Yes , its not easy . Im copying one that I have.
It will be a feedback head .
Im making everything original, no sense in changing what works.

I am doing the metal work and I have an expert friend who will be making the coils and assembling them and testing...

Maybe in a week or 2 I will have a finished one .

Either way good work

cool , thanks for everyone who is interested.

im hope to finish all the parts this weekend, and then go to testing by next weekend.
the Grampians look like they will be finished first, then Audax come next year I would say.

Magnets? I picked out some neodymiums .
I should have 1 working in another week...
If every thing is perfect first time ( usually never is ) then I will have a handful of these to sell in the beginning of January.
