Hi All,

I was pondering on the building of my new primary coil that is being made out
of 1" dia soft copper tubing. I thought I could save space by flattening the
tubing first, possibly using 2 rollers and a crank of some sort. 
Does anyone see a problem with this idea, before I flatten my Cu investment?

	Any edge on your primary will be a source of arcing 
to your secondary, to ground, even to the nearby windings. A
round conductor is best.
