Maybe 100windings primary and a little less step-up 1:10 so 1000 secondairy.
In between each primary you wind 10 secondairy

Would your above example be suitable in post #11 ?
What would be the typical leakage inductance be ?
Should a shield be put on the outside ?

I am total idiot with transformers, so apologies for stupid questions.

Sort of like bifilar (1 turn primary next to 10 turn secondary, all on the same one single layer) ?


Thanks again,
Patrick

All on a single layer and primary between 0,5 and 1,0mm (depends on how many turns is need on 1 layer)
Secondary 0,15mm - 0,20mm.
All wires can be normal transformer wire (I used for the primary a teflon isolated wire but would not do that a second time)

or you can use from Vacuumschmelze the 6025F (=the same as 2714AF)

This firm sells it:
MES Manz Electronic Systeme OHG | Softmagnetic products | Semiconductors | Busbars | Military and Space | Heat sinks

or the 6025F:
Online Catalog & Consulting

I used the 2714AF (MP3210P4AF) 40 primary windings and 600 secondary windings
Click the image to open in full size.
This looks like a great option.
But what size are the two wire types?
How long did it take to wind? Given the tiny size of these cores.

Is this the same principle as these insanley priced Stepups if so even given the labour costs if indeed the are hand made.

Thanks
This is looking like a great discusion.

I used secondary normal magnet wire. The primary wire is a teflon insulated wire but instead of that you can use a normal magnet wire too.

Yes, most insanely price step-up transformers from "high end" manufactures are the same as this transformer I made or even worse.
I know for sure that Tribute used this core in the past (maybe now Tribute uses the vitrovac 500F but that core is less good but has a higher Al-value because it's even bigger)

thanks esltransformer

What about the time to do the build?
I sit in front of the TV watching sport 4-5 hours a week other wise doing very little, this may keep me busy over the winter

Thanks

The pic shows first wired the secondary with magnet wire and after the primary with teflon, is OK?

NO

I do first the primary wire and then in between the secondary

Just for the record: I can make mc transformers for everybody but i have to do it by hand. That is way to expensive so I advice everybody to wind their own mc transformer.
