That would make it very difficult! On my early coils I would wind a 
thread the same thickness as the wire the whole length and just leave
it on when done, but the loop with a weight is much easier than 
playing with a wire and a thread! Of course the best way is to use a
lathe (expensive)or make a winding machine.
