Hi Stan,I was noticing the capacitance numbers that you were quoting seem awfully small for a SG driven coil of that magnitude (7.5 kVA w/ 12 ft+ discharges). Are you sure that you didn't mean 2X "0.15 uFd, seriesed for 0.075 uFd" instead of 0.015 and 0.0075? I don't see 7.5 nFd being able to store enough energy for each bang to accomplish such an impressive output, unless you were literally running in the THOUSANDS of BPS!

Hey Adam, It'll average 12 to 14'. It's powered by a Sola 15,000 volt bombarder at .5 amp. The caps are 2 -.015mfd Maxwells which figures out to be .0075 if I'm correct. The coil is around 1,200 turns about 52". I'll post some pics of the power supply soon on youtube. Your coil looks and sounds to run great, nice job.From: Adam Merchant <megavolttx@xxxxxxxxx> To: Tesla Coil Mailing List <tesla@xxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Monday, September 26, 2016 12:53 PM Subject: Re: [TCML] Pictures of my upgraded SGTC And....lol....

This one is pretty neat....dancing around the strike rail. Oh.... And I don't think anyone is a jerk. A video is a reasonable request.Also I checked out the sparky matic, by Mr. Gray. Very cool!! How long are those arcs? And what kind of power supply are you using? Curious... Thanks Adam Merchant Sent from my iPhoneOn Sep 23, 2016, at 9:32 PM, Stan Gray <wsmg@xxxxxxx> wrote:Hey Adam. I'm not trying to be a jerk but video is much more appealing then a pile of stills. Check out my youtube channel Stan Gray and Sparky Matic, it was a last minute vid but more dramatic then a pile of stills. Sparky stands 8' tall. It was shot on a smart phone and downloaded to my computer.From: Adam Merchant <megavolttx@xxxxxxxxx> To: tesla@xxxxxxxxxx Sent: Friday, September 23, 2016 2:19 PM Subject: [TCML] Pictures of my upgraded SGTCJust wanted to share..... Very nice improvement with output! 2 NSTs in parallel, 15kV 60 mASorry bout all the individual links... Check em out Some nice pics!
