TVF Coil Challenge!
Alright, ladies and gentlemen! We tried this before, and it fell apart halfway through, so let's try again! 

This one will NOT be a competition. Just "show and tell" so we can see some cool coils. 

There's no limit on who can join. If you just started making coils, then post those new shitty coils and get some tips from the pros! If you're a pro, then show off your MAD SKILLZ and make something awesome! 

The rules are as follows:

  1. Obviously, they must be coils you made yourself. And buying staggered fused clapton wire and wrapping it a few times doesn't count. 
  2. We need pics, people! Take some pics while you're building and a pic of the finished product. Would love to see what people are working with. 
  3. Have fun! Seriously, I want as much participation as possible. If you suck at building, I don't care. I just want to see your coils. 
  4. New coils only! Don't post pics of coils you made two weeks ago or two years ago or two days ago. Make something special! Wire doesn't cost much, and if someone as cheap as me is willing to waste a bit on making pretty coils for this then YOU CAN TOO! 

That's all I got. We could do a theme per week like last time, or just post a coil a week with no restrictions on what kind of coil it is, whatever you guys think would be best. This is just to judge interest, so if you want in, post below! 

All the regulars! Anyone who builds coils. I'm looking at you, gentlydoingit*, PaulS, TinWhisker, bibliora, Don, Spasmod, Robjenko, Umi, Chuck-Drl, Whiskeywarrior, Avatar, Don29palms, ecignut, and anyone I forgot but who's on here regularly, I'd love to see some coil porn from you! (I know some of you use pre-made coils, so if you don't want in then just mention it below) 

So anyone who wants in, even just to make one coil, say so below. Since this isn't a competition, there's no pressure to do it every single week. I'm thinking it'd be fun to do a new coil every week through the end of February, but of course if you want to post one the first week and not again, cool. If you don't post one the whole time and just put one up at the last week, cool. 

But please, we need more than three people posting. So commit to make at least one coil, and comment here to tell me you're interested.

RE: TVF Coil Challenge!
I'm willing to post some shitty single wire coils. Their so bad it should encourage others to post their work.

RE: TVF Coil Challenge!
That's a good point, Don. I think one of these days I'll do a write-up in the FAQ with how to do various things on the forum like that. Basically, you need to use a separate photo upload service such as Flickr or Photobucket. Then you click "share" on the photo you want to share, and copy the URL link from there. Then here on the forum when you post a reply, there's a small button that looks like a Polaroid picture, just to the left of the envelope in the reply toolbar. Click that, paste the link there, and it should insert the photo into your reply. I'll post a more detailed description in the FAQ along with pics to show how it's done just for future reference. 

Edit: I've just written an FAQ post about how to post pictures on the forum. Click here to read it. There are pretty pictures and everything! Geez, I have too much time on my hands.

Until I can emulate a coil to the standard of Don's famous one I will not be showing any of mine - even if I knew how to do it. I have been trying for weeks to make a coil like that but have totally failed - the patience and skill involved is too much for me - really difficult and I have now given up[Image: smile.gif].
