    Orion help needed

    Hey peeps im having abit of trouble with setting up my orion v1 which i purchased off the classifieds. Ive got all my coils glowing evenly. Got the airhole in line with the wick. Basically everythin is setup right but getting real strong throat hit and very little vapor. Is this due to the small airhole in the driptip on the topcap??? Also im using 400mesh and only 3wraps of 32gauge kanthal
    Cheers

    add a bit

    yatsey those shorts are sneaky bastards,can look bloody great but if your getting kth its prolly a short.i would/did wrap it at 4/5 with my roll of 33 awg.cant really offer much more insight,but to keep fiddling.the air hole could be bigger but was never keen to mod it.

    I mite recoil it then and do a 4/5 wrap and see how i go. Do you use any wick hole in particular or it doesnt matter. Cause i noticed the posts bend towards one of the wick holes if you know what i mean. I already opened up the airhole to 1.3mm i didnt want to but it was not airy enough for my liking lol, the driptip is still the same dimension though

    Review and Set Up of the Orion v2 - YouTube this may help

    use the wick hole that lines up with air hole on the cap

    I had a nightmare time when I first got mine.
    Turned out to be bad wire that was expanding after use.
    Fixed it eventually with heavy flaming.
    After that it was perfect and easy to setup with the right wire.

    But I caught a look with the light of the computer monitor behind it and....... my coils are expanding!
    I'm 98% sure most of my problem is the coils expanding and moving away from the wick.



    I use the PetarK method to wrap, then it is a tight fit to slid my wick in, but after a few vapes they blow out like this.
    I also pulse them before I put the wick in.

    Any ideas? Almost there


    PS Hope I didn't do the same thing to the one I setup in yours ROS!

    I wanted to at first but not sure if I got used to it in the end or it was just better when I was building it properly.
