Wire may be red, blue or black.

The above video introduces some 3D printed parts for sale here that help people build a Don Smith model that I introduced in the Resonance Induction Coupler Kit 2 The parts can be ordered here. This is for an 8" diameter secondary coil (which allows for high Q). While different size wire can be used, as we have done many, this model uses #8 wire size so that the middle of the wire from side to side is 8" when wound around the frame. The three different parts snap together to make a rigid frame that will hold any gauge wire. The three other parts are found here and here and here

Wire may be red, blue or black.

In order to make the 11.5" tall spool for this particular model shown above you would need to order a quantity of 4 of the rings, 8 of the long frame supports and 8 of the short frame supports. You can order whatever quantities of these three parts you need to build different sizes of 8" diameter spools. Contact us about ordering specific lengths of wire other than the 90' listed here.

The three parts can be found here:
