Gearing up for a second superconducting magnet test. This time computer controlled. Here is the new bobbin with 133 turns:


It features better contacts for the current leads (kinda crazy you can put 80-100 amps through that thin cable):


I added a thermistor under the hearing coil. The whole heating apparatus is lifted from the reprap.
