I learned of your web site through an internet search this weekend. Perhaps 
you could steer me in the right direction.

>From the mid-1980's through the mid 1990's, my father was deeply involved 
with Tesla Coil building and experimentation. He maintained 2 large coils, 
one a Model 150 Transformer (250v), the other a Model 50 Transformer (120v) 
both of which were purchased through an outfit called Resonance Research of 
Wisconsin.  Two large aluminum torroids accompany the units.

My father passed away 2 months ago and my mother has requested I liquidate 
all of his coil equipment.  One reference I checked suggested I try to do so 
via eBay, but I haven't really seen anything quite like the equipment my 
father used. My dad's investment was somewhere in the ballpart of $25,000 and 
I know probably less than 50% of that value could be recovered in the best 

Would you know of any of your colleagues that would be interested in all or 
part of such equipment?. I will be glad to provide color photos and as much 
description as I can (unfortunately, I am not well versed in the components 
nor am I very familiar with my father's notes). I would appreciate whatever 
advice you could provide.

Thank you for your time.
