    --Am thinking of making some custom solenoid valves for a special
    project but am clueless about coils. What I would like to find is a primer
    that describes the parameters and their effects; i.e. x turns of 22ga wire
    on a mandrel of y dia will produce n ounces of force at one volt or some
    such. Any pointers appreciated.

    See if you can pick up a used copy of "Solenoids Electro-magnets and
    Electro-magnetic Windings" By Harles N Underhill ISBN 1-55918-096.
    Originally published in 1914 and reprinted in 1992.

    Has everything you need and a lot of stuff you probably haven't
    thought of. Designs with all shapes and sizes, from small pull
    solenoids to lifting electromagnets used with cranes. Easy to
    understand and with several useful tables to make designing easy.
