OK. I know of the magic ratio for the secondary being alpprox. 4.5 -
1. Are there ratio's for the PRIMARY?? Height to diameter or whatever. I
am thinking of a cone-shaped primary. I will be using 1/4" copper pipe,
with a 1/4" gap, giving 1/2" on center between windings. Is there a
specific ratio I should use for height/angle, or primary/secondary size?
I am currently looking at a 4" secondary, but I know it's out of ratio for
the height. I built it before I knew about that. :( I want to build an
8" secondary, following the 4.5 - 1 ratio to use with my new polepig. I
want this coil to be built close enough to the "standard" so I can
Any help you tesla masters can give a newbie would be greatly appreciated.
