That's easy, I just clear the dishes off the kitchen table ;-) Terry uses
the floor in his spare room by the looks of it.

Gah! I could do with one of those. I tried winding my DRSSTC secondary by
hand and it was a disaster!

Straight after winding- looks nice

The next morning- a mess due to differential expansion of the copper wire
and HDPE former (or something)

I'm going to rewind it and varnish immediately after winding this time.

Anyway, whether you decide to build a DRSSTC, an OLTC or even some new kind of XYZSSTC we've never heard of, I wish you the very best of luck!
