Publication Abstract: The design of the 12 GeV Torus required the construction of six superconducting coils with a unique geometry required for the experimental needs of Jefferson Labs Hall B. Each of these coils consists of 234 turns of copper stabilized superconducting cable conduction cooled by 4.6 kelvin gas. The finished coils are each roughly 2 X 4 X 0.05 meters and supported in an aluminum coil case. Because of its geometry new tooling and manufacturing methods had to be developed for each stage of construction. The tooling was designed and developed while producing a practice coil at Fermi National Laboratory. The paper will describe the tooling and manufacturing techniques required to produce the six production coils and two spare coils required by the project. Projects status and future plans are also presented.
