I made my cores stick out the back 1”. Then I took the screw on cap off a Gatorade bottle and drilled a 3/4” hole in it. I stuck it on the back of the coil and epoxied it to the core. I also coated the end of the core so it was water tight. Then filled up the bottle about 3/4 full of water and put it on the core. Each core has its own bottle. Between the water cooling the core and the air cooling the water, I haven’t melted anymore coils. Fingers crossed. At $50.00 a coil that gets expensive when you melt 10-12 at a time.
