Given Bill's comment, and others.. I have to ask -
who else here was given the 'coiling' bug by the Griffith Observetory
[My introduction was in the early seventies .. pre-teen, it only took
me 20+ years to scratch together the components for a bigger coil. I
settled for ignition coil like systems for most of that time :)]
