WARNING !!!

The utmost care should be practiced in handling the stainless steel wire.  Any kink will create a weak point that may result in a wire break.

Another broke wire leads to another scraped choke, primary, and tap wind.  Damn!!!!  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10
O. K. I'll start again. 
More progress reports to come.
John

THIS IS SO * DAMN IMPORTANT.....SERIOUSLY.......UNLESS YOU WANTED TO GO CRAZY I WOULD URGE YOU TO WIND WITH PATIENCE.

john for the secondary windings how are they wound.....clockwise or counter clockwise if i am looking at the bobbin from the right side.....this is a key factor in the orientation of the magnetic field.....i know you have wound them all in the same direction but it might either be all correct or all incorrect.

Kinesisfilms,
The wires are all wraped counter clockwise from right to left.  Looking at the bobbin from the right side with the taps being the front side the wires are wraped counter clockwise the closest to you first then ending away from you  .

john the b field for the secondary is not facing the diode.....it is in fact magnetically facing the other resonant charging choke.....all hte arrows are backwards!.....i am not home at the moment but this is such a simple fix...i will verify this when i am home and testing the coil.......i will also draw up an image of what is happening.....since all the coils are wound in the same direction there is no real problem.....all that has to be done is switch around the connections with some alligator clips and i can retest.....but i will draw up what i am seeing and you can confirm if this is correct or not....i still may be may be wrong in my interpretation if i am not seeing the rotation correctly from the right side.....so i will draw this when i get home.

im still not home buti have drawn out the magnetic B fields orientations.....

the chokes are in the correct orientation but the secondary is backwards.

this is the magnetic field in side the coil an it's direction......

(http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y2/kinesisfilms/coilcounterclockwise.jpg)

look at the connections and you will notice that in fact this is how the magnetic and coil orientation is in the coil......there is a mistake in design...... coil orientation is not CONNECTED in same direction...it is wound properly but connected incorrectly.

(http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y2/kinesisfilms/mistakeorientation.jpg)


H should be connected to D with the diode.....this will fix everything......really take a look at this and tell me if you see what i'm saying......it is the simple right hand rule......and the direction of the coil orientation is in fact incorrect by Connection not by winding.........so this is a very simpel fix.......i am excited!!! maybe this will solve the current dilemas with the bifilar in phase windings.

so correct orientation is
C to H
D to E
F to G

just need to flip the c to h connection so h is connected to d

i will try the correct orientation tonight john.

this could be it so keep your fingers crossed.

kinesisfilms,

The secondary wires cross in the coil:  the N. end goes back to the S. side and the S. end comes over to the N. side
