I have never used ribbon, although I hear it is good. Do you use the same
formulae for this as you would for tubing or wire?

I am trying to make it as flexible as possible, so people can approach it
from different angles. As far as the "profiles" go, I am building something
like that into it whereby people can print it or pass it around as a data
file. It seems that teslaholics need something like this to exchange
information quickly and easily.

Better still. I am trying hard to get a beta copy done so that everyone can
take a look at it and debug, critisize, comment etc. Just have a few more
problems to resolve and it should be taking shape.

Thanks for the suggestions,
