I was going to do that, but it's hard to count because I'm using 36 AWG wire. It would be like counting hairs on somebody's head. Plus, the windngs on the outer layer aren't very close becaus by that time I was running out of wire. Also I don't rememer how many layers I had. :(
Oh well. Thanks anyway. If I knew how much wire I used I could also calculate it, but I don't. :(

Hi Steven,

Asuming your secondary is closed wound, count the turns per inch and multiply by the winding length. That'll get you close.

That woul be great...
Except for the fact that I didn't count the number of windings in the secondary and i'm not entirely sure how much wire I used. I know that it was less than 1,000' because I bought a 1,000' roll. But I used some of it to test the winder( I don't know how much) and I ended up with extra. I don't even know how many times I wound it up and down! :(
I'll check it out though. Thanks.
