what did you use to cover between the SS windings and the COPPER windings?

WARNING !!!

The utmost care should be practiced in handling the stainless steel wire.  Any kink will create a weak point that may result in a wire break.

Progress report:
Broken wires resulted in a scraped attempt for my first coil.  I wound 6 more bobbins with chokes tonight.  I took extreme care of the SS wire as to not let it kink.  It’s looking good. I cut out 6 more sets of contact blocks yesterday. The springs arrived today for the connections.  Should have these coils complete by the end of the week.
