Graham and other smarty book learning folks,
In magneto theory, I know that wire size and amount of turns is the main variables. But.....
When a coil has a long pickup area,
a longer "time" area where it makes its voltage, what does that affect?
Max voltage? Amperage? Just a longer "on" period?
If one took a lighting coil and shortened its steel core ends down by half, what would the results be?
