If you're thinking about getting into coiling, or, like me,
gathering the parts, don't discount your local neon sign repair places.
Yesterday, I went to visit the only neon sign repairman for nearly 100
miles, and he had stacks, I would say about 50 transformers just lying
there. When I told him what I was working on, he decided to give me 2
working ones, along with 4 shorted ones to work on.
Granted, they're 15kV 30 mA, so they're kinda small in output
current, but they're free, so I should be able to gang them up.
I cut two hangers, got a lamp cord, and had a Jacob's Ladder in
no time to amaze and amuse my kids, my neighbor, and my wife. Well, not
my wife. Maybe I shouldn't have cut the cord from that lamp. . .
