    Yeah, me thinks the coil may be too big. Not sure though. I charged the caps to 25 volts (half I know) and threw the switch and......nada. drained the caps alright just didnt discharge the projectile, not even a little. I would think even at 25 volts something would have happened. Please enlighten me on my mistakes :-(

    Just finished my build...had a bunch of dc caps of different voltages and micro farrads, just needed the right project. used two 40v 68,000 uf. Changed a couple of things only because of the awesome size of these caps :-o. Used the lathe to wind two layers of insulated #14 wire on a 6" long X 3/8" plastic tube. Still deciding on a projectile. Now I just need advice on charging the caps so I can go out and play ;-) Well.....I'm waiting.....Yeah, all I have is a 24 vdc power supply to somehow get me just shy of a 40 volt caps charge...Soooooo............
