How can you splice magnet wire? Answered

I am planning to build a tesla coil, and eventually a really big one, and when I don't think I could get a long enough roll of magnet wire.  Would it be possible to simple twist or solder two ends and then enamel them or something and still have it work, I know the coils are supose to be flawless.

You'd be ok with a lapped splice, mechanicaly, but its not going to help the coil electrically. YOu can buy MILES of wire from various sources....
