It is possible to wind toroids and bobbins at home or at a factory. Kits can be purchased offline that have the proper materials and instructions. Winding toroid is difficult and requires more knowledge and tools than is provided in a standard kit. Toroids are used for making electric circuits, oscillator filters, and even transformers. With time and practice, it is possible to easily and smoothly wind toroids, but it is best to trust trained professionals in the field.
The amount of money that must be spent on tools is extensive. Some basic necessities include a magnifying visor, set of small screwdrivers, soldering iron/pot, ohmmeter, and more. Once you have all the proper tools, you must go through the painstaking process of creating/winding the toroid. You must:
- Wind the toroid
- Prepare the leads
- Remove the enamel
- Space leads around toroid
- Mount and Solder the toroid
Each step takes time and it is possible to make mistakes while creating the toroid coil. Trusting professional toroid and bobbin companies will allow you to get properly functioning toroids. Not only that, you will be able to get more toroids at a quicker rate.
Of course, it is possible to build toroid coils D.I.Y, but it is time consuming and difficult. Trust professionals to help create toroids and do toroid winding.
