    Genesis tank adjustable breather hole solved

    Adjustable tank vent solved.







    Thoughts: Needed to grind screw head down a little to fit inside top cap.
    Spring from Pen would have been a little better if it was a slightly smaller gauge to ensure less "slop"
    Would be good to have some sort of visible scale on the screw to get consistent adjustment
    each time it has to be removed

    Other than that is works great.
    I turn it parallel to the ground and adjust screw until no leaking occurs, but fire it to make sure it is wicking well.

    Sometime True Genius is just misunderstood by those who love us regardless

    Realized we don't need a visible scale on the screw for consistent or repeatable breather valve setting. The solution is simple. When you find the right balance between not leaking and good wicking, turn the screw in until it fully compresses the spring counting the turns as you go. My DID is perfect at one full turn out from fully compressed, thats far less airflow needed than I was expecting.*
    So when I remove the screw to refill I screw it in until it stops then one full turn anti clockwise and I'm set

    My new coil for my DID on around 180mm of #500 mesh, 6wrap 28Awg nichrome coil, with adjustable tank breather screw really shining with a wick that is a really snug fit in the wickhole, Grrrreat flavor, and vapor, runs great on my mechanical Paps from 4.2v right down to 2.9v, just take longer hits as the voltage drops, truly sweet.
    I keep trying the 30awg Kanthal, but keep coming back to this 28awg nichrome for great stability and awesome flavor from multiple coils at low ohms on my mechanical mods. I have 28awg Kanthal on the way (higher Ohms/meter than the nichrome), but i can't see how it can get much better than this. :headbang:

    That looks excellent IMO, nichrome tastes better than kanthral, but everyone is different.

    I'm giving this a bump because: I want new users to get to see the adjustable tank breather screw that is still the mainstay of all my genesis setups.
    Hands up all of you who don't put the fill screw in because it slows your wicking?
    This little gem stops flooding you can get with too much airflow to your tank.
    It takes minutes to make and cost a few cents.
    Give it a try and let me know what you think.
