Methods for winding coils Answered

When I read up on the coils used in power generation, I found that the wire used is a type of magnet copper wire, and I bought 1600 feet of it on ebay. My only problem now is winding the coil. I figure I can do something like wrap it a few hundred times around a pole thats slightly larger than the rare earth disc magnets I got. Anyone have any suggestions? Btw, most of my information is adapted from normal rotating wind power generators.

Thats pretty cool. Definitely a great way to wind coils, I will probably look into getting the materials to build one of those now that I know it exists, thank you.

Hi , I am trying to start a topic on length of the belt. I saw a number 45.5 centimeters ,what is the magic about this number,given that the frequency increases with the decrease of length and increases with the tension . Is it that it brings the resonance close to a certain frequency to allow a rate of delta Phi close to optimum against displacement ?

For relatively small coils with relatively big wire (hundreds but not thousands of turns), I've found a cordless screwdriver to have a useful speed and torque...
