    I'm glad you can see where I'm coming from, I was starting to think I was going mad. @todd - can you see the confusion between 2 x 2.5mm and 1 x 5mm not being double ??

    Bearing in mind that if 2 wicks were placed together then technically the Kanthal wouldn't be going 'all' the way around both wicks.

    To compound matters...

    If you get a set of callipers on wick, especially for 3mm upwards the diameter isn't accurate

    For example, the 5mm wick measures up at 3.75mm

    ffs

    The measurement must be it's wet diameter.

    So the coil that I've just made round the 5mm wick, the winds are approx 3.75mm in diameter

    Right that's it - after the 'can of worms comment' I actually starting day dreaming and thinking of the circumference of a worm and would I chop it in half to double wick it or simply fold it over. I then started thinking of ekowool and whether I should peel the worm and remove it's guts to replicate the ekowool..........this tells me that I'm giving all this waaaaaaaay too much thought and as I have my Kayfuns running perfectly I don't know why exactly I'm sitting here with my scientific calculator so bollocks to it. Back to a double wick of 3mm and .20 Kanthal. :grin2::grin2::grin2:

    If peter uses 3 mm silica and Judy adds 1.5mm, then john ads a single strand from a 2.5mm and dose 4 wraps of 20 gauge niobium wire, how many ohms do you get ?

    Explain your answer in the vast space provided




















    :D
