    10 wraps of .28 on a 1/8" bit should be pretty close.

    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.

    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.)

    Get a DMM & check the ohms yourself. Don't rely on 'he said, she said'..

    Wow, Great info guys! I'm new to this stuff. Been reading a lot of posts on this site. Thanks Vwls, that was perfect. Just what I as looking for. I'll get an Ohm meter here shortly, this stuff can add up quick if you don't know what is what. But that is part of the fun, learning as you go.

    While I agree Riptripper does do some fantastic builds. He never get into the safety portion on his videos. Just big clouds that impress everyone. I prefer 30 guage. Depending on how many wraps and the ID of the coil I can get just about anywhere from 0.5 - 2.0 ohms.
    I stopped trying to do sub ohms a while back for personal reasons.

    All those great big clouds people blow, while may be impressive to some. But it's a turn off to others.
    YMMV.



    And I don't ever remember seeing someone smoking a cigarette trying to make HUGE clouds.
