No, I didn't recommend
check the windings! - We ordered 6 units. When the lab reports came in the 5-turn connection was often producing more deflection than the 10-turn. I peeled back the tape and found that 4 of the 6 units had the 5-turn winding connected to the 10-turn terminal and vice versa. I will paste labels over the original markings.
