28-gauge (can't tell which of the pond you're on, so whatever that is in mm), and organic cotton if you can get it; if not, plain old 100% cotton balls are fine.  A butane torch and a set of cheapo jeweler's screwdrivers.  That'll do 'er.
Hey Todd, how's it goin'?

Just to add that 28 gauge might be listed as 0.32mm - Some places go by diameter rather than gauge as it's a bit more intuitive.

You can go down to 0.30mm if you like, but any thinner gets a bit trickier to build a microcoil. 0.30-0.32 is easy to work with and reasonable resistance. Much bigger is still usable, but even 0.40mm is quite stiff to work with.

Good luck  :)+1

Check out Vape Mesh Co. for supplies -- they usually throw in a little extra something with an order.  I'd ordered some silica, Ekowool, and mesh; got an extra sheet or two of mesh.

Good pricing, as I recall.
