if you run out of wire on a tesla coils secondary coil can you just solder on a slightly larger wire? Answered

i am making a mini tesla coil and i ran out of wire for the secondary coil and i'm wondering if its possible to just take a slightly thicker piece of wire and solder it on and keep going


sure, just make the joint where you solder the two pieces as smooth as possible to prevent cornea loss and possible arcing.
