Thicker wire ?
Is it suitable for thicker wire e.g. (fused) clapton, juggernaut and all other coil variants ?!

+1 details
Will depend on your needs.

I have this one; Authentic UD V1 Stainless Steel Wire Coiling Jig Tool Kit and swear by it, more than a year later.

But its a bit different in that it doesnt do the coiling for you, you simply wrap it around but very easy to do.

I have had a couple of the other "self winders" and both broke in no time.
This UD jig is all I have used over the past year.

However I dont even bother to push the wire through the hole.
And just wrap it around myself but I doubt it too could handle claptons, etc in the way you are hoping

I have three different coil jigs and while it's a bit more learning to use and more expensive, the one that works best every single time is this: SKU 2994500

I find none of the others does anywhere near as good a job with no hot spots less worrying about whether or not the tension is right once you get how it works.

Also I found unlike the others it didn't get wonky trying to make 28g or less, coils.

Normal Clapton, 20 gauge fine. anything larger you are better off using a screwdriver/rod.

buy SKU 2675400 excellent.

SKU 2675400 is all I use

For really chunky wire SKU 5429510 could be better. I bought a shorter version in a 5 pack "2.5mm stainless rod" from bay . Good to have.
