RE: Big Spark Induction Coil

Your homebrew induction coil is really cool. When I was a young teen, a EE
professor gave me one that was larger than your homebrew outfit. It was used
in classes on transmission lines. The spark would jump over a foot. I don't
have that induction coil anymore. Maybe I can get it back by building a
scaled up version of your outfit. I think I have the materials in storage.
I'll be eagerly awaiting your theory notes so I can begin a design. I always
wanted to build one, but there seemed to be a lack of design procedures in
the literature. Perhaps your theory notes will eliminate the time consuming
hit and miss method. After winding that many pancake coils, you want to hit!
