I know. I'll try.
Yes I did coat it...
with nail polish.

I don't think my inner layer is very tight. but i'll see.
I've got probably near 800' of wire to remove.

Hi Steven,

You haven't lost anything but the time to put those extra layers on. Just unwind the outer layers and keep the inner most layer. Hope you haven't coated the coil yet. Even if so, you still need to remove the outer layers or wind another secondary.

Actually no, wire isn't cheap. at least not for me. Time isn't cheap either. I'm getting a grade on this Tesla coil. If i finish, it's an A. If I don't, it's a 0. I've o nly got till the end of the semester. 8^0

Tesla secondary windings are always (with a very few exeptions) a SINGLE layer of coil over a form. Your winding starts at one end, and ends once it reaches the other end. You dont go back and wind back over the first layer of wire.

If you did wind your coil in several layers, you will simply have to
unwind these and make a single neat layer.

Dont get too bummed out, wire is pretty cheap ;-).
