As I was winding my secondary coil, I was indeed wondering how it could work, having multiple layeres, but my teacher said I should, and he doesn't like to be second guessed and I figured he must be right, since, after all, he did build one in college, so I didn't say anything. and I have researched my tc and nothing I found mentoined there only being 1 layer. I guess that's just because it's so rudementary that nobody bothered to includ that information on their website. So I was just doing what my teacher said.
From now on, I'm paying attention to you guys cusz ya'll know what your doin.

Then I would suggest that you spend more time
researching and less time asking silly questions
and/or making it up as you go. How could you possibly
expect a secondary with multiple layers to work???
Don't get me wrong. There are "right" questions, and
"wrong" questions. Some of your questions lead us to
believe that you haven't done your
"homework/research". Most of your questions are
answered or even discussed in depth in the archives.
Check the archives and surf the "Ring". If you're on a
limited time and budget, why not try a time tested
