    Hello,
    One thing that I can't do fine is coil winding, for example Tesla coi, my secondary coil has many holes and similar, how I can do it better?

    No idea what you mean by "holes and similar".

    You haven't told us how you do it, so how can we advise on a better way?

    I think most folks use a kind of lathe, turning at a very slow speed, to assist in feeding the wire by hand onto the coil form. It is important to keep sufficient tension in the wire while winding the secondary and to avoid irregular spacing of the turns. A foot-operated switch for the lathe motor would help.

    The OP may not have access to a digital camera, or maybe is too embarrassed to show us a picture...:eek:

    maybe ... but to resolve his issues we need to see what he may be doing wrong
    rather than a pic of some one else's coil ;) ;)
