I used 30AWG and build over a black surface, under a bright lamp. Instead of the legs coming straight off the coil, I bend them so they exit from the bottom. I cut one leg shorter to make the install easier.
Photo is for reference only, it is not of the coils I build, just an example of how the legs exit the coil.
