remember this post?
By the way - it is simple enough to raise the resistance of most pre-wound coils simply by using each leg to add an extra half wrap to each side of the coil (which can also make them longer - yes that is also possible).

Yeah, I remember it, he just made it. and he's sadly wrong, as I've just explained twice. If the length does not change, how are you rearranging molecules to become more dense with no extra metal?
