Re: stacked primary \ winding direction

Hi All,
    I am confused as well. I intend to pursue this area a bit more over the
winter. I got waylaid with the big coil. I thought what might be good would
be to try and map the magnetic field with a hall effect device. I must admit
those words mutual inductance bring thoughts of complicated maths to mind.
Maybe it could be done with something like Terry's field plotter. See you on
the 28th Steve.
