hi, congrats on the first wind. well all of our first coils came out less
than perfect. If you have a wire still overlapped it will cause problems but
a few kinks, spaces and etc generally dont bother too much if you give it a
number of coats. Once you graduate to higher power levels 5kw+ things get a
lot more fussy. I used a soft leather glove to gently work out a kink and
also to pull out spaces. cul brian
