    Make your coil wraps/turns neatly spaced when recoiling

    Try this if your coils are uneven...it works for me.

    Say you're trying to achieve 5 coils but the first one is unevenly spaced...wrap six coils instead (the last five of which will be even) then unwrap the first one.

    That's exactly what I do. Since I'm holding the wick, pin and wire I make the first one wonky then wrap the next 5 as neatly as I can and unwrap the first one. Works every time

    I worked this out last week after struggling to get the first one tight, really good tip.

    Simple yet effective! I'll be sure to try that myself when I wire up some coils next time

    For extra neatness i find if i follow the above tip but, do it whilst wearing the wives knickers it helps. Not sure why tbh, maybe just a comfort thing

    I'm a clever git,I wrap my coils onto the former & then grab both ends with the pliers & simply pull hard.The result is the coils bunch closer together & then once mounted in the posts,fire up the battery & soon as I release the firing button,tweak the coils together with tweezers.

    I'll try this though with my next coiling session,hopefully reduce the number of "coiling weapons" I need carry with me if out & about.


    The banner is there to remind me

    Thanks for the tip! I'm (currently) only rebuilding protank coils, I just place a pin under the wick and wrap around it

    Bloody obvious when you think of it (which I didn't) so thanks for the tip
