Welcome mwdenko I find leaving the rba right on the mod works best .You can test the ohms with a voltage meter and its easier to recoil with it on the mod .
That's what I use all the time - 32 gauge, and I wrap on the end of a little bitty screwdriver. I always use about 5-6 wraps and get a coil that's around 1.2 - 1.5 ohms. Then I slide my cotton embroidery thread (usually) or my organic cotton ball "string" through the coil, saturate it, and voila!! vaping nirvana!
I used 28 gauge and with 4 wraps got a 1.2Ω coil. Works great but I only have mesh right now to work with. My silica hasn't come in yet. Trying to work up the courage to order the Reomizer (and a mini 2.1). I know I need it.
