Genesis Style Coil Rebuild by Vapelyfe

102 ratings | 20995 views
This is a video tutorial on wrapping a coil on an AGA T2 using a Provari. I am using 30 gauge A1 kanthal wire with an 400 mesh oxidized wick. I am using zig zag paper to create even spacing between coil and mesh resulting in an even glowing coil with no hot spots. Methods from the Peter K method regarding angle bends (Kinks) between negative screw to coil play and between positive post and coil. This method isolates the coil heat to just the coil. This method is much easier especially with the spring/washer mod on the center post. Yes, I understand the nuts don't match. Just used a bunch of other nuts and parts from different things lying around the house. Thanks for all the videos, forums and friends that gave me some pointers. This is one of many types of methods to come. At this point, this is the method I use and hope it helps others to get more familiarized with Genesis style rebuilding. I continue to learn each day which will in turn, improve my techniques. I will try my best to provide more video tutorials. Thanks for watching!

You could take out the positive post to wrap the coil it'll be easier and more precise. That's a suggestion.

Finally got my AGA T2 working! Thanks man!! It doesn't look as pretty as yours but it's close and it works! I went to a local hobby store and picked up a 3' piece of 047 music wire for $.67.

Where do you get the spring and washer? Do they need to be a certain kind of metal?

The rolling of the paper is to create an even spacing between the coil and the rolled mesh wick. Uneven glow on coils is due to uneven spacing. Too tight of a coil against the wick bottlenecks the wicking. Too loose won't evaporate the juice. The thickness of the zig zag paper is just right. I've reverted to peter k method on all of my current builds and currently experimenting with stainless steel cable.

What exactly is the purpose of the rolling paper?

The song in the end of the video is called "Capacity" by my band OFFVIBE. We are currently not an active band but just had the song and went with it at the end. Thanks!

The hole is about 2mm wide. I normally like a draw on 1.5mm holes. At the moment that was the only cap I had. But 2mm isn't that bad. I prefer a 2mm hole for more of a direct lung inhale than a normal cigarette inhale.

It looks like you drilled out the airhole. What size and how do you like it?

@twiztid83222 Yeah I have it set up dual coil dual wick in my Macaveli hybrid. It capes monstrous. Good luck. Pretty tough with a screw tight center post.

@gfred611 Most atomizers I own are designed having the screw directly to the body. I believe the raised negative post is for the use of silica. I figured is once it is lower to the body you have more room for more coils.

@Steffen Grunni I can't take the credit though. I know someone made it up. Been trying to find who so I can give the appropriate credit. Thanks!

@gfred611 Haha.. I know how that is. I'm spoiled having a bunch of RC hobbyists and what I do for work I got plenty of them lying around. Good luck man. I'm sure you'll find the right one.

looking everywhere around my house for a washer that will fit this!

Clever that rolling paper trick!
Gwen Frederick (6 years ago)
I noticed you swithced the negative screw around instead of using the post with the hole in it. Why is that? I'm gonna give it a try also!
