Greetings all,

Well, this weekend I finished up the coil to the extent that I was able
to make a lab type setup (no fancy cabinets etc.)  Like any good science
project, it needs a little debugging.  I could probably figure the whole
thing out myself eventually, but why ignore the resources of this list?

Here's what I have and what happened:

Power supply: 4 15kV neons, totalling 150ma output (assuming none are
blown), 28amp 220v. powerstat variac, running at 120v.
