Re: [TCML] HV Transformer Winding
Finn, how does flipping one of the hv windings remove ground near the
core?? All it does is change the polarity of that coil in relation to
the flux in the core.
BTW, I agree! Phil's got a really (really) nice setup. I'm filled with
massive amounts of envy!

Daring my skull to break, my guess is that the coils should be wound
the same direction:
Visualize all 3 windings on the center leg, wound the same direction.
By center tapping them, you stack them on top of each other,
electrically speaking, and grounding the center makes the ends swing
in each direction.
Now go to mechanical mode, and slide the first winding over to the
side leg: the same flux direction, right?.
Now slide the other winding over to the other side leg: still same
So, magnetically, same situation. Electrically so, so viola: just go
ahead and wind 2 identical coils.
I oppose both Bart and Gary, flipping the coil won`t do any good. We
still want ground closest to the core.
Did you mean flipping the connections?
Cheers, Finn Hammer

I am just off to the workshop now try a temporary coil. I may have
small gauge scrap to wind a very low-voltage primary though, that
need many turns and that could be done by hand.
The reason for not doing this originally is that the lathe (my winding
machine) is all setup for the next secondary, and I don't really want to
break it all down to wind the new primary and then have to set it all up
again for the other secondary. The lathe setup is far from
as I didn't have sufficient centre height as standard. You can see
