Small Bear have a kit here. Looks pretty reasonable, might be a good place to start.

I wanted to get something closer to the EL-Rad style. Seems like everyone is winding on the Epcos cores these days, though I've got nothing against them. The Small Bear sets are good value - compare the cost to Banzai in Germany.

I reckon a 1408 core could wind to wah specs and be potted up quite nicely.

I drew a blank at getting a 1408 core in the UK and $21 was the cheapest postage from the US to UK from Amidon, so on top of their minimum order charge it makes for a rather expensive experiment.

Does anyone know if there is a UK supplier for these? If not, is there anyone who would send me one for a fair price, or trade?

If I knew absolutely that these would wind up to an El-Rad spec, then I'd be more than happy to buy in quantity, but for the time being I just need one to experiment with.
