Coil wire insulation
« on: April 19, 2006, 05:28:56 AM »
Hello guys.

I'm fairly new to this and just today learnt that the coil wire should be insulated. Will non-insulated wire work? If it has to be, then how does one insulate it? The thing is that I want to experiment with wires other than copper but I don't know how to go about insulating them. Any tips someone could give me? Thanks!

Normally copper wire is insolated via lacquer, so the current can only go in the wire and not jump to the next turn can try garden wire for fences , they are made out of iron or steel.

Thank you, hartiberlin. That's the first material I'd like to try, but I don't know how one goes about varnishing the wire. Do you know of the process? Does one have to varnish it before winding or can one wind first and the dip the coil in varnish and leave it to dry? I'd believe that insulating before winding would be best, but I don't know how. I'd be thankful if you could point me to a page on it or could tell me the method yourself if you know it. I searched, but had no luck finding it with Google so far.

garden wire comes with a coating of rubber or plastic on it, if you get the right stuff. Also, copper "coil wire" also is pre-varnished. Most of the stuff you will find is.
