Making the tie points for the coil

As you can see the loops are on the fiber glass rod. You could simply solder the lead wires to the wires and leave the rod but the single turn loops would be hard to keep from shorting out.
I simple took my needle nose pliers and put a little twist in each loop. I staggered the single turn taps to make it easier to connect to them without shorting them out.
If you want to avoid the soldering you can make the loops about 5 or 6 inches long and twist them at each point as you wind the coil. This will work but you will have a lot of tags to keep up with while winding the coil.
