If I could use flat wire of 1,6mm or even litze flat on the coil than I could use normal trafo wire with 6 times 0,25mm.

In 'Theory of wireless power' I read that 'the dissipation of the coils oscillation energy by conductor resistance is minimum when the ratio of wire diameter to the coils pitch is 60%.'

I assume Tesla figured that 60% out? But he used round wires so this makes me doubt if flat litze or flat wire will work.
To answer my own question. I think I have to go even smaller with the wires to get to 10% of the skindepth I need 0,01mm. I guess if the surface and mass of primary and secondary match it should be ok?
