Tesla Coil overview and plans (and one reply)
To Whom it May consern,
I am very interested in the Telsa coil. I need information on it before
Iconsider building one. It would help greatly if you could send me the
following: General plans for the Tesla Coil, Layman's terms for the
different components, Overview of the general price for everything, and a
general idea as to how it works. Thank you very much for your help!
