Yesterday was another meeting of the Greater Niwot Area Tesla Society.
Hollingsworth came over and we fired up my 9" coil for the first time.
The larger toroid probably had a beneficial effect, but I can't say
for sure because it effectively decreased the distance between any
grounded object and the coil. I was basically running an RF jacobs
ladder between a piece of grounded pipe and the toroid.
I guess the next thing is to put the coil outside and really throttle
it up to see what it's capable of. Next I'll start fiddling with it
to see how I can increase the output.
Congratulations on the new coil. I would think maybe 100" sparks or longer
might be in the making. What do you have for a power supply?
