I understanding the whole winding thing. But the core is the big mystery to me right now, because everyone says you need laminate "electric steel" but that is not readily available nor does it fit into my idea of available/low cost materials for this project. Why not a solid core? is it just a heat thing? Practical infoon the core is lacking as it has been decided that "laminate or nothing" and I find it hard to believe that primitive arc welders used laminate cores.
