Thanks... is the other winding just the other side of the tap? It seems
like you're saying that when there is a tap it creates two windings on the
same transformer. So to accomplish this I would end up with a winding of X
turns with a tap soldered in at X/2 turns?
Interesting idea, makes sense though. Do I have the right of it now?
Thanks for your help. :)
