> Hi, folks.
> I'd like to sell my Tesla coil, and you guys get first crack
> at it. I've been a lurker here for many years, and have
> enjoyed the hobby. However, the pressures of life have
> caught up with me and I must simplify. It's time to part

> Tesla's birthday, and drew healthy 9" sparks. My record is 11".
> Some basic design specs:
> Frequency = 146 KHz
> Neon Sign Transformer 15kV/30mA
> Multiple static spark gap, with two fans.
> Structure is about 6' tall, on wheels - topload could stand
> to be redone, but most of it is overbuilt (somewhere around
> $800 went into it)
> I also have a second neon sign transform I was planning to
> gang, but I'm just not finding the time. Better to get rid
