	But, as I stated, the reason I had chosen the bondo resin is
because of the relative flaccidity of the Sonotube.  I wanted to
improve the rigidity.  Glyptal won't do that, right?  And a few thousand 
feet of magnet wire is going to be lots of weight on this little cardboard
tube with no resin.....

	Well, still working on a 'real' coilform....
