Small Oudin Resonator
I built this coil for Frank Jones. Its mounted on a solid 3/4" slab of bakelite. A 1/4" bakelite machined socket
accepts the secondary coil, and underneath the base a strap of copper connects this to the left binding post.
The binding posts were hand-made and fashioned after H. G. Fischer's Diathermy posts - and have the original
27 thread pitch!
KISS - Keep It Simple, Stupid! (I need to follow this more often!)
Pigeon's eye view. The top is also Bakelite.
A real hobbiest coil - the form was handmade out of tar paper and resin. The bakelite was a gift from my Dad.
I polished the top a bit. Need to do a bit more buffing. Copper strap and cardboard are used for the primary - an age-old formula.
