    Hell, if you want to be a minimalist, sure you need nothing but kanthal, something to wrap it on, and screw it to the post. But it is more fun with toys. You don't need to torch it, dry burning is fine. You don't need to cut it, wiggling it will break it easily from under the post. My Kayfun even came with the screwdriver needed. But for me coil building is just another aspect of the hobby and I enjoy it. Things that are fun, you tend to purchase more toys.

    Shame on you chadsmo, not cool taking their side. And you are knocking on the door to needing those readers or headgear....trust me as I am only a few years ahead of you.

    edit - deleted useless comparison statement to items in women's purse, men should learn don't argue with women, you never win. :facepalm:

    My ears are going downhill faster than id like after 20 years of being addicted to loud Metal , but thankfully the eyesight (with glasses but I've worn those my whole life) and steady hands are going strong.

    Haha, that is what I said. My hearing is still great, sense of smell and taste...awesome. Everything else, eh, not so much. My first back surgery was at 37 and ppfffffftttt, slide down that hill. haha Nah, really this is the first year I really had to use the readers (44). FYI, my glasses and contact script, still the same for 20 years or more. Just that now I have to lift my glasses to see up close.....that is what gets you!

    And hell yeah, being a teen of the 80s, I listened to metal, was the first era. Now, I can handle about one or two songs, once in a blue moon of Judas Priest or Quiet Riot. But I have always been a fan of jazz and blues, just more so now.

    OMG>>>>>.... that is some scary stuff there! Glad my metal phase passed before this stuff came out. I would have nightmares after that concert. See, it happens, you turn into your parents. Wasn't a lie to scare you.

    AWESOME! Thanks for changing your avatar. Man, I just couldn't rag you, looking at me with that uniform on. Knitting needles?? haha....sorry. It was tough enough adding that artsy swirly thing to my Amazon cart. I am sure they work great though. Just had to toss out one at you.

    Drill bits definitely are a little more on the 'rough and tumble' side of things lol, but whatever works works.

    I've actually been using the same exact piece of kanthal to pull wicks through coils for over a year.

    Honestly I thought it worked better, but went back to rolling it and just sticking it through by hand. Just faster for me.
