It may be possible to make a multiplier using MV rectifier valves. I dont
know if they can be used for the purpose, but they would probably be more
reliable in a 'solid-state semiconductor unfriendly' enviroment as a tesla
coil produces.

I have a bunchof 866 rectifiers and would be interested in ideas. Anyone
have any?
