That's quite an improvement. What were these adjustments? Perhaps
they would be useful to others.
What is the size of the secondary that you are using? I would like to
know so that I can roughly compare what I should be getting from my coil.

That's interesting. I saw on the magnifier video that they put a huge
toroid on a coil to keep the sparks from coming off so that the the power
would go entirely into the extra coil. I will have to experiment with
a larger toriod on my coil and see what happens.
