In my youth, I used to go to the library and spend days poring through
those old magazines reading the Armature Scientist articles.  Great to know
it is much easier now :-))

I do note that I never saw a Tesla coil in the amateur Scientist column.  =:O
They had electrostatic generators and such, but never a Tesla coil.  I was
wondering if I just missed it?  I seem to remember C.L. Strong had a book
with one in them (that was impossible to find).
