This creates an electromagnetic field around the coil that is capable of lighting up fluorescent and neon light bulbs. It is fairly similar to a Tesla Coil. The Slayer Exciter was the brainst...

It has several advantages over the more common spark gap tesla coil. They are less louder than conventional Tesla coils, yet they can still achieve a respectable output. They can also be made to play music through its spark, whic...

I built this one from parts I had laying around, all I had to buy was magnet wire, in all I spent less than $30! For those building their first coil, I would not suggest using this a standalone source of instructions. This is my first coil,...
