[TCML] Spheres and Torroids

    Each can be used on eash, sometimes it seems
    to be practicality issues.  Its easier to
    have a roller and combs inside a sphere than
    'in' a toroid.

    All voltages (charges....) travel on the outside.

>it would seem likely that the two could be used interchangeably.
    And they are, tho some are more commonly used each way.

   And perhaps some other comments on the Tesla coil
   specifics might be had...
