WAT. Don't go that low. It's not needed and there are a laundry list of reasons not to including battery safety, acrolein production, etc.

I have been using a kayfun for the last month with 12 wraps of 28ga. on 5/64" bit and that seems to be working fine for now.
Just looking for some good direction to start dripping and a good coil to start with. BTW I'm using cotton as a wick material. Thanks
Sounds like you're off to a great start with rebuildables.

Here are some basic charts to help you:
Kanthal A-1 Wire Specs: (Ohms Per Inch)
28 AWG- 0.439 Ohms/in, 0.0508 Diameter (in.)
30 AWG- 0.696 Ohms/in, 0.0100 Diameter (in.)
32 AWG- 1.091 Ohms/in, 0.0080 Diameter (in.)
33 AWG- 1.383 Ohms/in, 0.0071 Diameter (in.)
34 AWG- 1.758 Ohms/in, 0.0063 Diameter (in.)
