Lately, all of the coils have spattered a bit into the glass drip tip, so working on a spatter-free "cold loader". Before. Out-of-focus, but you get the idea. The top loop of the third level is separated and wound free-hand into a little stove-top cap. A shard of shatter can be wedged in the space and melted in by gently pulsing on TC at lowest setting - suspending the blob above the hot inner core. After... a long, tasty hit. No spatter! Performing well beyond all expectations, but kind of an ugly coil, don't you think? How can we pretty it up? Tried just covering the top with straight wire - looked better, but still produced spatter. Gotta get more of this tri-core clapton wire. Nothing's easier to work with.
