Re: Tesla Schematic
Hi All, with reference to Richards posting on 26/08 showing the Tesla
coil Schematic LC oscillator. I have a question which will no doubt
display my horrendous ignorance.
What is the difference between the LC oscillator circuit with the
spark gap connected across the transformer secondary and the LC
oscillator with the capacitor connected across the secondary ??
Which one works better , if any?
By the way, I have recieved my stainless torus which is actually 12.5"
OD and 5.5" ID made from 3" pipe. It looks fantastic, I must grind
down the welds and shotblast the thing, then I am ready to test in
conjunction with my new secondary (15" x 3" Dia wound with 0.4mm
enamelled wire and 3 coats of PU varnish) and my professional spark
gap assembly (3 series gaps using carbon 1" diameter rods)
More power Igor!
