tesla list newbbie
Hi all ,
I've been monitoring this list for about a year.
So far I've made 2 Secondary,(4"X24and6X18" with 24 gauge wire) and
I use a 9000 -at- 30 nst for power with a static gap of 2 1/4" carriage
bolts with 3pc's of copper (3/4"dia 1/8"between)
ANSI version ----)===(----- , I've used compressed air quenching upto 20
lbs usually don't
For Caps I've tried bottles but never really did that good.
what I'm using now is 4mil x 2 for each plate per cell x5 cells in
series (tried 4 but they smoked )
Plates (rolled ) were 6X48" aluminum foil with 8 gage stranded copper used
for connection(strip off 5" ,1/2" folds for 2" then roll )1/2" pvc form 1"
For dielectric 30wt motor oil was used
For a torrid I have been using a foam and foil ball.
Discharges are between 8"-18"
dependable , fun to watch
just cant see what I'm missing to get longer discharges
Thank you for all the information this site provides
