The 64k$ Question
Hi, Guys and Gals..............
I am building my second generation Tesla coil. My question
to you,who probably have a lot of experience with this, is:
What type of spark gap would you recomend for the following
Tesla coil (ie. airblast, series w/air,etc.) I will experiment
with everythig else, but I really don't want to waste a lot of
time with this element.........
Xfmr: Two 15kv neons in parralell (60 m.amp ea.)
Cap: 20kv, .025 mfd (CP unit), due in one week
Primary : 14 turns, 3/8 copper, 30 deg. spiral
Secondary: 6" acrylic, 22 ga. magnet wire, 875 turns
Chokes: "Winging it" (maybe recent TCBOR, D.C. Cox ???)
Any help on the spark gap issue would be most appreciated.
I should throw the switch in about two weeks,and will be
eager to share my results with you......
