Some progress tonight.

Completed secondary bore.

I even managed to get a few turns of 36 AWG on tonight,

400 turn per gap.  When completed it will be 8,000 turns ;-)


Thanks,
Burntwire

i love working with aluminum, however there is not much call for that in the wfc project, i've done some work with different kinds of plastics, some get really stringing and caught up in everything

No pics tonight but I'll post some tomorrow I made it through 1,800 turns tonight with no broken wire !!!
Also I put a digital counter on my lathe. anyone who is going to turn coils on a lathe I'd would highly reccommend the 29bucks plus a few switches.  Man so much easier not having to keep count.  Without that addition I would have only put on around 900 or so tonight.

later all,
Burntwire

can you post a picture of your counter on the lathe? i will be winding mine on the lathe, so that would be of interest :)

also what rpm are you using while you wind?
