Sounds like you've really got that coil hummin now!! Glad to see the cap
gap firing didn't continue with your higher value tank cap. I guess your at
5 joules or so now. Quite a bit a bang! If your setup for pictures, it would
great to see this coil in action!
Regarding your strike distance and strikes to ground (very impressive!), how
is the base of the secondary/primary off the ground?
Next time I get the coil set up (with both toroids) I do plan to take some
more pictures. I don't seen to have the dimensions of the system in my
notebook. The secondary winding length is 27.6" with the coil form probably
about 31" long. The toroid sits 9" above the top winding and the coil is
mounted up on a 1.0" thick spacer so the toroid is about 39" above the top
surface of the roll around cart which is about 36" tall. This would put the
toroid about 75" off the ground - will measure this. The second toroid would
be another 12" above this. It is difficult to get the top toroid in place
even on my step ladder.
