Re: Hmmm, I'm a little lost here.


  Your secondary is the same size as the one that I am currently
building. The length that I got from Wintesla for #23 gage wire is 1921
ft. 24 gage wire comes to 2160 ft. I was able to find an 8 pound spool
of #23 at a local electronics surplus shop. I hope this helps.

        Safe Coiling,
