RE: Multi meter
The formula is 1/R = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + ...

So for two 1.8 ohm coils you get 1/1.8 + 1/1.8 = 2/1.8 = 0.9

Or for 4 1.2 ohm coils 1/1.2+1/1.2+1/1.2+1/1.2 = 4/1.2 = 1/R so R=1.2/4 or 0.3 ohms

Basically identical dual coils halve the resistance, quad coils quarter it.

Going below about 0.25 ohms is only for those with the means to measure low resistances and high currents accurately - and high current cells of good quality. And very long drip tips - one of your pipe stems would be ideal for silly low resistances.

RE: Multi meter
You can also check your atties by simply putting one lead on the positive post and one on the negative threads. If your meter doesn't zero say it's .1 or .2 or whatever you need to subtract that.  

If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?
