Your plastic stretch wrap is a novel idea, but what about aesthetics?
Do you do presentations with the wrap on, or do you have a nice shiny
poly-coated secondary ready for those. Also, I noticed that you terminated
the upper winding of your secondary with a bolt and then a larger gauge
wire for attachment to the toroid. Does this arrangement promote corona,
or secondary breakout? I have had coils (probably badly tuned or
overpowered) where breakout has occurred just about where your bolt is.

I don't "paint" my coils anymore either ;-) I do wind them "tight" so
minor temp/humidity variations do not cause the windings to go loose and
fall. But for protection, I wrap them good with shipping stretch
wrap. All office supply stores have it. It is like Saran wrap but
heavier. It protect the coil from physical damage very well and if it
arcs up or gets damaged, you can easily pull it off and replace it!!
Here is my new little DRSSTC coil.
