I just finished winding my primary coil when a thought entered my head. I was
using metal screws to clamp the copper wire down into the wood base.
Obviously, I did not put the screw through the wire, just over it so the heads
of the screws are holding the wire down. Also, none of the screws are touching
each other or another piece of wire other than the piece it is holding down.
Is this method okay, or will the screws have some kind of adverse effect?
Should I use a material with very little conductance, like plastic clamps?
Again, your input is greatly appreciated. I am new to coiling and would hate
to see my first coil not even work.
