Good layout of your web page. Hi, my name is Mark Johnson and I have a
question, have you ever heard of a VULCAN COIL ?  Well I have one, an
oak box about 3' x 1.5' x 1.5'  with two balls on top that are about
1.5' apart  that arc between them. Looking into the box I find that it
is two tesla coils back to back with them being 180 out of phase. It has

a nice brass label on the lid titled VULCAN COIL. By the look of the
power cord and the on/off switch I think it is around 1930's, note this
is not a home made unit, it was used for some type of commercial
application or science demo. There is a patent pend on the brass plate
Have you
ever heard of it or any info ???????

Thanks for any help.        E-MAIL    mark.johnson-at-lmco-dot-com
