I have 16 inch diameter pvc coil form that I have wound with teflon wire.  I 
have wound it THREE times!  I was finally able to get the wire to stay in 
place, but temperature changes sure cause problems.  I do NOT recommend that 
any one use teflon insulated wire or teflon forms for coils - it is just not 
worth the heart-ache.
