I know this isn't the microcoil thread but I'll ask for advice here anyway since you guys are familiar with my level (and lack of) skill:
I can make a tight wrap using a screwdriver, but even when I compress this and hit it with my el-cheapo torch from fasttech, it won't hold its form. So I wind up with like 8 very neat and uniform coils, which is nice, but the resistance is like 5 friggin' Ohm. Do I just need a better torch?
Also, are you annealing the wire before you wrap it or only after?
