This paper will present the construction and test results of a ~10 T insert coil solenoid which is part of a proposed ~35 T solenoid being developed under a series of SBIR contracts involving collaboration between Particle Beam Lasers (PBL) and Brookhaven National Laboratory. The solenoid has an inner diameter of 25 mm, outer diameter of ~95 mm and a length of ~70 mm. It consists of 14 single pancake coils made from 4 mm wide 2G HTS conductor from SuperPower Inc., co-wound with a 4 mm wide, 0.025 mm thick stainless steel tape. These are paired into 7 double pancake coils. Each double pancake coil has been individually tested at 77 K before assembly in a complete solenoid. The solenoid is nearly ready for a high field test at ~4K.
