I see.

Here: bobbin length & width, 71 mm and 26 mm respectively. I use roughly 2 mm-thick plastic sheet stock for the bobbin flatwork. Bobbin is approx. 9 mm tall, or clearance between top & bottom flatwork is roughly 5 mm. Polepieces are magnetized slugs, 20 mm long and 6 mm across.

If you use #44 wire to wind your toaster pickups to about 7.5 K, chances are they will sound exactly like the real thing. :mrgreen:
