In the longer run , printed winding sheets, laminated up and put in a ring binder might be the way to go , but the idea of a book sounds great too.

Isnt it interesting ,copper and iron , with us since the dawn of time , and it took an Irishman to invent the transformer , its like a audio  bunker buster on top , CJ's revelations .

Did anyone send the link to Brian Sowter ?  ;D

Its like the crown jewels of audio winding have been laid bare for all to see , did these guys really do all the layering by hand or is automation the only way to wind sectionalised transformers properly ?

Amazing collection of proper knowledge no doubt!  A book has to follow for sure.

CJ is the details !

Me, just a  humble lover of fine magnetics, not a maker of history ; just doing up my very own reddi with one of them CJ specials.

Good cheers to you, the 'transformer man'.  :)

CJ--- not a blueprint but something for decoration. Thordarson ad from 1947, giving a hint of history (1895!) and an impression of their building. (Seems to be a skyscraper now, empty on the bottom.)

Cool ad, thanks PRR!  i will use that on the website, gonna milk the 30 days then sign up with a domain, somebody is selling the old vacuumbrain.com for $199  but we can get a cheaper extension for $5.99

that xfmr plant must have been raking in the dough, they were right downtown, look at the neighborhood now>

I’ve used 1-and-1 hosting for about 10 years to host my father-in-law’s site. It’s been great. Name recently changed to Ionos.

https://www.ionos.com/hosting/web-hosting

Pretty cheap.

Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're probably right.

> any tips?

I dunno hosting. On advice from someone here I bought from Gandi, it's OK, though sometimes confusing. Not a mistake. More aimed at resellers. For simple US folks, GoDad or 1&1 may be simpler.

Anyway, Gandi mails me every month to tell me all the *new TLDs* available. .com and .net are overfull, but
.app, .shop, .cat, .global, .page, .fan, .luxe, .sport, .eu, and .gg domains opened recently. Sometimes the first year is a buck cheaper than ordinary TLDs. I don't want to look-see if de.luxe is available but you might think of something. While Gandi seems to specialize in promoting new TLDs, I think most outfits can sell you most TLDs, and any host can link a sub-server to your DNS record.

finally got the new domain to point to the godad server,

took 2 days of online help chat with about 5 Russian ladies,

here it is>

https://vacuumbrain.uk/

the old name

https://audiotransformers.godaddysites.com/

still works,

A Record was confusing, did not know what to use for host, if www was needed, exact syntax is important in comp geek land,  did not know about the need for a second A record involving "@"
still do not know about TTL park times vs auto,

don't even want to confront CNAME at this juncture,

now to find a host that does not want to do auto extract from my bank account which may not be easy, a monthly paypal sure would be nice,

here is a pic of what you need for the A record so as to save suffering among future DIY'ers trying to rent space, DNS number is supplied by godaddy , west coast number, >

and just to keep it ontopic,  here is a Fisher OPT which we estimated pri wire size for, this guy is found in the Fisher A100X integrated amplifier and works very well as a git amp OPT with 6BQ5's

weird 15/16" EI lam , 100 EI would probably work fine for the non retentive.   :D

will upload to site

> don't even want to confront CNAME at this juncture,

CNAME is your best friend. The host has One True Name, but many CNAMEs can point to it. It is the simple way to support with/without "www." in front. It is the way to support music. and gleeclub. and tubajam. , with/without www., all on one machine. (Browsers send the hostname they think they want. Your httpd config file maps the multiple hostnames to folders.)

You may not want a screenful of CNAME aliases, as I used to support. But it is a good trick to know.
