Thursday Tip

I have stumbled upon a great (I mean G R E A T) blog article on coiled wire - it tells you how much wire of a specific gauge you need to wire a specific length on another specific gauge.

That's a totally life saver if you like coils as much as I do - when I experiment I used copper directly from the coil. At the end of the experiment I usually scratch my head wondering how much wire was it really in there?! 'Cause if you don't know how much wire you used you cannot do one of 2 things (equally important):

  • You cannot properly price a piece - you don't know what went it, how can you decide how much is worth it?!
  • You cannot write a tutorial for that piece
But now I can (without unwrapping the experiment and measuring the wire, that's it) and you can too:


  1. Thanks so much for sharing this link! I've just started to get into coiling, and this information (so beautifully charted!) is going up on my resource board.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I appreciate and love to read your comments!
