I remember using these as a kid. Found a little box with three different sizes of them - I moved it to my workbench.

A slight variation of the coiling tool - if you make a tool with 2 parallel pins, one slightly longer than the other, you can insert the lead between them and drive it around to form a good coil. Works well, and does not hurt your fingers :)

Another crazy idea and I like it. Your right about the fingers wrapping a lead around a piece of 18 gauge steel wire.

Why make them when you can buy them ten for $0.29?
Well you could in 1966. :-)

Sprague, I think, used to include a couple of those with each replacement capacitor. That is where I first heard the idea.

With the appropriately colored heat shrink, the splice is practically invisible.
