    if u want to make somthing easy

    just get some wire and make like 100 turnes on a iron bar and anotehr wire to make like 300 turnes on top 100 turn wire

    this will give u 1:3 transformer ratio

    u can use that for 30V or less and u will have alots of voltage losses

    this transformer will be for understanding the methode of the transformer but not for real aplications becasue it cant handel alots of power.

    It depends on what kind of transformer you are trying to make. Are you doing impedance matching? Step up? Step Down?

    A lot of simple transformers can be made by winding magnet wire around a toroid core. The ratio of the number of winding of your primary coil and secondary coil determine the output of the transformer. Wrap your primary coil first and then wrap the secondary over top of the primary.

    The best source for metal is to take apart salvaged inductors and re-use the core, or take apart existing transformers. Be careful re-using the wire because it can short. If you are working with an old transformer, make sure to insulate the primary and secondary. A short would be a very bad thing.

    They are also available from places like Digikey.

    the respond varies by source. the unique action picture and numerous different episodes afterwards advise that the Quintessons outfitted them. interior the comics, the gods Primus and Unicron are seen with the aid of fact the creators. interior the Beast Machines sequence, the Maximals detect that Cybertron became initially an organic and organic worldwide, and that they developed into machines. although, the storyline in Beast Machines is so reviled by the followers that it is been thoroughly deserted as a available beginning place. My answer is they have been on no account 'outfitted' in a typical experience. properly, they have been. Successive transformers are outfitted by their ancestors, we see this in each and every of the numerous variations of the tale. although, no person knows for constructive if there became initially a grasp Craftsman of a few type who created them. provided that cybertron is a thoroughly technological worldwide, quite than an organic and organic one, I think of a few Transformers probable believe in a version of evolution of a few type as properly. yet that talk is previous the scope of this talk board.

    It takes atleast over 9000 beer bottles to build a real working transformer like in the movies. You will have to develop technology further however if you want it to charge its lazers.

    For a toy or for a big power station?
