So I am thinking of using garden wire as a core material, it is insulated steel wire. I figure I can wrap it around something to give it a form, then cut it an tape it back together. Add winding and shunt and away I go. My theory is that the insulated steel wire as a core would work like a laminate core reduce eddy currents, I realize it is not as efficient as laminates because of "hysteria" loss or something like that, but I think it may work. Any thoughts?
