john what type of diode will you be using?

The diode is NTE5995

Thanks for the interest in this project.  The SS wire cannot be soldered.  I had to create a connection method.  I’m using a 6-32 screw with Helicoil and spring.  I’m drilling a .040” hole into the screw hole to run the wire in then drilling a spot to hold the epoxy.  I am attaching a drawing so you might understand this connection.  This has tested out to make a good contact. 

Thanks

John

that diode is ; 40A, Average; 720VNon-Repetitive Peak Reverse Voltage..
if your pulling all the electrons out of the copper positive choke with emf one directional flow pulses at 0-20khz. would a higher amp diode be more efficient?  i dont know how diodes handle frequency and emf fully.  but i know that diode is acting as  a  wall for very high opposite potentials..  kinda what im say i guess is since this whole electrical process and electric power source is not the usual maybe diodes act differently.?

john i have that IDENTICAL diode have you checked to make sure it works??? mine was broken from the start.....i ordered mine off the internet and upon receiving it it never worked....check it with a meter just to be safe.....

BUT YOU ARE MY HERO!!!.....looks outstanding can't wait for the next step....also the part i worry about is when it the connection from the secondary meets the stainless steel.....switching metal types will cause heat.....i ahve always wondered about that point....but maybe at low amperage high voltage and the diode in between random things like that don't apply......

kinesis,

I am going to use the screw and spring contact for all the connections.  The springs are unplated music wire. 

I intend to cross my secondary wires over on the bobbin and mark the N field of the core.

hmm i can see problems that might arise...but worse comes to worse you can always re-connect it.....will hte secondary spirals being traveling in the same direction as your bifilar coils?...remember the dot orientation.....also this is where connecting the stainless steel bifilar coils flow to either be in the same direction or against each other (if wrong you can always reconnect)....but i think let's say that you have to wind the bifilar chokes and secondary together in the same direction and winding orientation.....so let's say theoretically you wind your ss coils counter clockswise from left to right.....then your secondary would have to be counter clockwise left to right......this is what i have always thought according to the dot orientation......but where it get's tricky is the connecting of the ouputs and inputs of hte bifilar as mentioned prior.

All the coils are wound in the same direction from left to right.  By crossing over the secondary I mean to take the left starting side wire and feed it out on the right and the right ending side wire and feed it back out on the left.  Check the diagram I have the dot orintations right.
