RE: winding the primary?

Hi All,
One must remember that when you buy tubing in a box, it is already wound in
a coil. So all you have to do is reposition it on your form with a minimum
of bending. This will result in a perfect looking coil that your mother
would be proud of with no zigzags or wobbles and all the turns are equally
spaced perfectly.

Reap the benefits, let someone else do the work.
