Only thing I can think of is are your connections secure?
Bump for more to look at for you.
Pictures would be very helpful in ironing this out, from the sounds of it the build is a bit of a mess.
I'm a little confused about what resistance reading you actually got. You say 1 ohm reading on the resistance checker, then you put another atty on there and it read .4? Do you mean you checked the resistance on a different resistance checker, and the reading was different? The way it reads it sounds like you are checking the resistance of two different attys which is why I'm confused.
Wandering resistance is either a sign of a loose connection (resistance will go up) or a short somewhere (resistance will go down) The IgoW posts are jerks compared to most other RBAs I've build, not sure why, but it seems like it's more difficult to get the wires clamped down securely without breaking them compared to other rebuildables.
Wiggle your coils around a bit, do they stay in place or can you see the wire moving around inside the post? If it's not screwed down securely you won't get a good connection and your resistance will wander.
Make sure the coils aren't touching the deck, or touching the posts, or anything like that, which would cause a short.
Pictures would be very helpful though if possible!
sounds like one of the coils is totally shorted. I started building the w with a single coil then worked up to a dual. I'd try that and learn to work the kinks out of one first. Good luck
Hi and welcome,
What wire are you using?
What length of wire are you using?
What wick are you using?
Do you have a multi-meter?
What device are you using?
Do you have any other size or type of wire?
