Re: New toroid ?

Hi Luc.   It sounds as if you are trying to relive Tesla's Wardenclyffe
toriod. And I must say, it sounds very intriguing!  Go for it and let us
know how it works. I would like to try this arrangement using brass pipe
plugs silver-brazed upon a steel wire form.  Is this what you are doing
after you apply your filler to your  form?  Tesla did this with a
skeleton framework with protruding knobs in New York, he would rather
have had a toroid, but he settled for a 1/2 sphere.   Al.
