    Stabs having a crack at a Hybrid Wick

    So I was thinking of Second Chances SS Wick in the Kayfun mini 2.1 and Soth runs a U wick, yet to see it. I had a crack at one and failed miserably but I didn't have a proper torch for oxidizing the SS. Anyway got home today, the Killer 705 is just the bomb.

    Started looking at my kayfun........Lets have another crack.......so I ended up at 1.4ohm 32awg on a SS mesh wrapped around some wick, sorry do not know the size Bugzme sent it with the Kayfun, he might chip in........

    Slow to wick at first, thought I had failed, I had about 4 wraps of 325 SS around it, I will tinker again with it, I just wanted to see if it worked. Then about 2 minutes later she fires up pretty darn well, as much vapour as just Silica alone.

    Tastes pretty darn good too, I am a happy chappy.......this was done to satisfy my curiosity in trying out different things, not because I am disatisified with the original performance. Couple of pics for ya's

    Stabs on getting some advice from Soth, sat down this afternoon to turn out a SS wick for the Kayfun mini, 325 mesh, wicks ok at the moment 1.6ohm coil 32awg kanthal. Took me awhile to work out. Then I sat down and got serious with the torch and shaping of the wick as I was having a hard time getting the coil to fire properly. So when I did pay more attention to the wicks shape trying not to kink it I had a working coil off the bat. Some pics for those interested, nothing new to any of the old hands but might be of use to the others having a crack at new things.
