Just a quick question. Given your present knowledge gleaned from extensive
experimentation, don't you think you could build a 2-coil system that would give
9.5 feet for 6KW input? Also, I'd be real interested to know if you ever fire at
higher powers outside your lab. C'mon, I want fish stories!
Did you ever put my big coil photos (the coil on the trailer) into one of your
videos? I know you asked if you could a while back and I don't think I ever
answered. Sorry, be my guest.
