I built a really fancy one, but the actual operation
is no different from the run of the mill coat-hanger
Jacob's Ladder. It uses flat copper rod supported by
ceramic insulators, and has plexiglass on the front
and back. There is also a small fan in the bottom that
attaches to a long hose so you can blow the ozone and
nitric acid out a handy window. It uses a 9KV 15mA NST
for the high voltage.
I have a couple of pictures in the file area of the NW
I don't think a Tesla Coil would work well as the high
voltage for a Jacob's Ladder. Too easy for the high
frequency high voltage to just make streamers across
the electrodes that don't rise.
