Re: Winding technique

Original poster: Liviu Vasiliu <teslina@xxxxxxxxx>

A lead screw rotated with the coil form together will
allow the clamp to advance on the lenght of the
coilform. My winder is not so complex though. I just
move the clamp and the wire bobbine, by hand, along
their axle, after winding around 5 cm lenght on the
