Re: Coil Length


I think that the confusion experienced is between an optimal design and a 
workable design.  From what I have seen, tesla coils can come in many 
different shapes and sizes, but the aspect ratio and number of turns 
discussed on this list are the experimentally determined best sizes.

My 4" coil is wound with 24ga. wire.  You would probably be better off
if you used either thicker wire for the 6" coil, or a smaller form for 
the 24 gauge wire.
