Thanks alot for all your help.

actually, I'm not doing it for graduation. I'm in 10th grade. I'm just doing it for "Independant study" with my electronics teacher. The whole project was my idea. :)

I'll check out those websites. Thanks.

Hello Steven,

I think that if you are doing this for your graduation, you should do a good job, and not just glue and tape everything together to get your A.

In school they let you do homework, they don't give you all the answers without learning. And personally I think you should learn a little bit more by reading experiences from other coilers and read about their failures and success, only than you learn a lot. We can give you all the answers you need, but its more fun to see what others have done. A Tesla coil does not have to be expensive, but don't make a messy coil. Learning takes time.

There are some good websites you can learn from.

Free online basic electronic courses



News letters about electronics


Nikola Tesla (Tesla coil ring)


Everything about Nikola Tesla and Tesla Coils

Have fun building, and don't forget to read about the safety instructions, you only have one life!

Best regards,

Sebastiaan Draaisma
