Years I use homebrew L-tuner (circuit included). There are 9 positions rotatory switch. variable capacitor may be connected to both ends of inductor or stay free, two additional cap's may be connected to var.cap. That is the same principle as in Elecraft's tuners. I like it.

Two thumbs up for this design. Excellent!
