Hi Hans,

	Isn't this the coil which he has immersed in oil? If so, I don't think
the ouput of that coil was anywhere near what Tesla got when he scaled up
ala Colorado Springs magnifier (and what many of the list members have
achieved themselves). Also with the secondary coil in oil, you can get away
 stressing a smaller coil considerably more without worrying about
within the coil form.
