Thanks. My Electronics teacher said to make the secondary closer. it was
origionally much higher. LOL. He also said to make it multi-layered.
I beleive I can mqke the secondary higher, and i'll try to unwind it down
to the 1st layer, but I don;t think the first layer is very tight. so
basically, I tink I'm screwed, but we'll see.
I like that name.
By the way, my electronis teacher is the ond who set his dorm wall on fire
at Georgia Tech with his Tesla Coil. LOL.
he said it was multi-layered and that he used nail polish. I'm beginning to
doubt that now.

Your sec coil needs to be elevated 1.5 inches above the pri or it will arc
Sec coil must be a single layer, not two.
Your doorknob has to be a lot lower, about 3/4 inch above the sec last turn
or you will get power arcs off your last turn --- this is due to the sudden
reduction in capacitance.
For a name, how about "The Beast"?
