Re: Primary Coil INSIDE Secondary Coil
Best to go with experience. Greg Leyh built a huge coil (Electrum) with a
helical primary inside the secondary, and it works beautifully. Pictures
of this are posted on his website. His secondary form was quite thick and
provided the necessary insulation--no "suicide". More typical thinner
forms may be subject to electrical breakdown.
On the other hand, from everything Cabbott Sanders has posted, he has never
built a coil with a primary inside the secondary. I would treat his advise
more as unfounded speculation.
