RE: Coil and Wick question
The coils are made from kanthal a1 wire, which Home Depot doesn't carry. You can get it from any vape shop or online, I know Amazon sells it really cheap. The cotton used is not normal cotton balls, you need organic cotton since normal cotton balls have all sorts of chemicals on them. Or you can use silica wick or rayon, but that's a matter of personal preference.

Unbleached cotton wool is what you are looking for. Most supermarkets stock this. Some people boil this and dry it before use, I've never bothered.

RE: Coil and Wick question
Any pure white cotton is a bad idea because it's usually chemically treated.  I prefer using Drago Egyptian cotton as it comes in a small bail and it's organic.  Any organic cotton will suffice, and it's available in just about any drugstore. 

As far as coils:  Coils are tank specific and are generally only available in vape shops and online.  If you are using a clearomizer or tank, the coils you need are available at your local vape shop or online.  Most tanks and clearomizers use modular coils that come in blister packs.
