Go for it Sandra - but make sure you take photos
Also, you might be able to get a finer tip for your soldering iron. Look at the model number - I found Maplins had replacement ones for mine even though it is around 15 years old. Not cheap but worth it as soldering those tiny wires needs a fine tip.

I have yet to rebuild a coil, but I do know that the resistance is only determined by the total length of current carrying wire i.e from where it leaves the +ve terminal of the carto to where it contacts the -ve terminal. The effect of the diameter of coil, pitch of the spiral and the thickness of the wick would be useful to know as I'm sure the same applies to all rebuildables.
