I realize I can buy a manufactured one, but I want this to be a learning experience.
Hard to say because you haven't filled in your location.QuoteI realize I can buy a manufactured one, but I want this to be a learning experience.Not sure what you mean. They are all manufactured unless you wind your own coil.
Scratch that last suggestion, I meant circuit specialists and I see they're over in Mesa, now. (Too early, need coffee.)
The learning objective is just that, "learning." The final outcome of this projectis to have a functioning benchtop variable AC to DC transformer from 1volts to maybe 24volts. I know I can purchase one on Amazon for a relatively low price, but I want to build one to learn the theory and the functionality.
as it is like learning vacuum tubes circuit. its a bit outdated.
