Re: Rule or Rules of Thumb?
I used to wind to resistance because that was how I was taught, took longer than it should have to realize it was futile so anymore I think in terms of turn count. Sometimes you have to transfer ohms into turns dealing with coils of an unknown spec. Sometimes if its shorted out and its a one pickup instalation where you cant get a good ohm reading off the other coil you have to take a guess by coil size and hopefully having seen other examples similar to it you can guess at a turn count and come pretty close.
