My try on the.... tesla coil. I need some help.
Hi. I made this tesla coil out of scrounged wire from a crt tv, a old 120 V.A.C to 12 V.A.C transformer (reversed), pvc pipe and a brass nob for the "toroid". When i plugged it in , the outlet i was plugging it into arced?! Do I have it wired right? I used the schemetics from the book "The Boy Scientist" by Popular Mechanics.
Thanks in advance.
P.S: srry about the bad pics
