    Try running the chimney part under hot water. Or, just stick the whole thing in the freezer for a few minutes.

    This is hard to believe but the more force you use to take it apart the harder it will be to take it apart.
    Make sure it is clean of e-juice then keep gently trying to remove the chimney. I didn't believe this would work
    when mine was stuck but it did.

    Sorry I didn't have the time to read all 164 pages....
    I bought me a Lemo V1,so far so good.I can't get it to work quite as well as my Kayfun lite plus but it is working.I'm gonna have to play with this thing a bit more.One thing I've noticed is,it gets louder as one dials down the afc.Man it holds a fair bit of juice.

    The lemo is similar to the kayfun wicking style,but for the lemo,it takes a bit more wick.I always wrap my coils for the lemo on a 3mm mandrel,and after putting the wick through,and cutting to length,i screw the lower chimney on,wet the wick,and then use a small screw driver to push the wick so it doesn't block the juice channels.It takes a little time to get it working at it's full potential,but once you do,it will blow the kayfun away haha.

    Thanks B.M.,so far I've been doing pretty much as you've said except I'm using a much small diameter coil.Next coil I'll try a larger diameter.

    Edited to add - The air adjustment dial will take a bit to get used to,it's a tad finicky.LOL

    I can't remember what the resistance is on the stock coil that comes with it,but i used it for quite a while,and it was very nice.That's also what got me to stick with the 3mm too.Yeah,that little airflow part can be a pita haha,i would set it where i want it,then when screwing the bottom on,it would move it out of adjustment.

    .5 ohms and my Sigelei reads it consistently at .50 to .52, I just got mine last week so I've yet to build a coil for it, only re-wicked it just today.

    My bad, mine is the LEMO2 if that makes a difference.

    I haven't tried the lemo 2,but i think your right,i believe the regular one comes with a .5 too.

    Still stuck although it budges a little before stopping. I've tried the freezer, hot water, a torch, etc, and just can't get it off.

    Great Review Best I've seen so far! Comparison with the Kafun is Right On! The Build and Photos are Great!

    I put my Lemo's & Lemo 2's aside for Trying Many New Tanks. Just took my Lemo's & Lemo 2's out again Last Week. I filled 3 of My Lemo 2's with My Three All Day Vapes & My 4 Black Lemos with other Fav's Liquids. I wanted to compare the Lemo 2's to the New Tanks I acquired in the last 9 months or so & just enjoy the Great Vape from the Lemo's. Good to see a Thread like this to bring New Life with My Experience with My Lemo's and Lemo 2's!

    Thanks

    The two chimney pieces do have an ornoriness to them. If it is not one, then it is the other.
    Lubricating them helps, but not perfection.

    Here is my latest build and my first time twisted wire build. 4 strands of 28g Kanthal. 6 wraps, 3mm coil, 0.54ohms.

    I have a highly modified airflow Lemo Drop and modified juice channels, so do not try this on stock Lemo.

    Daily vape at 25W with rayon. I have gone as far as 50W but, the vape is very hot and wicking has to be perfect with Rayon to achieve 50w mark with no dry hits.
    The coil sits 4mm(rough estimate) above the air hole, its the highest position that it will give me maximum airflow without any air flow restrictions, at the same time i get very good(not awesome) juice flavor, yet IMHO enjoyable juice flavor with thick vapor and awesome direct lung hit.

    Chain vaping is not recommended as tank gets hot even at 25W.
    I used to use 24g Kanthal wire, but the 28g 4 strands its close to 20g or 18g gauge.

    If you chose to chain vape, keep it at 22w.

    Im vaping on Max VG Vape Caviar juice. Box mod: Sig100 Plus.

    Next time i rewick the coil, i will take pics of the current modded chimney that has larger juice flow opening , that i plan to mod further to increase for even more juice flow to the wick.

    I top fill the tank with zero juice leaks.
