Bingo Kent -

Lefthand and Righthand rule dates way back. your description makes sense to me and I'll tell you that coil bugged the heck out of me to where i was reduced to winding a string around a dowel rod and flipping it end to end. I do not know why but it did not give me the wave form i wanted until i rewound it. Here are my wave forms - rectified and full wave.

One the waveshape issue you can trace a large sine wave, set the paper down in front of you and fold the top section down over the bottom with your crease half way up the positive peak. Then the same with the bottom folding it up over the top half way up the negative peak. Put it upto the light and what do you see? To rectify it fold it in half top to bottom.
