The Tesla is a surge generator and not a common transformer. That is why you
need the lowest resistance you can get for the secondary to have the highest
Q and therefore the highest voltage. Few turns with heavy wire.

Would it be better to make a 6" by 30" secondary with 1200 turns of 22gauge 
wire or a 6" by 24" secondary with 1200 turns of 24gauge. I'm leaning
the 24gauge, since the cost for a 10pound spool is the same but I'd have
more feet left over with the 24gauge. I'm also sick of NST's dying, whats
best way of going about getting a potential transformer?
