Hi I am building a TeslaCoil with MOT and would like some advise. Have four 2000v MOT and 4 2100 capacitors from the MO Answered

Ok, well I took apart 4 Microwave Ovens and I took the MOT and Capacitors. I already built the secondary with a 4" PVC pipe about 4 feet tall and I bought the primary (copper tube). I am using a fan from MO for my spark gap so it will rotate and cool at the same time. Want some advise on this build before i post it as an instructable. I read somewhere that I need to add something to block MOT's from sucking in too much current. Any help would be great. Thanks

add an incondesant light bulb to keep the current in check.
