I've never used a Gennie before, but due to the reviews, I got hold of the FT clone, which has some great feedback. I just cannot get this to work, I oxidize the mesh thoroughly, put it in properly, insert the coil through the nut, tighten it down and wrap the 0.32 Kanthal four times, then attach it to the negative screw. I then get a reading from 0.05 to 0.4 with various attempts, which can't be right and when I pulse it up, I get a small flicker of light from the underside of the screw/top of the mesh and a little burning, then nothing. The peek insulator around the 510 is only press fitted, so the post comes out very easily and spins when I wrap the wire, it's rather difficult as the post spins. I presume this is the reason for my troubles, but wondered if any of you experts have a solution?
