i think you're doing it right......but use stickstack tubing for the wig wag not vac stack, you don't want clear on the outside for WW millies.

I have done these with some success you have the basic idea. Some things to keep in mind.

1 Use solid lined color tubing or clear on outside only. Clear on the inside of your tube will end up with a clear void in the middle of your reversal.
2 wig wag your tube and blow bubble and yes now blow hole 90 degrees off original hole placement effects the final look of milli. attach a new tube to hole. Now the tricky part this tube needs to be big enough to blow out and shrink your reversal into it just like doing a tube implosion.
3 Shrink this down marver condense attach a handle to the bottom of your implosion using clear. Tear off the extra bubble, now cover outside with color or clear and attach handle to the top of your implosion. Build up a good heat base shrink down marver condense some more the more you can shrink down the better.
4 last step build up a good heat base and pull to desired diameter.
This tech is difficult to master but well worth the effort to learn. It is not limited to wig wags or reversals checkout this link.

Is it possible for anyone to post pictures of the step by steps. I've discovered (as I get older!!!) that I'm more of a visual learner. I got lost in the instructions... it's sad to get old!

Nice video pictures are worth a thousand words. The vid stops just short of attaching second handle and pulling to desired diameter.

1) Make a wigwag reverse the axis.
2)have a 50mm to 19mm handle ready
3)attach the wag and disc it into the top of the 50
4)condense like you know what
5)have a punty with the size of the wigwag disc ready.
6)focus the heat onto the 50mm with the condensed disc
7)once theres a nice heatbase. attach punty cold and give it a gentle pull into a cane
