Bulli Mesh Wick
« on: June 26, 2012, 11:01:04 PM »

I made my first mesh wick a few days ago for it and it worked great, however it was prone to moving out of position if knocked or in my pocket while out, I realised straight away what was the cause it and it was due to having to leave the wires going to the terminals quite long to be able to tighten the screws up before moving the wick on to the top of the screws.

Been racking my brain today to try and find a better way to do it keeping the wire length as short as possible from the coil, while still able to tighten the screws and move the wick into the final position on top after, but whatever way I tried I always felt I had to much play in the wire or not enough.

I came up with a solution this afternoon and that was to use a bit of flattened oxidised wick as spacers on top of the screws to keep the wires taut:




It seems to work quite well I have waved it about and generally abused it and neither the wick nor the spacers have moved and no dry hits! However I do get the feeling I’m missing something obvious in the way I’m trying to set it up... any ideas?

Yes it is quite a improvement over the recommend setup noticed straight away there was a improvement in flavor and throat hit, also fixed the slight wicking problems I had if I took a couple of quick drags, not really noticed a difference in vapor production but that was always ok.

I do it so the screws are slightly loose then turn it up and tighten them up good and tight. Plus i put the wires on the inside of the screws and use 4 turns so the down wick sits right on to it and still heats up nice. It out lasts the glass wick by days even weeks. Try  menthol face punch or what  ^^

Its fine to use in dripping mode like this. You need to have a constant hit of liquid on the mesh as the mesh will dry out very quickly. The alternative is to roll one strand of fiberglass wick
inside the mesh.......

Heres one I made a while back...

I need to give this a try. I'll do it the next time I'm coiling. Looks great.

Cheers guys will have a play when my coil needs changing, its working quite well at the mo but I would rather not need to  have the spacers in there as they are quite fiddly to get in place :)

this looks very interesting, I like the idea of a strand of wick inside the mesh Fiona, as I am not direct dripping with mine, will give it a go.  What wire are you using Fiona?  :)

Had another go at it tonight now have a wick with fiberglass in the middle, the tip of doing the coil quite loose did the trick in sorting my wire length out.



Cheers all :)
