[TCML] My first VTTC

Hi all,

Just wanted to show some pictures of my first tesla coil: a VTTC powered with an old RCA 813 pentode I found at a thrift shop.

I’m a little disappointed in that I’ve only been able to generate 10 inch sparks, while pulling about 1KW total.  From the reading I’ve done I was hoping I could reach beyond a foot with this tube.

Enjoy the photos, feel free to ask me any questions, and please, I’ll be delighted to get any criticism or advice on how to improve this thing.  It’s been a fun project, I’ve much enjoyed all the learning, and I now know there’s a lot more to Tesla coils than I had first and naively expected.
