newbie here, sorry for interrupting....

sorry for intruding, but i have a question...

I couldn't find a nice neon transformer place here in Wanganui, New Zealand
and can't find any leads on local places with HV xformers, so I decided to
make me a solid state tesla coil (Steve Gantt's plans). The worst thing on
this plan is importing the amidon thingy.

My question is, does anyone have any advice for me? I've wound 700-800mm of
#26 SWG wire on  a 100mm PVC tube so far. By hand. Pipe lying on the floor.

another question, any NZ'ers who can tell me where to get a HV xformer for
tesla usage?

thanks in advance,
