******************************************
For winding Tesla Secondary coils the general
consensus is to use number 22 AWG, or larger
diameter, double Formvar Magnet wire. Often
surplus partial spools of odd wire sizes are
found, so I took time to post a more complete

chart of AWG numbers and fractional diameters
than is usually available.
