RE: How to oxidate mesh
I torch before rolling which enables me to roll the mesh tighter and I do not quench so not to temper the mesh (makes it stiffer). I found wicking was better without a center hole.
I torch it again after rolling and quench between torching.

RE: How to oxidate mesh
Sorry probably being very dumb, but is the aim of heating the mesh to oxidise or to add a layer of carbon?

Oxidise.

Although, depending on how 'yellow' your flame is, you will also be adding a layer of carbon. Use a blue flame, stick with the oxidation. Small carbon particles are not great for the lungs.

RE: How to oxidate mesh
Mine seem to draw up more liquid quicker and better if you make the mesh a spiral inside and not a hollow tube.
Just make a real small fold at the start or do a roll as per the OPs video unwind it and add the fold and re-roll by hand.

The spiral seems to give more contact/surface area to hold more liquid. IMHO.

Regarding hotspots, took me a while to get my head around it. I was winding the coils too tight. Also the branching wire
to the connectors from the wick needs to be as short a distance as possible. This way it appears the heat is dispersed/transferred
more efficiently and not held in the naked wire. That's my very basic view of it, I know very little but this is what I have noticed.

Just my 50p's worth... IMHO

Thanks for the vid.
