Hi Steve

I hope to build a small OLTC system as a stepping stone to something
much bigger.  I got my semi-auto coil winding machine finally completed
and debugged  (single layer, space wound or multi-layer [i.e. resonant
charging air core chokes] ).  I'm building several smaller SG and triggered
SG systems using SS Variac as a stepping stone.  Part of delay is getting
my test and assembly "infrastructure" ready for some serious hand-on
