Hi Clive,
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 
on-line at: _http://bizarrelabs.com/cat.htm_ (http://bizarrelabs.com/cat.htm)
