Re: [TCML] tesla coil


Sorry to hear of your misfortune and accompanying health issues, but glad to hear of your making at least a partial recovery to be able to continue your pursuits into this fascinating hobby.  I should send my wife to your Flickr site next time she complains about all of MY “junk”! I directed most all of my coil building energy (and resources) to my big pig driven “Green Monster” spark gap Tesla coil, so the Green Monster is the only working coil that I own at the moment. 


These videos are several years old and I have made a few minor changes to this beast since these were shot. However, it is still just a few inches shy of 8 ft. tall and the output spark performance is still the same, if not better!

I also have a few pics on Flickr, but this stuff has also not been updated since a bout 2008.


Of course your “man-cave” collection is considerably larger than my own (and more organized).

PS: Your accent on your vids sounds quite “Southern” to me. ;^) I am located in the Memphis area.

Hi Everyone
     I have updated my Flickr site to show my Tesla coil making form now 
to beginning.
I have not been on here in while, had a wreck in 2010 7 operations later 
just starting to get
around again. Gone blind from a drug they gave me for nerve pain, had to 
operate on
both eyes to see again, but can not see up close any more. My next coil 
will be a DRSSTC
bipolar, going for 30 in arc's, the last thing I will make is a 900KV 
Van De Graaf Generator
that will be 6FT. tall with a 24 ball on top. I love doing this but eyes 
and health want let
me do it any more. The bipolar is already started when finish I will do 
video on it and post it.
If anyone want to look at the flick site here is the link.
Still looking for design idea's on the bipolar.
Thanks for all the help from people on here.
