Re: Did I just make a blunder?

Hi Curt,

It makes absolutely no differance at all which direction the secondary or primaries are wound. Everything is fine ;-))

There are some "jokes" running around about the Coriolis effect and other silly things regarding winding direction, but they are just for fun ;-))

At a high theoretical level there might be some tiny reasons to wind them one way or the other, but 99.99% of the time, we could care less...

No worries...

I just wound a new secondary for my coil.  I just
realized that I wound it in the opposite direction as
my primary.  Viewed for the top my primart is
clockwise, but the new secondary is counterclockwise.
I've heard somewhere to wind them in the same
direction.  Is this a problem?

Feeling stupid...
