If your really interested in building everything from scratch, Reactor,
Transformer, Induction coil, Tesla coil, Motor, etc., try to find a copy of
"Electrical Book for Boys" by Willard Doan, 1959. Very heavy on step-by-step
instructions, very light on theory. Some chapters of this book are available
