      No, my coil is a single one. Used about 4 1/2 metres over a 1 1/2"
      tube (mandrel). I just poked about 6-7" down into the former, bent
      the tubing to lay back down the former, bent it at rt angles at the
      top then started the coiling process. This diameter copper is pretty
      easy to work with, you'll find.
