I have built a couple of small or mini disruptive magnifiers, but they 
still require something other than a neon sign transformer. (for long 
life)  The key is in coupling the primary/secondary tightly.  It is tough 
to do in a smaller system, and due to the naturally higher frequency of 
operation, arc quenching goes beyond most folks ability to achieve.  Most 
of my systems have been relatively lightly coupled.  This limits the 
performance to near "two coil" operation, but still retains the super 
advantage of a remote resonator free of all the tank circuitry.
