The arm will be a 38t/27 on a five-layer coil, wound on a .370" long blank. I could have gone to a .400" long stack, but opted to keep plenty of room on the tail-end of the arm. Instead of making a left turn at the top of the stack to get back to the comm, as would normally be necessary on an odd-number-layered coil, I used the last turn to get back diagonally. There's lots of ways to skin a cat when you're winding.

... and bam! Ready to go out for grind/balance. The little guy comes in at .134 ohms. which is way low for a #27, but not surprising considering the .370" long stack. I'm sure it will whistle the theme song from the Andy Griffiths Show... or something!

Thanks, Geary. You know what they say about "idle hands"!
Lately I have a pretty good flow going where I do projects for me (meaning projects that I just want to do, not that I'll keep them) on the side of projects for other people. I have a couple of Hawk arms to do for a racer, and that doesn't take much head-scratching... so this little bad boy made it's way to the front of the line.
