Roger that. I've gone my whole life without smoking...etc. Don't need to fry my lungs because I'm coiling. Especially while I'm tweaking the tuning or the gap, I get a garage full of O3 before I realize what's going on.
I've been nervous about neighbors - alas the coil is loud. But as long as I'm not buzzing around in the middle of the night, I should be ok. I'm only about 1/4" mile away from a major highway (California Rt 17), which provides a constant background noise unless there's beach traffic on Friday. Everyone has thick windows. I'm probably overly worried.
