Re: Perfect primary?

Try this: Lay the wire out in a straight line. Then attach one end to a
bench vice or such. Somehow, with a lever or come-along, pull the other end
to stretch the wire a bit. This will give you a perfectly straight,
unkinked wire. Then carefully wind it around a round form about the
diameter of the middle of your primary form. Finally, carefully insert the
wire into your primary supports. Hopefully, your supports are slotted so
you don't have to run the wire through a bunch of holes.
