Hello all !
I have a BIG problem with my coil.
It won't fire !!
I can get a continous spark from spark gaps but no
sparks from the toroid.
here is my coil setup:
40 inches tall and 4,4 inches wide secondary wound with 28AWQ wire.
16 turn primary (cause of the prizes of copper pipe I had
to use heavy ground wire)
two 4 kv neontransformes
