    What is the smallest /thinnest Guage flat wire? Thinnest i have seen is 26g? Is there maybe a 27 or 28 Guage for MTL vaping as i would really like to try it?

    haven't seen either best to make your own but it's a catch 22 as flattening the wire means less wraps means lower ohms.... and you won't really see the benefit tbh....

    Try an electronics wholesaler or check bid or buy. It's definately not available at a vape store as it's not popular.
    I have taken wire out of a broken toaster before and it works.

    After seeing the mesh build in the Zeus and now using toaster wire i'm getting visions of you having a secret laboratory and turning into a mad scientist when the sun goes down!

    Nothing happened to me...yet.
    It's made of the same wires we use for vaping bro. everybody just has his or her preferred choice of wire.eg. NI80/90,SS,kanthal etc.

    They used to use the same flat wire in hairdryers but I have seen round wire coils in recent hairdryers

    For MTL I used a 1.5 drill bit to wrap. The cotton could be a bit tricky but I know you'll get it wicked.

    I'd also space it very slightly.the wire holds heat for longer due to surface and could burn through cotton. That way it'll cool quicker and you can check the wick through spacings.

    The mere fact that you tried makes it worth it.next time you flatten a wire with a hammer heat it up and cool it off before you bend it.
