Re: [TCML] Need coil winding advice

Greetings... (sorry if duplicate) I am designing my first TC and need to build a coil winder. My first
secondary coil will be:
Diameter: 4"
Length: 18 inches
Wire: 26 AWG
Since the coil is not too long, I am thinking about a plywood frame
supporting a motor, turns counter, and arbor. A foot switch would be used as
well as some type of speed control.

Rather than an arbor and a shaft, you could also use a pair of rollers under each end, and just drive one of the rollers. Think of casters or skateboard wheels. The tube you're winding just sits on top of the rollers.
