    Well I set the ohms to .15 and watts to 30 and it literally doesn't do ANYTHING. Work my way up I guess?

    I got more cotton. I'm just gonna rewick it and take my time. No sense in rushing and not doing it properly.

    One note: You don't have to leave your cotton so long to the bottom of the tank. I usually cut it so it's just barely poking down into the glass part.

    Yup I did it. It seems to be working well now! So summary:
    Hot legs- trimmed cleaner solved problem
    Burning cotton- Rewick and take time. The cotton was just way too thick.
    Last problem, NOOB! Read up on what I'm using and what happens with coils. I had no idea that dual coils would lower resistance. And NEVER start with high wattage. I have to work my way up. Thanks so much guys! Cheers!

    Leith, glad you got things working for you. Sounds like you did a great job isolating all the variables :)
