    Muji Cotton Wick

    Making the coil:

    Cut off approximately 4" of 0.4mm Kanthal and wrap around the shaft of the small blue screwdriver, keep the wire taught to the shaft as you wrap and you need 5 wraps spacing each wrap an mm or 2 apart, try and keep the wraps spacing relatively even. Each end of the wire should point in opposite directions.
    It should now look something like this :

    Next up with the coil still on the driver compress the coil against the shoulder of the screwdriver so all the wraps are touching then release, you do this easily with your fingers and may have to repeat once or twice. On release, your looking for all the coils to equally spaced and not touching.

    Here's the coil compressed, I'm only using pliers as it's easier to get a clear pic.

    The RBA breaks down into 3 parts, the base, chimney and top cap. The base can be difficult to separate from the chimney, if you find this use the points of the scissors to locate in the juice channels from below and then twist off the chimney, remove the top cap from the chimney.

    And then screw the atty base into an ohmmeter for stability.

    Position the coil over the air hole whilst still on the blue screwdriver & ensuring the legs of the coil are at the bottom.
    With the screws loose position the first leg down the side of the first screw and tighten the screw down then secure the other leg. Once secure you can make minor adjustments to the coil position to ensure it's central and directly over the air hole by moving the screwdriver.

    Wiggle the spare Kanthal legs to ensure a neat break, remove the screwdriver and then check the resistance of your coil, you should get 0.5 ohms. You may wish to fire the coil on a mod at this point to check for hot spots and even heating of the coil

    Using the jeweller's screwdriver curve the end of each wick down against the inside wall of the chimney until the end of each wick is down on the RBA deck. Try and keep the wick fluffy and spread it out across the whole width of the deck.

    Now juice up the wick ensuring you soak the whole of the wick including and especially under the coil.
    using the end of a straightened paperclip ease the wick on the deck on either side away from the juice channels so you can see the juice channels clearly. This is important.

    Full tank, leave it to stand upright for 5 minutes, set the airflow to your preferred position, single hole, dual hole or full bore open and you're ready to go.

    Here's a Riptrippers video of the above method.



    Don't really see the point in rebuilding the OCC heads given the RBA deck gives a better vape and is less fiddly to coil but for those who wish to here's another video on the OCC head rebuild.
