While I'm here ... <don't want to take away from Petee's post>

Wrapping by hand, rather than by a power wrapper, gives me the feel of everything I'm doing. I'm very AR, and I need to feel the threads/silks on my fingers to know it's exactly where I want it, or any tiny imperfection. Best take care of it before the finish goes on ....
