Resonating my tesla coil? Answered
I have heard a little about resonating a tesla coil and wan't to make sure that it is going to before I spend money for my primary (copper is expensive). My secondary has about 1400 turns of wire. I am going to be using a bucket capacitor like The Geek Group on youtube built, and a 60 Hz high voltage transformer. My primary will hopefully be 1/4 inch, and I wan't to know how many turns I need and if I can do a funnel looking shape like this one Tesla Coil. One other thing is that my tesla coil is 30 inches tall, so does my primary need to get closer to the top to work. I think I got all of the primaries and secondaries right, I know which is which, but sometimes I swap the words. It would be a great help if you answered my question.
