TC Final Plans
Original poster: "CJ Moore by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>" <wizard1234-at-home-dot-com>
I am finalizing my plans for my next tesla coil, and was hope that the list
could look it over, possibly point out flaws, expected lifetime and
I plan on using:
2 9kv 60 ma NSTS for a total of 9 kv 120 ma
Terry's NST protection circuit (to the letter if it works with my NST's)
.03 uf 35kv Maxwell Pulse Capacitor (threads on the side version)
SRSG - by modifying a 1725 RPM 1/2 HP for salient pole operation - 1/8 inch
tungsten welding rods as both flying and stationary electrodes. Spacing will be
as close as I can get it 1/32 of an inch (hopefully)
Flat primary coil with 3/8 inch copper tubing spaced at .5 inch
5 inch by 30 inch secondary with 22 wire with heavy insulation.
Toriod - undecided
note: the SRSG may not work out, as I am having a hard time trying to figure
out how to make the modifications. So I may end up using a vacuum quenched or
an air blow static gap.
Thanks for the input!
