Hey little bird...I like your ideas but MAN PLEASE do not use a wooden stick to turn HV things on and off as wood can actually become a conductor at
Rubber,ceramic,plastic is what you need but always check the conductivity first friend!
Thanks dude,that book by Tesla is great reading,I have it here already.I do not pretend to understand everything in there-but its still one heck of a
Well worth reading if anyones interested.
Cool coil vid too,the paper burning one looks like an SSTC (solid state tesla coil)which requires a different knowledge set from the sort I am
attempting.They run on DC and micro electronics-and they are well cool.
Maybe one day ill make one like that-they operate within a more acceptable frequency range as well and you can use them in doors with a bit less
likelihood of blowing up your electric meter.
I`ll try to get on with posting the theory and specifications over the next few days.
Thanks for the interest friends.
Good luck with it, I've always wanted to make one of those or a Van de Graaf generator since I found out about them.
Can High voltage kill on its own? I thought it was just 6 milliamps across trhe heart that was lethal?
Oh, also on safety, I don't remember who did this, but don't try to measure the size of the bolts with a metal ruler, I know someone tried to
oh, by the way
You have voted Silcone Synapse for the Way Above Top Secret award. You have two more votes this month.
SS just reading the post again. High Voltage and HIGH FREQUENCY can kill.
I cant remember what Freq tesla coils operate at but high frequency can "walk" quit a distance. High freq em is "related" to ball lightning. So
should you be using a cermic rod or whatever please put up a sheld on the rod. Look up some of the tecktronics high freq probes for an ociliscope.
That will give you an Idea of what I am talking about. Also your friend that deals with 3 phase is good for understanding the voltage, please try to
fing a HAM radio operator to help you understand the dangers of high Freq. No disrespect intended.
hey silicone, i figured id give you some ideas i heard about. try the tesla coil in a van de graff coupled to it. seriously. i do not dabble with such
high volts, but know enough that a wood stick will insulate me at low voltages and low static electric shock, instead of my hand. big difference. that
is what i meant. thank you silicone for the advice.
You see wireless transmission filling all space but when extra load is applied
the original lights dim in response. Well the gas filed bulb should light according to
Tesla and as he said ordinary devices would also be supplied with electricity as
any ordinary wall socket device. So wire less works as long as the power is big.

See amazing spark gap action as gap conducts to output capacitor into coil
during 4 ohm plasma arc ( just some figure Tesla once used) and opens to
send current to zero ( open circuit means a brief zero current period) that
sends the coil into a high voltage spark making the conduction arc again.
The spark gap coil is usually the primary that induces highly charged voltage
into the secondary air core Tesla coil. The continued spark gap circuit action
builds up Tesla coil voltage in what Tesla called the Magnifying Factor of
Reaction Impedance divided by the coil wire Resistance.
