Geoff, there are a few guys on the GLOWBUGS List who 
have experience MAKING and REPAIRING these kinds of coils.

You might try asking Gary, WD4NKA and a few other folks about 
their experience building "Sutter Coils" from scratch.
There may in fact be some information on Gary's web site too.

That is IF you are extremely patient for it to load(!)
