I'm not trying to stomp your dream, but it might be best to start much
smaller at around 3-4 feet first. It will give you a better understanding
of how things work before building such a beast. That might also be part
of what is scarring off suppliers of needed parts.

Hello to all.
I thought I should introduce myself as I will no doubt be seeking much
help as I embark on my first Tesla coil project. :-)
I am planning on building my first coil ASAP and would be gratful for any
help and advice you may be able to offer. I would like to start of by
building a medium sized coil (I know I should really start with a small
one but I have this habbit of trying to running before I can walk ) and
would like to find out some information on where to find and how too's. I
am based in West Sussex UK and as hard as I have treid I am finding it
difficult to locate suppliers for second hand pole pigs and other High
voltage stuff that I could use for coil making.
As I will be starting to collect the compoents from scratch I am flexible
on the design and component layout of the coil, but I would like to
produce a coil that will produce stremers of at least 15ft to start with.
I am mad (probably) :-) but i fell that with my electronics knowlege and
willing to learn feel this may be just possible with your help.
For this size coil would it be more prudent to go the Power distribution
transformer route or a bank of MOV transformers ect. As i can see
advantages in both. and would a coil this size be best suited to a Rotary
spark gap or static .. ect.
If anyone has any thoughts on this I would be very gratful for your input.
Thanks in advance
