    I love that little stand he is using to build. Anybody know where to get one?

    I always did the bunny ear kayfun style method until my spate of dry hits last winter. Now I want to see I'm clear of the wick slots.

    I'll have to look at the video. I have 3 Roses so I use those stands. Also the Ubertoot clones came with building stands. Fasttech has threaded atty stands you can buy, too. Just read the description to be sure you're buying a threaded one. After wrecking the 510 on an ohmmeter I stopped using one for building and went to using a stand.

    He either made that or found someone who did. Maybe Google atty stands and see if you can find one like it.

    He's wicking the same as I've been doing the past few months, pushing it back with a screwdriver.

    I had the same problem. But fix it by wicking different. i stopped using the bunny ears method.
    i now do this:
    Run the cotton through the coil
    push the cotton down to deck making a crease in the cotton
    cut the cotton on the crease
    add alittle juice to the cotton(not to much as i top fill my lemo v1 n if i add to much the lemo floods(only on the first fill) and i have to clean out the base.) then form the cotton to the deck
    put the barrel on
    use a really small flat head screw driver and push right into the juice channel to make sure its clear
    then put the lemo together and fill.

    this method has done me super well as the cotton is always perfect on the deck. + dealing with the flooding on the first fill is way better than having to break down the build and re-wicking. one year lemo user and still loving it.

    are you using the post holes or are you trapping the leads directly under the screws?

    So far I've found it easier to trap under the screws. The post holes would probably be better though for a parallel coil (which I had trouble trapping under the screws, but managed) or for twisted/Claptons.

    Call me crazy, but I did get 26/32 'UD' Clapton wire, 9 wraps on 2.5mm (and took a lot of Dink'in around to get it secured) to fit under the screws on my Lemo Drop. I had to crank up the power, of course, but it worked well (not the 'S' wicking but cut to just lay on the top of the deck and pushed back away from the juice holes). Not worth the trouble though, I use 30g 'UD' Twisted most of the time now, trapped under the screws. The post holes are just too fiddly for me and my arthritis, tried the post holes once and about had a heart attach mess'in around with my coil symmetry afterwards, I just got up and walked away for awhile. I just don't have the motor skills I once had I guess.

    A Clapton actually might be easier, especially if you unwrap some of the 32. Did you do that or put the whole thing under the screws? I did have trouble getting 2 strands of 26 under them.

    I just put the whole thing under the screw heads, lubed the wire with juice, and took some needle nose pliers and pinched the wire around the screw shaft as I tightened them up.

    Edit; Screw shaft, Screw Threads I guess is a better explanation.

    Trapping twisted is easier when you split the lead and trap one lead under each side of the screw then twist them back together around the screw. Wish I had pictures. Used to do it all the time in the Little boy RDA.

    That's how I do dual stacked coils in other attys :)

    That sounds like it could be a bit fiddly, but once done would be a very secure connection. I might try that, just for the hey.
