RE: newbie question and need help and new into vaping
"Ohm" is an electrical measurement. It's just a way of measuring how much resistance your coils have. Lower resistance means more power, which makes the juice vaporize more quickly for a stronger vape. Don't use wool for wick. Most people use organic cotton or rayon wicking, though some prefer silicon wick. It's a matter of preference, I personally prefer rayon. You build the coils yourself in a rebuildable atomizer by wrapping the wire into little spring things, and more wraps means more resistance. Then you stuff the wick into the coil (or around the coil in some cases) and the juice goes up the wick to get vaporized. 

Honestly, I'd suggest doing a lot of research before committing to making your own mod. Mechanical mods can be very dangerous if you don't understand how they work and how to properly use them. And by dangerous I mean they can literally explode and send shrapnel flying everywhere like a grenade in your face. That probably won't happen, but it's a risk I wouldn't take without knowing exactly how to prevent it. So read up and watch videos on YouTube to make sure it's right for you. Other people on the forum here can go way more in depth than I have here. 

What kind of mod were you planning on making and how? Just curious.

RE: newbie question and need help and new into vaping
Do you mean you want to build your own mod, or get a mechanical mod and use a rebuildable atty? There's a big difference. When you said "make a mod" it sounds like you want to chop the tubing and wire things together and stuff. I'd suggest just buying a mod like the Stingray and using it as-is with a rebuildable atomizer. Maybe I'm nit-picking over semantics, if so I'm sorry.

RE: newbie question and need help and new into vaping
Probably your best bet would be to go to a vape shop and ask them about it. I don't have any video links at the moment but I could find some, but it's better to talk to a knowledgeable person who can answer any questions a video might not address.
