    i've seen builds that use for example 28, 30, and 32g wire for a triple twisted coil but can i use only 28g?

    I triple twisted twisted 32k before.. that's 6 wire in 3 pairs. Each pair individually twisted into the bundle each pair twisted in opposition direction. Basically you can do as many wires as you want in whatever configuration as long as it can be coiled and fits. Beyond than you just have to make sure the ohm rate is within. Mod and battery safety and performance spec.

    I tried coiling up a 0.135" (9ga) Stainless steel B string from one of my 5 string basses and it wouldn't fit in any of my attys. :D

    Yeah would probably need one of the middle strings from a 6 sting.. too get coil size down to a reasonable size. I had considered coiling up some of the stainless strings I have when I first heard of SS being vaped. I bought vape wore instead.

    String gauges for guitar are sized opposite of Vape wire. The 1st string high E, the thinnest, is about the only one that is even remotely feasible in terms of coil material. Never met anyone foolish enough to try it tho.

    Oh Im sure some one has... Hell I saw a kid that used a paperclip to wrap a coil out of once. People can be stupid.

    Chain coil wire is made with 4 strands of 26g. Wrapping 3 strands of 28g is fine.
