Re: Spark length records- was Magnifiers vs normal TCs

A slightly edited answer to on off list question...

Margaret wrote that but when a number of people went digging...  Oops!  No
supporting data could be found!!  Tesla at times "speculated' about arc
length but the real documented length he achieved is 32 feet.  When one
goes digging into the times of experimentation and power available to him,
He simply didn't have the equipment needed to go much further than 32 feet.
 The New York project did have this power but was never operated.  So,
sorry, but those 130, 300, 10 mile arcs are all fantasy...  In the "free
energy days" of the 80's, all kinds of claims were made of what Tesla did.
However, we now know from actual documentation that what he really did was
super great, but within reason for what he had available to him.

Bill was going to try and fire it up this year in CA and IL but I don't
know if that ever was worked out.  He sent out a few announcements but then
he retracted a few.  Obviously, firing this monster is a major undertaking!!

D.C. once claimed to have made a coil for some rich person that went 60
feet but he was not allowed to talk about it.  Since that prevented
confirmation, "it don't count"...  Unless D.C has done something this
summer (he has been VERY busy) the claims of 75 and 120 feet are what you
can "buy", but not what has been made.  I think D.C. is off list these day
due to his work load...  These super coils are really only within the reach
of a few people and they question the list members for months about them
when they start to make them.  So we all pretty much know what's going on.

D.C. would be happy to show you photos, documentation, and proof if you
would pay for the coil to me made ;-))  A 120 foot coil would be in the
millions of bucks!!  We know how to make it, but the money is the issue.

I bet Bill will be happy to pull his out and stand you 55 feet away and arc
it to your head if you don't believe him ;-))))

Well, I see a bunch of mail and a note from Chip just arrived so I had
better turn the Tesla list faucet back on :-)
