    Just rebuilt 2 protanks with only mesh, 400 and 5 wraps of 32 kanthal. Something tells me I won't be touching my rbas for awhile :p

    One works amazing, the other still needs some fiddling. Almost as good as a rebuildable imho. [​IMG]

    Looks like I'm breaking out the kanthal and mesh. I need a couple more heads so i can play around. Thinking about getting in on this co-op for the heads since there so cheap

    It's very simple and doesn't take much playing around, you shouldn't need much more than 2 or 3 at most

    Are you getting any leaking into the air shaft? Thinking about trying this on mine.

    I gave this a shot for the first time last night, my first rebuild ever, and I think I ended up making the mesh too tight because I keep getting dry hits on it (TERRIBLE). going to try again and see if I can get it right. I think this is harder with the .5mm Kanthal than it would have been with a thinner wire, too. My first 3 tries all came out at 1.1ohm or less (too low for the VV mod I use). The final one I got to work was about 1.4ohm, which I could run, but if I tried to chain vape I'd get dry hits.

    Use 32 gauge with at least 5 wraps, should come out to 2 ohms minimum. If your getting dry hits or it is less than that, check to make sure none of the wires are touching eachother or the metal in the base. My problem was the leads from the shaft was touching the second wrap, causing a hot spot.

    There is virtually no leaking
