(then again, if you get it to the centre with the right number of turns then you can't go far wrong, but i like comparing stuff as a further reassurance)

Did you ever work out how many turns it took? I have just purchased a 'squib' off ebay and a bit worried about breaking it trying to find the centre point. Mine seems to turn constnatly with little resistance!
