If the wire has the proper coating it would handle  being twisted without any problems.  The proper coating would also be resistant to scrapping and would work great for our VicCoil project.  This link gives the performance data of the wire Stan was using.  Unfortunately this is not the coating that is on dankies wire. Separating the two chokes and not winding them bifilar might be the only way to get the lesser quality coated wire to work.  If someone would buy a run of this wire and have it coated with the pyre-ml  I would buy 10 lbs from them.

I wonder if pyre can be applied diy, any idea what temperature is needed to dry or harden it, and how long?

My concern isn't really about the wire scraping during twisting. 

I am more concerned with ruining/scrapping(not scraping) a couple
thousand feet of wire due to wire breakage from the twisting process & the wire being brittle.

It would be hard to tell if there was wire breakage while twisting the wire until it's done and too late, unless the ends
of the wire are available to use an ohmmeter.   

What is the coating on the wire?

Do you think the wire failure was due to dielectric breakdown or abrasion from vibration?
