Coil winder made from 5 mm steel sheet

Hello Hugh. While making the laser cut for the new turbine, we have decided to spoil ourselves and cut the parts for the coil winder from 5 mm metal sheet. We made the coils yesterday and they cam nice and easy. Attached are few images of the parts and an AutoCad drawing of the part. The narrow slot is for the start and end wire. The wide slot is for the adhesive tape to hold the coil before opening the winder front part. The longer screw is to hold the start and end wires so one person can do the whole thing by himself. The spacing between the two parts is maintain by copper or brass 10 mm OD pipe that is cut to 10 mm length and inserted on the 8 mm screws. One can weld the screws head to the back part of the winder, so they stay in place and thus to take it apart you need to open only the middle screw nut. We cover the edges of the metal parts with tape so it will not harm the copper wire while winding It might be an overkill for a workshop but if you make quite few of them coils it is really more easy and the end result is nice. All the best. Noam

    wind turbine is a rotary device that extracts energy from the wind. If the mechanical energy is used directly by machinery, such as for pumping water, cutting lumber or grinding stones, the machine is called a windmill.
