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....


All the Tesla's being built will float us away on the ether :-D
And a nice reference for magnet wire.   A
