    Thx for responding. I'll try to optimize it.

  • building the poor-mans mini tesla coil ( slayer exciter)

    Hi Max.I have been fighting with that project for over 30h. My slayer exciter works, however not as good as yours does. I have filmed it to show it to my friend: My stuff:-12V DC power supply-10kOhm resistor-3x100nF ceramic capacitor in parallel-MJE3055T transistor -940 turns of 0.32mm thick wire-aaaaaand... I tried 4 or 3 turns of 1mm thick wire, 3 turns of 1.29mm thick but there I can't see any change,When I put 5kOhm insted of 10kOhm it is barely better. I have tried changing the top load (from 100mm diameter styrofoam sphere coated aluminum foil to one hard drive disc) but it doesn't work. I decided to take a look at primary coil. I tried to put it higher or lower on the secondary. Put it closer and further. Put the turns close and far of each other BUT it doesn't work.Here are some...see more »Hi Max.I have been fighting with that project for over 30h.

On the primary there's also a connection, but I checked it and it doesn't drop the voltage of the battery that I tested.Pleace help me.
