RE: EI transformer construction doesn't always mean air gap

Looks like there was some pruning done in this thread. I think if you are going for efficiency, there won't be an air gap, and the laminations supply a complete circuit. Of course, if the cores are designed to handle DC, there will need to be a gap to prevent saturation, same as with toroids that have a gap cut when used for choke applications.
