Re: HAPTZ wire splicing question

Express wire service is a nice outfit to deal with. I bet if you call them
they would allow you to return your 10 one lb spools for a larger spool.
It's worth a try and will save you all the soldering and insulating, plus
your finished coil will look very nice.
For the final finish use 4 coats of Dolph's AC-43 (see their website). It
is especially formulated for excellent HV protection (around 3.4 kV/mil if I
remember correctly) and produces a very hard finish. Allow 24 hrs for
complete drying between each coating.
