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..

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

Use the search-box top-right of every page, then refine your search by clicking on "graphical search" and selecting the kind of projects you want.
