My First Tesla Coil!
It gives out nice arcs and cornea. I will post photos and video soon, as my workshop reeks of ozone right now.
I can probably get better preformance with using thicker (or no) aligator clips (prototype stage right now) and if I change the primary. The wire got too hard to turn, so near the center there's like 2" of leeway on all sides of the secondary...
sorry about sound quality in the video
the rod in the video is kinda grounded. The rod you see is a thin copper pipe taped to a 3 foot, 1/4 inch thick dowel rod that I'm holding onto.
