It doesn't effect the insulation at all. I've had no insulation problems.

The clamp is clamping the winding wire and therefore tension can maintained while winding resulting in a nice tight coil. This can be a simple peg arrangement with a couple of pieces of felt or it can be made adjustable so that tension can be adjusted to suit the gauge of wire. It is mounted on an arm which is in turn mounted on a lead screw which guides the wire along the length of the coil.
Another thing I have noticed is that a lot of coilers who wind their coils place the spool with the winding wire horizontal to the secondary they are winding supported with some sort of bar. This is not necessary. The spool can be sat upright and the wire will just unwind beautifully. No problems with an overunning spool.


But each unwound turn from the spool will add a 360 degr. twist to the wire, which is not good for the isolation.
