    Carto's are great. Apart from their reliability and sheer no-fuss (relatively) practicality there's ...

    A pin vise is about the most perfect device for winding coils. And it's been used by line engineers in the telecom industries for decades. Some inexpensive examples if you want to try one (available also on eBay and elsewhere)
