Subject: [TCML] Seaching for Mike Delosier 

Hello, I recently joined this mailing because I didn't know it existed. I 
don't make tesla coils any more but I produce large Van De Graff generators 
and simple kelvin thunderstorm projects to amuse myself and keep my nephews 

Anyway I visited my local Axe-MAn today and learned that they have a 
customer named Mike Delosier who lives in minnesota and has some 
impressive coils. 

I am hoping very much to contact Mike but I have not been able to find his 
e-mail address. I don't see any recent posts with his name so maybe he is 
not a member anymore? 

So, if anyone knows him, I would be delighted to send him an email. 
Alternatively he can send ME an e-mail as to be less intrusive: 

I did build several decent coils over 20 years ago with home made plate 
class capacitors and a horribly inefficient stationary spark gap. I didn't 
have any protection circuitry in place but somehow my HV transformers 
survived, however my capacitor eventually exploded. 

Now I have three perfect 15,000v 250ma NST's just sitting waiting for a 
purpose - so I think it's time to start planning a new build. I have never 
built a proper solid state coil and am considering this option. But a 
traditional rotary spark-cap coil with high-voltage capacitors would be 
much less effort. The secondary will be 5 Feet and using enameled magnet 

I'm looking for good sources of (cheap) high voltage capacitors and much 
info on recent developments in the field. I especially am interested in 
inductor usage to prevent spikes back to the NST. Also I need some advice 
on secondary wiring cable is there a preferred variety for recent coils? 
Ill use copper tubing for primary. I may also build my own rolled 
capacitors but I'm thinking obtaining newer HV caps in a bank may actually 
be cheaper. 

If there other members in the Minnesota/Wisconsin I would also like to 
connect. I'm desperate to find a powerful coil to blow my nephews minds =) 

Thank you for any help you can provide. I'll be reviewing the lists looking 
for new info also but direct contact for any suggestions would be welcomed.
