[TCML] Old VDG and Tesla coil found in attic
Several years ago I found a VDG and Tesla coil in an attic doing an
install job near Seattle. I asked the new home owners about the
equipment in their attic and they didn't have the slightest knowledge of
what the "junk" was. They said I could have it as long as I hauled it
out! this was appx 1981 and I have never had a chance to mess with them.
I am now retired and have the time to start the project.
I have placed them on my website:
My questions for the group:
1. anybody recognize either of them? builder? commercial?
2. should I keep the TC "true" (long secondary) when refurbishing it?
3. any ideas on the tube type? schematic? (yes, I can draw it out)
4. what material would be "best" for the belt
I would appreciate any comments from the group that would help restore
them to working condition. (I know, I know... the TC will be a very
poor performer by today's standards... This is a "for-fun" project).
I suspect these were originally built for classroom use or school
science fair use.
