Additional Components

Step 2: Assemble All Components

Assemble all components to the PCB. Put components in accordance with the image on the PCB.

Step 3: Result

After all components are installed. Turn on the Tesla Coil using a 12V DC Adapter.

Bring the incandescent light to the coil. If the circuit is working, the incandescent LED will light.
