Loose coil

Procedure of making loose coil is same as making tight coil except for the tension
applied on the paper. While starting to roll more tension is applied and later on tension
is eased a little. This makes coil centers small. After reaching the end; the coil is
removed from the tool and allowed to unwind .A drop of glue is applied to the end and
stuck. This is a loose coil. Loose coil forms the basis for other shapes of coils .To get
equal sized loose coils, rolled coils are allowed unwind inside a circle template of same
size. After the coil has relaxed apply glue and secure the loose end.
