I need to build small chokes for my AD1865 DAC. After some calculation, it comes to specific wire length, turns, and layers. In order to maintain the stiffness of the winding, I have to use what do I have now (no winding machine here). So it seems that the combination between hands and foot does the job perfectly 😉

Four chokes could be done within less than 1 hour. Not the best winding on earth, but it’s just enough for my purpose.

Not a bad result for newbie, huh? The different around 1-2 uH or around 1%. I can make it better next time for sure! 🙂
