Next, we need a way to get wire to the turning tube. The base is again scrap plastic .707" Nylon. The floating casters, like everything else you see used in this project, are from a junk yard. The plastic carton is a seat for the operator, and is equipped with a cushion. The pedestal holding up the spool of wire is from a discarded MIG welder, as is the wire spool adapter support.

The wire transport must move with the operator as the coil is formed. When you're setting up to wind a coil, be sure to find a smooth flat surface for the transport. Bumps and stops are annoying, and show up in the finished product.
