    That is correct.

    FWIW, SlowHands has always been a big proponent of those ceramic cups.

    The diameter is way too big to work in most cases as is. Unbraiding is needed.

    I need to get some of that one of these days. I've been wanting to try it but I've been getting good results with regular wick and/or SS mesh.

    This, I have a bunch of. It wicks pretty damn good but it frays and rips apart pretty easy. At least for me it does. It's really good for making very small coils.
    Procrastinate. Now?

    Do you have the exact stuff, same supplier? That's Nicotime's pic.

    Certainly looks good in the pic.
