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!
Definately works, mine 32g and about 1.5 to 1.7 ohms. Dont know how many wraps they are though, I don't count. Just taest ohms and vape.
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.
