[TCML] tesla coil
Here is the link to my TC.
I am new to Tesla Coiling but not to high voltage. I have just done
my first TC, hope to fire it
off in a week or so. What I would like to do is talk to someone on the
phone for 10-15 min.
to get some answer to a few questions. I know (email) but since I had my
wreck and multiple
operation and nerve damage typing kills me. I am attaching the specs. of
my TC and pictures
all of you may see something I miss. I hope someone will send me a phone
so I could call
them, (not pester them to death)

There are two new Franceformer NST, each 12kV and 60 ma. There are 64
each, 0.15 mf 2000 vdc, capacitors that are mounted on 2 Lucite boards,
with bleeder resister across each one. They are connected in
series/parallel for a total capacitance of 37.5 mf. Terry design filter
with Tungsten safety gaps. There is also a line filter. The spark gap is
the Rickard Quick design with a fan. The primary coil is made with 1/4'
copper tube, spaced at 1/4" and uses Lucite as the coil form. The
secondary coil is 6in. wound on light gage PVC pipe, it's winding is
1,645 turns of 26 gage magnet wire, using 2,691' of wire and has been
coated with epoxy. Tesla Map software to design the TC and based on the
calculations it should produce 65" sparks with 20 in. toroid. MY made
toroid is 18in.
