My $.02 on the nail issue: Nails aren't made to 'exacting' specifications
and the material certainly is homogenious. I know the value of good
core material first hand. In the late 70's I bought one of the first
Ten-Tec Triton IV's with permeability tuning. They managed to get
a 'sour' run coils that went into those vfo's. That thing would move
around the band faster than a cat on speed. The great folks at
Ten-Tec quickly caught the problem and replaced those vfo's, but it
made a lasting impression on me about the quality of core material. For
a quick 'lemme see what would happen' it might be ok, but don't put that
on our ham bands.
