I have come up with a tool to make building Clapton Coils a lot easier. When making Claptons I notice the hardest part of the build was guiding the wire and applying pressure as it was wound. I came up with a simple device to do that for you. I will supply pictures and a brief description. Here you go.
All you need is to cut 2 pipettes so one can fit inside the other.
Once they are cut, feed your wrapping wire through the shorter of the two and insert the other part of the pipette pinning your wire between the two, The tighter the fit the better, this will give you the tension you need for wrapping. I’m using a larger gauge wire just as an example.
Attach the wire to be wrapped and the wrapping wire into the drill and start slow. Make sure there is plenty of tension on wrapping wire and at an angle of a T and right against the wire to be wrapped.
I think this method will work with a large gauge syringe also. With a little practice you will see this method is much easier than trying to guide the wire by hand. I made two of these tonight and by second wire I had perfected this technique, with the drill running at full speed.
I started to post this on Reddit first but you guys deserve this. Maybe somebody will link it for me because I’m not going to.
