I dunno. I think even if something was found to hold the windings in place
then the windings would be so tight (tension of one wrap multiplied by 1000
or more) that it would be impossible to slide it off even with paper.
However, if the coilform was built so it could collapse a bit without
sticking to the windings then there may be a chance.
