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.
