I am curious, as I'd imagine many on this group are, about your
giant coil. From your description it sounds like it was a very major
undertaking - both time-wise and financially! From what I know of my
Colorado Springs Notes, it sounds like your 25 ft. arcs are about as long as
the longest Tesla ever reported (point to point).
Was there some reason for building it other than for pure fun?
