I use 1000 W electrict heater inside the circuit. Then electrict to the ends of wire about 3 seconds. 1600 W is too fast.

Many use car accu charger in wire heating.

I use a hinged zig zag wiring jig,powered from a 12 volt battery linked up to a charger,you just flick a switch for about 1 sec.This is actually wiring the wax on its own,same as thornes,but a lot cheaper than paying them to do it,and wired better.
