    I've got a nextiny clone that I've put a mesh wick in. No coil yet, just the wick. It's well oxidised, juice torched with no hanging bits etc.

    When I put it on my resistance checker it's reading about 5.5 ohms. Is this normal?

    What does it say without the mesh?

    That's a good shout. It gives me the correct reading, the dashes that indicate an open circuit so I'm pretty sure the atty itself isn't shorting.

    Coil it, raise the mesh slightly when you do. The mesh might be shorting on the base.

    Sorry for highjacking your thread eightbyte but could you recommend some good you tube tutorials for genny builds? Or would you have time to put up a few pictures of your build as you go eightbyte? :) I'm seriously considering one and im trying to get as much info as possible

    I learnt to wick a sat22 from this video
    The principles are the same for everything I use. @decson has put together a nice nextiny build thread with pics and hints here https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?ur...share_tid=105545&share_fid=49796&share_type=t
    NextTiny tutorial (any central pole Genny really just change mesh dimensions)

    This must have been exactly what was happening. I unwrapped the mesh and rewrapped it, being careful to keep it high on the post and it's now showing a open circuit without a coil.

    Have to nip out to IKEA now () but I'll coil it and post pics later. Thanks for the help!

    I had seen decson's step by step, it's pretty good. That lad in that video must have asbestos fingers with that mesh!
