David, your not crazy, your doing what most of us do, find what
resources are at hand, adapt as needed, whatever it takes to make
coils !!  ;-)    Can understand you wanting to run then dry, but this
could cause the units to overheat, you may be able to compensate for
this by having 3 layers of poly between each plate (of course you'll
have to add a few more plates, other than that, good luck and let us
know how it turns out.
