working in this direction.

so we need to remove the strike rail and lift the coil upper from the
do you see a giant strike rail or stupid wide flat primary here? no? me too,
nevertheless in "most coils" they are still present. why not make primary
besides - your oltc2 ideally matches for this - only 1 turn, but instead of
this you`ve taken an "old 4.5" x 13" spark gap coil" - why?

i`ve read that we should use 2 hats - small & big, small one protects the
secondary, large - helps us to make big sparks :-)

first - if one specific person doesn`t have "120 foot sparks" that doesn`t
mean _anything_ - you know what i mean ;-)
second - i`am very very very sorry guys, coz this book costs only about $5
as like this for example:
i`ve bought it just for fun, now it`s on my shelf, i`ve no time to read it,
but maybe some day - who knows? :-)))
I have run coils up to 20KW in residential neighborhoods. I have
received death threats and have had the police, fire, and department of
water and power all show up at the same time. Screw 'em all. Keep firin'.
