    My best build so far on the doggy, 28g kanthal, 2mm ID, 7-8 wraps, around 1.1 ohm, slightly spaced, vaping at 12-13 watts. Its a small coil so vaper production is decreased but the flavor and draw is very nice.

    That's my coil of choice in everything I have. Works for me. As for spaced or touching, I make them on a Coilmaster and pull the legs to tighten it a bit. Then when installed I manipulate the coil until it starts to glow evenly across the coil, rather than that 'from the inside out' stuff. Whether it ends up touching or spaced at that point matters not a jot to me.

    I just got a doggy 18 and I built it. The chiney wouldnt come out. I wasnt sure if that was supposed to be that way but I built it anyways. I built it with a 26ga 3mm coil coming out about .5 ohms. Dang that thing was unbearably hot! I must have done something wrong or Im just not going to like this tank if its burning my lips. Tastes ok though before it gets hot.

    Lower your watts and try again. What's your watts at?

    I wonder if the wick is supposed to come out of the notch on the chimney.

    Spin the mouth piece until you see the wick in the 2 notches... This tank had liquid control.

    I suggest trying a 2 or 2.5mm coil and give it 6 to 8 wraps. Get it about 1 to 2 mm above the air inlet for best flavor too. It will give you more room between the screws. Did you open the liquid control?

    It looks like your coil is sitting too high? I can't tell for sure tho from your pic. Try rebuilding it with a 2 or 2.5mm coil.

    A nail in the right size makes a good impromptu coil winding tool. Some use coarse thread machine screws or bolts to produce a spaced coil. Buy a long one in the right diameter and coarse thread pitch at the hardware store and that gives you something to hold onto while you wrap. After you wrap, you just unscrew the threaded bolt from the coil.

    I've had a CoilMaster for years. I used it for a while when it was new. For me, it's faster and easier to wrap simple coils on a stepped mandrel. For those who do complex coils, it's probably a great investment.

    Doggie problem: I use short, plastic wide-bore tip on my Doggies. There is a problem with condensation pooling in the dished area just below the bottom of the tip. About once a day I get a yuck! taste from the condensated juice which requires removing the tip and sucking up the condensate with a wadded corned of a napkin. I'm not sure of a longer tip would make a difference. I try to stay away from metal mouth pieces.

    What is your experience? Any suggestions?

    Try a smaller coil, maybe try 28g instead of 26g if you have some.

    I use the same style tips and have the same problem if i do not keep on top of it. I just wipe it out with some rolled kitchen towel every day when i swap the tip to clean it. Kind of stops it before the problem has chance to start.
