RJ> What gauge magnet wire did you use for your 6" diameter
RJ> coil, and how tall was it?
That coil was wound with #21, double Formvar enamel insulated
magnet wire and the winding length is about 30 inches. When I go
to wind a replacement for that coil the replacement will be: 6.25
inch diameter PVC plastic "drain" pipe (same as before) wound
with #22 double Formvar magnet wire, about 900 turns, for a
winding length of about 24 inches. The actual coil form will be
about 27 inches long, so there will be a space at the bottom to
mount the ground plate.

That's a nice complement: you must have said some nice things
about the stuff I showed you. BTW, be sure to document your coil
building and firing on video, or a least take some snapshots.
... If all else fails... Throw another megavolt across it!
