:) It's prob'ly from me (the maggie freak!) A normal TC has just
the primary and secondary, but the "maggie" refers to a TC setup
running a 3rd coil powered by the output of the secondary (line run
from the toroid of the secondary to the base of another secondary).
Wether or not they work better, I dunno. Still working on that
(scope I fixed got fried tonight!). The extra inductance is a plus
(a la John Freau's research), and the magnifier gets the big sparks
away from the tank circuit (mine seems to attack the primary a bit
too often). Richard Hull and Bert Pool(sp?), have gotten
magnificent results from maggies, often getting huge sparks from
seemingly tiny coils. Are they efficient? Depends on the setup.
A "magical spark-length-increaser?" Nope. I'm still working and
was taking notes (the fried scope thingey), but it's a neat thing
Hope it helps!
