Kayfun 3.1 ES - setup re-wick - re-coil
I've been experimenting with various methods for setting up this beast for a while now and I think i have one that should be fool proof almost every time - I've done it like this for about the last 5 re-coils and it's been spot-on every time... This is a variation on the figure of eight method but without the waste and the faff required for coiling.

First I start off with some 0.2mm Kanthal and two pieces of 1.5mm Eko wool that's been torched (torching the silica stiffens it a teeny bit as well as removing any 3rd party stuff)
İmage

Then I do a nice tight 4/5 wrap as shown, wrap the coil onto the silica so that the two pieces lay side by side
İmage

This is attached to the Kayfun then by pushing tight against the post block and screwing the coil tails in place
İmage

Then lift the coil up so that the wicks sit on top of the screws - ensure no coil touches the screws by adjusting with a pin screwdriver tweezers etc...
İmage

Ensure that the wicks are sitting side by side from the top as shown....
İmage

At this stage I prime the wick with some neat VG I keep in a small needle dispenser bottle - I have found that this greatly helps the wicks to start working with no fuss once everything is finally setup. I don't overload the wicks just load them a little bit to help with positioning and cutting a little later on....
İmage

Next I shove the wicks up into the barrel body and attach it leaving the wicks poking out of the top. I saturate them a little bit more with some neat VG
İmage

Then with some nail clippers I clip the wicks to about 5-8mm above the top of the barrel like so:
İmage

Then with a tweezers I manipulate the wicks down into the fluid wells like so - one tail either side and pulled against the central post so that the wick doesn't block the fluid entry channels. The prior wetting with VG greatly assists in doing this at this stage.

İmage

The coil works out at 2.0 - 2.1 ohms every time - higher ohms can be achieved with the use of 0.16 kanthal and lower ohms with 0.25 Kanthal...

Finally I get the juice I'm going to use and put approximately 3 drops in either fluid well until it begins to weep out of the bottom of the fluid channels - assemble - fill and vape


Hope this helps anyone having problems coming up with a reliable method for wicking this atty..

It must be a lot easier when the atty is fixed to something and you have both hands free.

you can always remove the 510 base connector off and then it will sit flat on a work surface as well on the kayfun.

You can get one of them here:

I got mine from the US at Madvapes but I recall seeing one in European shop the other day but can't for the life of me remember where it was! Smiling
