Diamond Coil
« on: December 13, 2013, 02:16:12 AM »

hearing great things regarding the evolution of coiling, and in particular the Diamond coil technique from Rocc, i thought i'd give it a go:

here's a few pictures documenting the experiment:

0.35 Kanthal, wrapped microcoil syle but in four equal increments:




next up, the equal continual microcoils are positioned at 45 degree angle to each other to form something of a square.




next task was to fit the coil into the device:




then test and tweak until glowing as evenly as was possible:




next was to thread one single continuous run of cotton wool through the coils at all four sides:




leaving the lower most two ends cut shear and  rested just comfortably at the deck of the atty, is enough to feed juice up the wick.




the top most section of cotton wool soaks up liquid as dripped via the drip tip and dispenses directly down into the four sides of, the Diamond Coil.

Quite the impressive build there, what oHms does it run at ?

cheers Capt - i haven't yet tested the resistance as its built directly into the dripper/hybrid, but at a very rough guess i'd suspect it to be at least a bare minimum, 2.0 ohm.

i'll query it with my meter shortly and get a more solid measure.

according to the multimeter, it comes in at 1.7ohm - it doesn't react like might normally be expected from a coil of that resistance though.

Wow, I would have expected higher. I still need to master the micro before attempting a masterpiece such as your diamond coil 8)

that's a Versa dripper which Scott gave to me following his reviewing it - it replaces the genesis section of the Versa Hybrid and so transforms the Versa into a dripper hybrid.

Great looking coil. It certainly is fun trying different layouts. I'm having a mini coiling party later tonight.  ;)

What did you wrap around? Trying to get a sense of inner diameter.

i wrapped that particular one around what i think is an 18 gauge blunt needle - so the innermost part of the coils are approximately 1mm

Cool. I'm experimenting with larger bore micro's. Currently around I think a 2mm drill, 5-6 wraps of .30 is a nice .8-.9ohm.

I might try one of these one day. Will report back when I do.  ;)
