So many people have accumulated a few years under their belt. And through the years our hands tend to take a beating sometimes. Arthritis, tendonitis, broken fingers, missing fingers, severed tendons, etc. Many might think this precludes them from saving money by building their own coils. So I sat and thought about what I would do if my hands were in worse condition than they actually are. (light arthritis, tendonitis, severed and rerouted tendons, broken pip joint, and sausage fingers. (well actually 2nd and 3rd helpings fingers but who's counting... lol) These are a few tricks to make coil building easier Hope this helps. And lets see if you can add any suggestions!
