[TCML] dc tesla coil

I've been playing with Tesla coils since 1954 and about 12 years ago had
started building a medium size coil with abt 1.5kw.   I would now like to
complete the coil.  I would like to try making/using a RSG with one set of
points to charge the tank cap and another set to discharge the cap.  If
this will work I should be able to really simplify the circuit.  And not
need chokes or other protection components.  Will this approach work?  If
so I would try using a variable speed bench grinder as the basic of my
RSG.  Any help would be a greatly appreciated.  Charles
