A superconducting ohmic heating coil is being built by MIT to be tested in early 1990 at the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI). This 2-m-diameter coil will be wound from Nb3Sn cable-in-conduit conductor. The coil and conductor are briefly described. Manufacturing procedures and problems encountered in the fabrication of the conductor up to August 1988 are considered. Included are descriptions of wire chrome plating, cable manufacture, and conduit fabrication
