Steve,

When you say very low watt loading, what do you mean?

Have you actually calculated the watt loading at working and fining temperatures?

The reason I ask, is that the wire melter I built last year uses 11 gauge A1, and your figures would help me decide when to replace the elements, once they have already gone for a considerable length of time.

In regard to winding elements, I wound my own on a small bench lathe. The first one took an hour, the last one 10 minutes.
