Ver nice clean looking coil you got there! I'm curious, how do your
primary taps work? It looks like needles sticking out of there, do you
just loosen the screw and push the needles through the insulation with
your fingers, or how does that work? It would be cool if turning the
screws moved the probes in and out.
