Finishing Coil End Turns
The bottom end-turns (non-lead-end) are usually laced to form a neat package without loose strands of magnet wire coils. Lead wires of the specified type, size, and length are connected to the magnet wire coils using high temperature solder. Brazing is also an available method. Lead connections are then laced into the top end-turns (lead end) to hold them securely in place. Using a press and a specially made forming fixture, the magnet wire coils are formed (compressed) into their required dimensions.


What the heck are you up to?? Roll your own coils? I've never heard of this but just Googled it to see what showed up and it's about how coils are made!
