Still enjoying my vape with Kayfun. I'm a bit hesitant to get back to it from my last try because it was too nasty for my taste... Looking at my Nautilus Mini with that build with the now old juice that I put in there. I still think that I need to push my wick down to the holes to avoid over-floating. I'll give it another try and get back to you folks. I put a 26g Ti coil in there running TC exclusively.

    Ok... I filled up the the deck with extra wick on my previous Ti built, away from the air hole. This wick is not linked to the coil. I put it there just to prevent over floating, pushing it to the side holes with a needle so I can see some wick there. Got a powerful vape in TC, no gurgling whatsoever... It's a working quick fix, although I thing that if the wick going through the coil can be pouch down to these holes, the result would be better. It's not bad at all... as I'm puffing on it... It's getting a bit weaker now but it seems that I can work my way around that little nice piece of engineering. Still work in progress but it's not so bad actually.

    Edit just to say that I'm having a good vape on it.. The build can be improved a bit but I'm enjoying it so far.

    Well, I still owe everyone here an update... Maybe Friday!

    Thanks for the tips that will be very helpful when I build it again. Mine did seize to the chimney when I took it apart the other day.

    I was enjoying my vape so far until I decided to change my wick... I noticed before that the coil like to stay screw to the chimney rather than the base. I've been using a little tool to unscrew the coil from the chimney because my big fingers cannot get in there. Except that this time, the glass tank broke from the top... I think this happened because of the thick top seal added and the not so gentle way I handled the issue. So I'm back to my Kayfun until I order a glass replacement glass. It was good though.... the vape was like it should be with the Nautilus Mini, smooth, warm and tasty.

    Update. I'm not spending any more time on this. I'm done. The kanger mini rba it hitting massive flavor and the derringer is fantastic. I'm keeping my nautilus minis for stealthy vaping. Perfectly happy buying coils on occasion over building on this tiny, ill-designed mistake that requires tank modification.

    No blame on that... I got my Nautilus Mini just worse than just retired with that setup. It's just dead and useless now. I got a one time good vape after I broke my glass tank just to change my wick. The blame is on me too but this RBA is just killing the Nautilus tanks from my stand point, period! I got better results rebuilding the factory coils. As yourself, I have better to deal with for now. I will eventually get back to it once I order that glass part (or a couple of them)... I just like my Nautilus and want to have it to work.

    Neat little upgrade for an already good tank. Too tiny for these old hands though:D

    Back in stock :)

    Tip:
    If you have trouble fixing the wire to the screws, it's easier to use thinner gauge wire like 0.15mm or 0.2mm.
