I have went ahead and wound a new 6" using a quad build Imideze.  When completed
I am going to compare it against my other 6" which is using Belden Heavy-Armored
Poly-Thermaleze.  Should make for an interesting experiment.  Will keep posted..

As for the premier coating, I am going to be using an insulating varnish
from EIS, it's specs are as follows:

601 Red Insulating Varnish

(a) dries in 60 min.
(b) abrasion and wear resistant
(c) high-arc resistance
(d) non-tracking properties
(e) dielectric strength up to 2100 V/mil
(f) used for motor windings and transformers

I have used this stuff before and have no complaints with it.  It is easy to
apply (comes in a spray can) and dries fast.  It is extremly durable and gives
the coil a smart appearence after it is finished.  The dielectric srength of
this stuff is exceptional, never had any breakdowns with stuff.

I order directly from EIS but I am sure it can be found else where.  I usually
by 1 case (12 cans) at about $2.50(usd) per can.
