primary tap construction

Original poster: "Bill Vanyo by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-uswest-dot-net>" <vanyo-at-echoes-dot-net>

I can't seem to figure out a way to build a good solid primary tap
connection that isn't so bulky as to nearly short the 1/4" gap between
turns.  How heavy does the tap need to be?  It seems silly (to my
limited intuition - this is my first coil) to have some skimpy clip
device on such a heavy coil (1/4" tubing).  Also, how heavy should the
wire that leads to the tap be?  If possible, would it be OK to just use
1/4" copper tubing for the whole circuit, i.e. primary to cap, cap to
spark gap, and spark gap to primary tap, all the same 1/4" tubing?
