Don't get discouraged. Read some of the postings that we have been writing to you. They all contain great advice. You will have plenty of time to complete your project if you follow a "tried and true" design. You mentioned that you have a plan from Dr. Resonance? His plans should be quite detailed and adequate. He is one of the very best TC experts around. Also, check out the smaller coils at http://www.laushaus.com/tesla/minicoilcontest You will see some very precise construction with nice photo's to give you an idea of how things should go. Also, the real goal of your project is to scientific research methods (that's why it's a school project) so please read up on basic electrical theory, as well as researching all of the many Tesla coil web sites out there.

Best Regards,

I'm bummed cuz i tried my tc and id did exactly what i expected it to do, nothing. I can't find out what the resonant freq is. i don't even know that my retarted tc even has one. i aint got a clue as to the math i need if i were to go about getting my caps oriented to whatever freq i ned to put them at. basically, i'm up the creek without a paddle, and theres probbly a waterfall.
