    Isn't "clockwise" what is being referred to in the last few posts? If not, then yes, that's how I do it too. :D

    I wrap my wire so it is counterclockwise so it "pushes" the wire toward the coil. This is how many seasoned coilers do it and with good reason. To wrap the wire clockwise will tend to pull your coil apart. That said, there are worse things in life. :)

    Maybe it's the size of my coils or the way I have it running across the deck, but I haven't seen any problems with the clockwise wrap. The ends line up almost perfectly to where they need to go under the screw.

    You can have them run counterclockwise just as easily. All depends how you shape your tails. It helps to keep your coil on the shaft you used to wrap it with while you tighten the tails. Helps to keep its shape. But like I say, there are worse things in life so go with what works for you. As far as life-importance goes, I would place tail direction pretty low on my list.

    That looks like about 14 wraps.

    I do clockwise as well, if the coil separates a little bit I just fire and squeeze .

    I usually put the wire on the underside of the screwhead, seems to hold the wire better ;)
    Pre-position the wire a bit less of the rotation of the screw, as you tighten it will follow the screwhead and fall into the correct orientation when tight.
