Not a problem.
This is a coil, just sitting there, it's a lump of metal with wire. Put power to it and then magic occurs, it creates a magnetic field. Now this is a
special type of coil called a toroidal coil. Why is this one would wonder. It's because of the way the wire is wound around the metal core and then
the field it generates when voltage is applied. It's a very effective at trapping it's own flux which is great for electronics.
If you look at his graphics and how he made the "donut", then you see the pattern his coil is based on.
Now let's put this in perspective. How old is this new invention of Rodin coils? Just search "toroidal coil radio" and you will find that this goes
back to crystal radio days. In reality, it was probably introduced in the 20's. I've rebuilt radios that had them from the late 30's.
