....my first few coils were based on info from a book 'HIGH FREQUENCY
APPARATUS' by Thomas Curtis , a reprint from 1916, ....a "little" out
dated, but a good starting point for me, several diff sized coils, info on
glass plate caps, gaps and constructing your own high voltage supply Xfrmr.
Back in 1985, I think, I saw a show down at the Denver planitarium called
'ZAP'. where they had a large T.Coil on stage, and people were lighting
florecent tubes in the front row,.....I dont know who built that coil, but
after that show, I got the spark bug !
