X-rays from light bulbs/Tesla Coils !!!

John, Jeff, Group...

Wait a minute! Let's back up. Maybe I missed something.

X-rays from a TC excited light bulb? I use a VTTC to light lightbulbs
and/or create corona on the filaments all the time as I'm sure
many of us with VTTCs do.

Are there any x-ray experts willing to comment on the thread below?
