Re: Polypropylene coil form
This makes me chuckle a bit because I had a similar
problem with a coil which used a skeletal former with a 1/8"
thick wrap of polyethylene. In fact, a problem of sorts still
exists. The coil was closewound using 0.9mm wire and heavily
varnished to minimize the chances of its being damaged due to
its size and having to transport it in a smallish car. The
funny bit is that while sitting in a corner in the garage for
a while, the entire winding slipped in one solid piece to the
bottom of the former until it was sitting on the garage floor.
I could probably smash the former and remove it leaving a
truly skeletal coil behind.
You could use beads of hotmelt that were "welded" into the
former top and bottom if the windings were effectively one-
