How to build a Tesla Coil
Microwave Oven Transformer High Voltage Rig
Thats not a Tesla coil it's a slayer exciter. good video though.

Do not play with 230VAC power... you will die lol. Not funny but, try this it's a bit safer and easier.
I made it with INPLIX handbooks ! - andreqeenxa

How to Make a Table-Top Van de Graaff Generator
two things:1. buy a step-down transformer that steps the voltage down to 115 v but this would be alittle counter-intuitive2. just get a transformer with the same output specs that has an input of 230 vThe good thing about this project is that it can be inprovised, really, any transformer would work in this project if the output is high enough.
What volt of battery did u used
Did this really work
In my home, power supplied is 230 V, how can I make tesla coil.
What tools you are using for bending those large copper tubbing???And what the function of oil in these capacitors??
Lol... "buns damage".I know what you meant....it was just a funny thought."....I dunno, I went outside to play with my transformer and the buns just exploded! Well just do pizza."-"Dude, what's wrong with your shorts!?"-"Doc says I got wear this bandage for a month. I was playing with my transformer and caused serious injury to my buns".
Not in the way you probably think. It does create very high voltage which can overcome the potential difference between the coils and nearby devices, thereby allowing it to power nearby things. An example of this would be holding up a florescent light-bulb near it. There may be a spark that arcs to the bulb, but you will see it light up. You could also cut your usb charger short for your phone, and make an antena of sorts and put it near enough to the coil, and the power will go through and power your phone. I do not recomend the latter, and I take no responsibility for whether or not you do that...
This would make a good squirrel (or other pest) trap, provided you monitored it and only connected it to administer the pentaly.This is also a good way to get someone killed. Even if the electricity doesn't cross your chest and stop your heart, touching any other part of your body will cause violent muscle contractions which could cause broken bones or other injuries. I won't even mention the serious buns and tissue damage it will cause!
Tesla himself said te purpose of this was not to have a light show but to bring power to the home. - whisperingsage
Does this actually work to power things? - noahh24
Neon sign transformer. Typically in the range of 6-15 thousand volts and 30-60 milli Amps.
I'll skip question one, as I'm unsure. 2) Recommended NST power ratings are between 10-15 kV @ 30-60 mA. Otherwise, the spark gap may not fire at all. 3) Using mains ground is not good. Rather than a wire in the ground, most pound a 2-4 foot copper pipe in the ground, and use a thick gauge cable to connect to it. 4) The secondary coil's wire is connected to "the metal dome." Also known as a top load, a metallic dome-like structure is placed on top to act as a capacitor, and a break out point for arcs. It can greatly help increase the arc length.
@alarika - try ebaySeems a like an older post and not sure if the original poster is around, but a few questions.1) It looks like you are using the metal tray as one side of the capacitors, so you need to ensure the aluminum foil around the bottles is in contact with the tray, correct?2) Finding NSTs but at 6kV to 7kV. Anything to adjust in the instructions or is it just that the spark is less?3) So, how did you ground the secondary if you can't use your mains ground? Did you stick a wire into the literal ground (which certainly could work)?4) What is that item on the top of the secondary? Just curious, but I assume it is just placed on top of the PVC with no connection to the coil, or did you attach the enameled wire to that metal 'dome'?
Where can i buy the NST
How tall is your secondary coil?? My instructor wants to know how tall it is. Thanks!
"try out a nice microwave oven transformer, and be safe!" is a bit of an oxymoron. Those things will kill you as fast as anything else. Neon Sign Transformers (NST's) are much better suited for beginning HV enthusaists.
