That sounds great. I couldn't get to your site to look at the setup. I was
wondering about magnifiers in general. From what I have gleaned from the
Internet and the archives, a magnifier doesn't produce any more sparks, or
rather longer sparks, than a standard two coil system. So, does a magnifier
magnify anything?? I always thought what Tesla described was an energy gain
from nothing sort of scheme and quite impossible. Can you shed any light on
this for me? Am I misunderstanding something? (As usual!) Anyone else help
me on this? Thanks.
