Hi Adam,Regarding EMI or RFI getting back into your house wiring, you can also try installing a properly rated EMI/RFI line filter between the wall plug and the primary inputs to your step-up transformer, if you haven't already done that. All in all, though, I'm not really sure that there is ANY way that is readily available to the hobby level coiler that will effectively squash ALL line interference from getting back to some of your more sensitive electronics, especially with the larger and higher powered SG driven coils. Professional EMI "proof" labs cost hundreds of thousands, if not million$, to construct. Probably, the next best thing available to the hobby level coiler to address this issue is operation of coil inside of a (well grounded) metal barn structure. Some line and radio interference is just the nature of the beast with higher power leveled SG Tesla coiling.

Wow .5 amp..... Not heard of that transformer; sola volt bombarder. Leaves me curious lol. I work for the power company in North Carolina. I would love to get a hold of a big 25 kva tx and see what it could do. Wouldn't know what kind of capacitor to run with it..... It would be all new math problems. Btw: thank you very much for the compliment on my coil. I do appreciate that and also is very good to hear that it appears to be running good from someone in the tesla community! Your sparky is very cool.... Wish I could see it live in person.Do u have a solution for filtering rf that the terry filter doesn't ?I have a terry filter.... Also a rfi filter in line on the mains..... Still have interference; lines on tv. Just wondering if I'm missing a good trick.....Thanks!

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....

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.....
