Hi folks, I found out what the copper colored wire is inside the 1ohm 10 watt resistor I have been using in my tests, it is apparently something called Manganin (Copper/Nickel/Manganese) and so probably has a little more inductance than nichrome wire. Just thought the info may be of use. I plan on testing a new circuit setup, will have results fairly soon.
