    Question Avidartisan Daedalus Coil DIY Tool ?

    hi all i've been enjoying staple coils lately (8x 0.1x0.5 + 36) but they're a pain in the hand to clapton even with my home made clapton jig as i have to go slow or the 36awg doubles back on itself so i was thinking of getting one of these
    as i like the idea of speed control and a switch rather than a trigger on the drill. Does anyone own one or have any experience using one ? are they worth the $55 ? is there a better option ?

    Somebody was going to get one to try it out. I'm not sure they reported back.

    A lot of faffing about is why i would never even bother with that kinda gear, for the price of them id want it to convert into a umm personal enjoyment tool after dark

    Get a $6 kuro style coil winder jobbie and just knock your coils out, you can get clapton wire premade in this day and age, and thats the only reason the above might have been useful...i doubt it though...i think a kuro style winder and premade clapton wire, which would be way more consistent than anything that would come off that malarkey, would come out about 100 times better

    For the longest time i just used the tried and tested jewellers 3mm screwdriver...i never did claptons though..

    i agree to a point i have a kuro winder and all my normal clapton wire comes off a spool never seen the point in making it myself when its probably cheaper to buy pre made but after coming across a $30 pair of framed staple claptons on the V.E. site i thought i have to give them a go (without paying $30) to see why anyone would pay that much for coils so i dropped the frame part and made some up and the flavour is amazing. tried to find pre built coils (at a good price) or wire on places like F.T. but they all seem to have a solid core and i think its the 8 layers of ribbon kanthal that make the difference between them and things like claptons and fused claptons. so now i want to make myself some more and a few sets for friends with minimal fuss and effort

    Well if youre a coil pornist then yes, it might make sense, and the options are limited

    make sure your ribbon wire will fit

    there are limited holes, each for a specific gauge

    also try crazy wire co UK

    i thought about buying one, since nichrome options are limited, but have since decided i prefer straight wire, or occasional simple claptons which i can get prewound spools of

    I don't make my coils from scratch (no gear / no space) but I appreciate the effort and
    having control on quality. For now i make do with pre-made hybrid wires from China with some doubts
    about the quality on SS wires.

    First attempt.

    Fused 2*26/40

    Wasted lots. And I should have bought the full kit with drill.

    I don't think my work surface was slippery enough

    Mate good on ya for having a go. Ive looked at winding my own coils and thought i just cant be fkd.
    What u have coiled up is exactly what i use for my flavor chasing set up. But i presume that 40g is a pita to work with. Mate thinner than my pubic hair.

    Practice makes perfect mate im sure next tine will be easier.

    Prep work is the key to staple coils. You need to have it set up very well. What swivels are you using for them?
