    What about the ones that stay closed and you squeeze to open them? They are just a little bigger than normal tweezers and about twice as long. Surgical stainless. Those are the best ones but I don't know what they are called. I believe they are a medical tool.

    Hemostats. Good for computer techs too back in the day I think they would crush the coil, but kanthal is cheap so might be worth a try.

    One more thought...

    You could pinch the coil in a bench vice, although the heat sink effect may add a significant amount of time to the process.

    I just put my coil in the middle of a dictionary and sit on it for an hour or so.

    I've actually seen like a big version of tweezers, specifically more tool-like, but still have the precision of tweezers as opposed to something more like a needle-nose, something you can pinch with your fingers as opposed to gripping. That's what I'm after. I have a feeling that regular old tweezers don't have a wide enough pinch for higher-ohm coil.
