I also got this to see the coils because the threads are tiny.

    That is $15 well spent and when you report back, others will learn from your experiments!
    Check this out. $4 for 100ft. of kanthal shipped. This is where i get mine. Lot cheaper and the exact same stuff that they sell you for $1.50 for 3 feet. They have all different sizes too.

    That is the same stuff I just ordered off eBay. Now the waiting begins for it to get here.

    Go to the hardware store and get a #6 machine screw. Then roll the 32 gauge between the threads. 4 coils will give you about 1.9ohms.
