Re: Grounding my TC

"With smallish Tesla coils, like less than 1 kVa, it's usually ok to
use the mains house ground for a ground. "

	I don't think that's a good idea.  When operating a very small coil
using the "mains ground" I had a failure (short) of a line bypass
capacitor in my scope.  Could be a coincidence but not necessarily.  In
almost every home there's a lot of delicate stuff hooked to the line and
better safe than sorry.
