I once wound a toroidal transformer by hand. trust me it is no fun. IE transformers are easy just wind the coils around a sq. or rectangular wooden peg then stuff in the laminate plates and tack weld the I to them. However a toroidal is vastly more efficient than an IE transformer. the magnetic field is more concentrated yielding a higher tesla they use far less iron in the core than the laminate type and one major plus is there is lower noise
So many things I promise to do. Make a harpsichord, pick up the French Horn again... I don't have time to die I'm to busy!
I'm probably young enough to be your son Frank. But one stark fact has hit me recently. Been working for 34 years solid. There aren't 34 left. Gotta make what I have left count!
