A critical component of the 1.3-GHz nuclear magnetic resonance magnet (1.3 G) program, currently ongoing at the Francis Bitter Magnet Laboratory, Plasma Science and Fusion Center, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and now approaching its final stage, is the all higherature superconductor 800-MHz insert (H800). The insert consists of three nested double-pancake (DP) coils fabricated with 6-mm-wide REBCO conductor. Coil 1, the innermost coil of H800, has already been fabricated and tested at 77 and 4.2 K. In addition, one third of the DPs for Coil 2 have been wound and each DP individually fully tested. Work described here includes details of Coil 1 fabrication: DP winding, DP testing, assembling, joint performance, overbanding, and coil testing; winding details of DPs for Coil 2 and their testing are also included.
