What size or type of wire was used to wrap the tube? Copper, brass, or what? From the photos I couldn't tell.

Hello My Friends
String was used to wrap the tube. I believe I mentioned that in the text. But the size wasn't noted, which was .025".

AH HA! See, I knew it! There ARE two of him. He's admits it. That's how he gets all this stuff done. I thought I heard a thump in the supposedly empty shop when I visited some time ago.

Hello My Friends
The secret is out, Greg is correct. There are two of me. But I am the smart one. You can tell he's the other one by the blank confused look on his face. And mom always liked me best! :lol:
