TESLA COIL!!! Answered

hi guys,
i was wondering if i could make a small tesla coil with transformer from Personal computer(15o-230 AC to DC 5V), home made capacitors and a whole 12inch cylindrical shape with copper wire (secondary coil).

for my school project... i was able to find this... some information online..but more information will be highly obliged!!

if there is any other easier way of making ..say for without transformer will be great..


I do not know about the transformer from a computer but I know the flyback transformer from the old monitors from a computer can be .http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uy9JYIn1fiQ I do not know if this flyback transformer is from a computer screen maybe it is a old tv..

There are quite a few Tesla coil projects on this site, some of them "solid state".
