LandoLincoln, I have stainless wire (Safety Wire). It's 0.02 diameter, it is what I used to
hold the coil when I put it into the oven. I was hoping to have the coil without any wires,

Unfortunately the rPi only pushed 3 volts on the gpio pins and this relay needs 5V to trigger.
You will need a 5v supply, probably the same driving you pi, and then a transistor that is
