Re: DC tesla coil

Original poster: "Paul Benham" <paulb@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Hi Blake,

I have only used UF5408's for the de-queing diode, they are ultra fast, not
too expensive.  I have not had any problems using these fast diodes.

I'm sure the microwave diodes will work for the rectifiers okay.  I used
1N5408's that were very cheap.
