Introduction: Jiffycoil's Tesla Coil Projects

I'm new here and I love the high voltage projects that have been put into Instructables format. My passion is building Tesla coils and I wanted to share images of the Tesla coils I have completed. I 'm planning to post Instructables for my future Tesla Coils so watch for them here.

Great work! could you help me out with the specs for the middle sized wooden box one? Thanks!

Feel free to ask the questions you have.

Thanks, theres not really an exact question but what did you use, whats the transformer size and all?

I used a 10kv 23ma oil burner transformer for that build.

great, what are the specs of the other components? adn what is the two bars at the middle? Thanks man!

Beautiful work! All very neat and symmetrical. I'm sure that Nicola would approve of it! :-)

Sorry for not replying sooner. Thanks so much.

so I have been wanting to build a tesla coil for quite a wile it seems that a finally have time to go at it. I have been reading questions from some people regarding the construction process you have said that the coil should be designed around the transformer. so my question is I have found some Transco 5000 v and 6000v will these work to build a coil.

Hi,
As long as the transformer is Non-GFI then it will be fine for a medium size Tesla coil. The transformer should say if it is GFI or not. If it has green red and yellow LEDs on them then they are GFI and will not work for Tesla coils. GFI are put on transformers to protect them in case of short circuit. The way Tesla coils work would tell a GFI protected transformer that there is a short circuit and shut the transformer down. I hope this helps.

What type of capasitor should i used for my 20volt tesla .? Pleas tell me.
