Re: [TCML] Chris Bohrs' RF burn

Without doubt, VTTCs can cause internal burns while
bigger spark gap coils can both deliver shock and
cause internal burns.
Contrary to popular belief I consider tesla devices
quite a dangerous toys.

I've had the same thing from my solid state coil, I get RF burns from
touching just about anything conductive near the coil, including another
secondary, the variac case, wheel (its an old one with a metal knob for some
reason). Another secondary (or anything conductive) near a runnign coil
would intercept enough of the field near the coil to have some voltage
induced in it.
