I made the exact same cap as you are planning on. I used a 5 gallon
chlorine container, and 12 Corona beer bottles. The cap worked flawlessly
for two years until I abandoned it for MMC's. It is really convenient to
adjust the capacitance by simply removing or adding copper jumpers to the
Good luck with your project.

Hi Terry and the lightning gang, I'm back,
I am wondering why Steven used a homemade cap such as that when the bucket
cap is well designed/proven by the geek group. Mine will be a 5-gal.
pool-chlorine-tablet bucket with a screw-on lid, filled with Corona
bottles and the fluid.
Cheers to Steven, he's farther along than I am. I must admit, after
spending a year or so on this list I became quite overwhelmed. Then I
thought of making a smaller TC with only one 9kv nst instead of trying too
much like with 2x15kv NSTs. My first design is probably biting off more
than I can chew. I decided to go at it again starting with a much
smaller/simpler design to get the basics down first.
How about calling your tc, my tesla coil?
