Building a Tesla Coil In 9 Easy Steps!
5V USB Portable Tesla Coilhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZrOns9xqPchttp://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/shars-stewa/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=
if i get a different transformer with a different output voltage, which other parts would i have to change?
Stupid question: did you just wrap the wire around the bolts for the spark gap?
I used a Tesla Coil calculator to figure out the optimal specs based on the hardware I used, unfortunately I don't remember the name of the calculator.
The capacitor polarity doesn't matter for this project, just make sure all capacitors are oriented the same way
There are 3 equations. The first equation provides the secondary voltage, but you will first need to solve for the other 2 equations.Vsecondary = Vprimary * sqrt( Cprimary/Csecondary)Csecondary = the top load + parasitic C from the secondary windingCprimary = C from capacitor arrayThe cost was around $1000
There is a youtube link at the very beginning of this instructable
You should post a video of it or at least a picture of it in use. How long are the sparks?
wouldn't turning the copper wire round and round like that for the primary coil make it very hot?
If you want to make your own eco tool yourself just look for Inplix website. There is all you need to make it :)
how long does this take-ish?
how much does it cost? what is the output?
Stupid question, using a salvaged 942c2op15k-f, and the pins are the same length, which side is power input and which is output in relation to the text, I dont want to blow it and let out the magic smoke :)
Quit Your Job the Classy Way
how did you calculate the capacitance that would be best? I am using a 15kv 30ma transformer and my secondary coil is 3.5 in diameter and take little more than 2 ft tall. I tried using http://deepfriedneon.com/tesla_frame6.html to calculate my capacitance required, and it tells me I need 5.2 nano farads. Any advice?
okay thank you
I am making a school project so is it safe to present to a close proximity of people?
What is the output of this Tesla Coil.I'm making it as my college project and want to know where can this be tested.
So 2" is inch u had it right :) not sure of the other - Twisted freak
hi,can you tell me or send bottom picture of your capacitors wiring. im not engineier so i dont wont make a mistake. - asj
Hey So inch is any number with " so in that case 2" means 2 inch the other one I'm not sure about so I hope this helped a little :) - Twisted freak

hi, great coil. yust on help with metrics what means 2' and what 2''. one is inch i think this with thease two dots above. can some one explain in centimeters, lenght or wide.thanks becouse i canot find it on google. Thanks for help
What kind of clips did you use to clip the wire on the primary coil?
Whats the cost of building one like you did?
