I know we do not realize how blessed we are in this country, compared to many areas of the world.
Imagine if that is all one could afford to have to work with or had acess to work with.

Got to give him credit for ingenuity! He probably saw a picture of a transformer in a book and wound his own. Incredible.... I agree - we don't know how blessed we are. Looks like something that may have been done here in the depression days. I remember my dad telling us about bootlegging coal from closed (mined out) mines. They used to break into closed mines, climb down the air shafts, chip coal by hand with a hammer and chisel, put it into large buckets and hoist them out using a winch. The winch was a tireless rim they bolted onto the back of the model T. All this for a little heat during the depression. They would sell the extra for a quarter for 100 lb bag.
