This makes it quite an easy task. Thank you linuks!
you need something like this...shuttle can be made of plastic or wood, must pass thru the hole of the core....good luck.....

With the big core / little copper combo the lower capacities and DC resistances (copper losses) make better transformers.
thanks, will keep this in mind.....
what is the downside for not utilising the full winding window?
