Ed and all,
Maybe... maybe not. The best magnet wire available to Tesla used cotton,
silk, paper, or gutta percha as insulating media - all materials with a
high carbon content, and all flammable. There's tantalizing evidence
that carbonaceous materials are usually associated with the formation of
Ball Lightning. Or maybe flash-overs easily turned into fire balls when
the insulating materials caught fire... :^)
