[TCML] Morris and Lee
re. MMC Geek thread:
I have scanned the Morris and Lee Tesla Coil plans from 1962 that shows an mmc tank capacitor.
Note the various display resolutions available, and the 'download' button will fetch the original highest resolution verions.
Not sure why DrR mentioned snubbers, this is of course the tank capacitor. I'm sure Frank would laugh about the long aspect ratio design if he was around today - he sure wasn't the only one to get that wrong. He did get a lot right though, as you will see. Note the 'theory' and quiz at the end. Btw, I finally killed this cap after after almost 40 years of use.
Regarding low-aspect ratio coils, Cunningham and Haller describe a very-low aspect coil in their book from 1910 "The Tesla High Frequency Coil - Its construction and Uses." The book also describes making the power transformer, and reprints are/were available. I found this book about the same time in the 60s that I discoviered M&L (the Van De Graff generators sold by Edmunds Scientific in the 60s were made by Morris and Lee). One of these days, I'll finally build one.
Book is online at Amazon:
