Where Can I Buy a QEG?

We often get asked the question: “Where can I buy a QEG?” You cannot buy a ready made QEG from a supplier yet, you will need to build one yourself or hire someone to build one for you. You can use the manual to source the parts yourself or you can purchase the core and kit from Torelco. The FTW organization does not sell QEG’s, we build prototypes and teach others how to build through educational materials.
