The manufacturing techniques used for a prototype quadrupole magnet, developed at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory (LBL) for the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) Low Energy Booster (LEB), are described. The SSC LEB Ring employs 96 dipoles and 90 quadrupoles connected in series to form the magnetic lattice, requiring the use of a 21.9 mm×23.0 mm hollow conductor for the quadrupoles. Due to the large conductor size and small bend radii required, development of special fixtures was necessary. A unique coil-forming method with close attention paid to tooling design and special assembly procedures was required to manufacture this prototype to stringent specifications
