Thats only about 690 turns on the sec. ? I have #26 wound to a length of 23.5" ,'bout 1300 turns , 1/4" copper tube pri. tapped at the 12th turn with a .02mfd rolled (TCBOR ) cap and a 6" by 26" toroid , imput APROX 2600-2800 watts,......so much for the 1500turn rule , hey ? I was running this same set up with a #22 wire sec. before, there may have been a slight improvement with the smaller wire.....I do have an extra 36" by 7" toroid hangin' around, and an exta .02 cap, it may be time to get a little crazy and try it out !
Oh, wat was your input ? kVA ? thanks,dave
